    For some reason, all I see on my IG is Kardashian and Rihanna booty pics. Must be my settings. Hope the Pope doesn't run into the same problem.

    You do have to upload photos using your phone, but it doesn't necessarily have to be taken with your phone. I move photos from my X100T with wifi to my phone, edit in vscocam, and upload to instagram. I also download my Leica/Nikon film photos from my online stuff and upload to instagram. There are literally thousands of other 'serious' photographers doing the same thing. There is a lot of good work on there, maybe you're just not seeing it, or don't care to.

    I guess it just comes down to whether you're (generally speaking, not just you) willing to search for what you want to see, and not just expect it to be spoon fed on the explore page, because it's most likely there somewhere.

    Isn't that statement what is generally known as an oxymoron?

    gckless is correct. you want to have all 30 hashtags already added to the description before you post, as most instagram feeds are quick moving. and your post's spot in the feed depends on when it was created, not when it was edited or commented on. there is a surge of activity when you first post, and it quickly dwindles -- in a matter of minutes or even seconds.

    Not for long, though. Instagram is going to start algorithmically processing feeds, similar to how Facebook does it. It will no longer be chronological...

    True. Of course there are plenty of people who make a good living shoveling manure too - but I find myself thankful I took a different career path. :)

    True. I wouldn't act holier than thou when toward the manure shoveling people just because I don't know how they do it, especially when they're making millions vs someone who's working for the next vacation day.

    Well, I doubt I'd act holier than thou around them, since I used to do that job.
