    How is this taking a shit on it's userbase?

    By attempting to turn it into a YouTube 'creator-led' platform which will flood everyone's feeds with zany shorts about how to train your parrot I guess.
    Facebook tried it too with their Facebook Watch thing but that didn't work.

    Fair comment though Les, apologies - been up since 5.
    Will change title now.

    Even 10 seconds is too long.

    It says it's a "dedicated space" so doesn't that mean it'll be something separate to the main feed? Like stories are up above, you can dip in if you want to, or just ignore them?


    Obvs it's well probable that they'll just change it up and fuck with the main feed, filling it with sponsored bollocks. In which case, bye bye.

    Tangent: since quitting the fags I've been getting up at 5 most mornings, with no alarm. Mornings are good.

    congratulations.
    I'm nearly 3 years clear of that awful shit.

    Honestly, not yet, so far I've thought I wouldn't be one of those people that "now finds it disgusting" but is that on the way?
    Perhaps because I grew up in a house of smokers

    I sometimes walk past the smoking area at work to get a whiff as I like the smell sometimes. However proper smokers are now definitely in the minority with regards to vaping peeps. At work, anyway.

    It'll probably come - it makes me feel sick now.

    i recently found out you can see how long you spend on each site/app on your phone.
    instagram is by far takes up the majority.
    its pretty depressing.

    Maybe this is a good opportunity? Sidewalk could take advantage of the long-form videos and put stuff like Raiders of the Lost Park up. Might boost 'engagement' or whatever it is you guys measure. Sidewalk primarily exists through its social media output now, maybe it'd be good to get on a new trend early?

    I thought there was something about it only being 60 seconds that made you have to be more creative in a way. You had to cut out any crap. A minute is quite a long to keep someones attention on Insta. You're only a fast scroll away from something else if you can't be arsed. Just the way the platform is designed, to keep looking and digging for the next thing, right under the thing you just looked at. A fast way to take in a lot in the shortest time possible.
