Pixelfed is an open-source, federated platform.

Opensource alternative to the big playersCons:
A bit hard to understand how the whole network works together
Love initiatives like this. It can and must not be the truth that the big companies keep us in their power just for the money they earn of try to earn with us.Patrick Loonstra has used this product for one year.
Great design, decentralized, open-source and ads freeCons:
No as many users as instagram, but it'll change for sure :)
I'm really worried about the future of instagram, I see it becoming like Facebook: bloated by ads.
I can't wait to have all my friends on a decentralized and ads free platform powered by the open-source community :)Pierre-Gilles has used this product for one day.
