Could Instagram's Collections Feature Make It The New Pinterest?

Instagram is building out its feature set, inching closer to becoming the be-all and end-all social media app for visual content. Stories, Live, post saving and direct messaging features are expanding Instagram’s capabilities, and in April, Instagram added a collections feature, which allows users to organize their saved posts into private collections.

The collections feature lets Instagram users create something akin to boards on Pinterest, though they’re not public or shareable. As users save posts, they can create collections to categorize posts like one might on Pinterest — Vacation Ideas, Nature Photography, Puppies, etc. With more content, more ways to create, and more ways to share, it’s becoming easier than ever to spend more time in the app and to find more of what users are looking for all in one place. With this new Pinterest-like feature, will Instagram step into the curatorial space to threaten Pinterest like it's threatening Snapchat?

The 10 Most Well Funded Patreon Creators On Social Media

Patreon is changing the way that artists live and work in the 21st century. Artists have unprecedented opportunities for exposure, but monetizing that exposure and making a living is still difficult in the age of ad blockers and free access to art. Patreon is changing the model by connecting creators directly to their audiences and giving fans the opportunity to support creators with small recurring pledges. There are over 50,000 creators on Patreon, and the top creators have tens of thousands of patrons.

It’s tempting to compare Patreon to Kickstarter with its tiers, pledges, and goals, but there’s a fundamental difference in Patreon campaigns, which are often sustained efforts. It’s not about creating a single project, but contributing to a creator’s ongoing work. We’ve compiled a list of the top creators on Patreon who have continuing support from a massive stable of engaged fans.

How Gaby Dalkin Went From Grilled Cheese Enthusiast To Top Food Blogger and Cookbook Author

Gaby Dalkin didn't always have the sophisticated palette we associate with talented chefs of her caliber. In fact, her culinary adventure started with grilled cheese and pasta.

Dalkin learned early on that in order to succeed in creating content online, one has to fully commit. Years later, she's preparing for the release of her second cookbook, creating her own product lines for Williams-Sonoma, and inspiring hundreds of thousands of followers on her blog and Instagram account with her recipes.
