It’s no secret that Instagram has gone down the pan recently but Plates could be the next big thing. Recent updates and the way the Insta algorithm favors reels over basically else have forced photographers to find alternative platforms to share their photos where their own hard work and creativity won’t be overshadowed by an influencer with a Pretty Little Thing brand deal. 

Plates, like Instagram, works in a grid system only you can organize your photos into different albums - or should we say plates. These albums are displayed on your profile grid and you can choose whether you want them to be public or private or protected.
