I’ll miss Photovine

Photovine’s parent company was recently purchase by Google. This means they’re shutting down Photovine. We’ll be left with replacements like Instagram and Piictu. Both are similar but neither compare. The biggest difference is that Photovine allows you to follow things that are interesting to you as opposed to Instagram and Piictu just allowing you to follow users. Ugh. Boring!!

Let’s say I like records and I want to follow “vinyl”. I search for vinyl and choose to watch that category. Cmon, what’s the real benefit of following people you probably already follow on Twitter or Facebook? Check out some screen shots from their iPhone app and tell me they haven’t dine it right. I guess this is why Google bought them.
