Facebook is broad in terms of social networking whereas Twitter and Instagram are more focused. Instagram is less about commenting or getting into debates then it is about showing the world around you. Filters or not, I actually love the pictures my buddies take because it always feels like they are on some awesome adventure. I can join them by just opening an app. Vice versa too. And I know that sounds incredibly cheesy, but I love how Instagram doesn't have the weight of Facebook. Anyone on FB before the election can attest to that.
