I have learned from experience never to trust third-party services to be the primary storage for anything I create. I organize at home then distribute. As Alan Levine says "The cloud should never be the primary place to store / manage what you create; it should always be the exhaust." It may be a lot easier to take a photo on your phone and upload to Instagram, but then your photo is stuck in Instagram and at the mercy of their search engine and download policies. "Once you find yourself endless scrolling to find your own photos, that quick to post convenience factor evaporates."
