I’m with you that this is part of the reason why I started using Instagram — while filters get a lot of the love for their success, I think the speed was just as important. But as quick as it is to produce an Instagram, it’s not Snapchat-quick. There’s still too much of a cognitive load to fame, filter, etc. So while I still love and use Instgram daily, I use it quite differently than I do Snapchat.
