Glass: a social app for photographers

For example, currently, we don’t have likes. If and when we launch a feature in that vein, it’ll be private. We’ve intentionally avoided any public counts. We don’t want Glass ever to become a popularity contest. We’re not home for influencers. We are a home for photographers.

Tom Watson – On my Om

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a reasonable alternative to Instagram? I wish it could be Flickr, but I doubt that’ll ever happen.

Maybe Glass will have a shot. I’m number 482 on the waitlist so I’m about to find out.

UPDATE August 12, 2021: I’m in as @jbaty on Glass. I’ll play with it a bit and let you know what I think

UPDATE August 14, 2021: I like it. I don’t love it yet. It looks nice, but behaves in ways I don’t expect. It’s also froze on me a few times. I love the old-school Flickr feeling. I guess my problem is one that Glass can’t solve and that is I don’t like viewing photographs on a phone’s tiny screen.
