Instagram Announces Direct Sharing / by john cheng

Instagram has always been one of my favorite apps, mainly for its simplicity. But now, more and more apps, not just instagram, keep adding depth to their apps that are supposed to increase the user experience. However with each added feature, it feels like the original intent of the application seems to get more and more lost.

It's not really a bad thing, and honestly, I'll probably use instagram direct quite a bit. It leaves me to wonder when enough is enough using facebook as an example. Facebook started when I was a freshman in college and it was very simple to use, but now I have no idea what I'm doing on facebook except for pushing content there.

What do you think?
