I’ve been wondering what’s been off about my recent use of Glass since the introduction of likes (or appreciation as they call it) and Andy nailed it.
Since this move I’ve had zero comments on my photography. It’s really changed the way that I’ve experienced the app and I’m now thinking I’ll just leave the service and get on with my life. For me comments are a much better mechanism for feedback, showing appreciation is nice but doesn’t really help me improve as a photographer.
I still feel it was a bad slope to start down by adding appreciation and I’ve cancelled my subscription. I’ll be using it on and off I’d imagine whilst I still have my subscription but I don’t see why I should invest my time in it right now.
