So, on that note, here are the 6 best Instagram alternatives for you:

If we are looking for Instagram alternatives, Snapchat rightfully deserves to be on the top of the list. After all, Facebook copied many of Snapchat’s features and added them to Instagram to keep users from leaving. From Stories to disappearing messages, face filters, and more. So if you want to use the OG Instagram, I would recommend Snapchat without any reservations. The best part is that lately, Snapchat has revamped its efforts and brings new features such as Discover similar to Instagram Feed.
Triller describes itself as “an entertainment platform built for creators”. It’s a service that allows for creating, editing, and sharing short videos, usually around 15 seconds long. Just like TikTok, Triller’s main rival that the service pledged to overthrow, it works on a pretty simple basis: users choose a song either from the platform’s library or their own, select the song part that they want to feature, record a video and then customize it and edit it with the help of dozens of native filters.
Also, we already know, the AR filters on Snapchat are much better than those on Instagram. Snap Map is also a great place to explore events, breaking news, etc. To sum up, Snapchat is not a generic social media app but one that could foresee what direction social media will take in a few years, i.e. short video Stories. If you want to experience innovative new features, Snapchat is better poised to bring them than Instagram.
Strictly put, Pinterest is not the best Instagram alternative, but it brings some features which can be helpful for niche users. If you generally use Instagram for exploring and finding new creative ideas, Pinterest will offer you much better content. It doesn’t matter if you are looking for home design concepts or a wedding theme, you can find everything on Pinterest.
Tumblr is one of the oldest social media networks on the Internet, but it has not garnered as much popularity as Instagram or Facebook. It is widely seen as a microblogging platform, but Tumblr is much more than that. You can now post multimedia such as images, GIFs, videos, and more. There are also options to explore Tumblr with hashtags, and you can create a community with support for private chats. There is no support for Stories, though.

After TikTok got banned in India, many made-in-India short video apps sprung up having similar features. MX TakaTak is one of the popular ones out there, and now that TikTok is not available, it directly rivals Instagram Reels in India. Just like Reels, you can create and post unique content on TakaTak to gain followers and exposure.
