The Instagram Alternative Is Kickstarted 

Jason McFadden:

The initial screenshots look very nice. It begins with a not-so-subtle-red theme, which is a stark yet welcome departure from the blues of Twitter and Facebook.

The name itself, Bokeh, leads me to think that the social site will focus more heavily on photography than on celebrity influencer status – cough, Instagram, cough.

Interestingly, that’s why I went with red. Blue is an overused color in social media apps, and I wanted a color as bright and bold as I am. Bokeh is me, and I want it to be a success or failure by representing my values and my vision of optimism for how the web can be better for all of us.

I’m grateful and excited to see others passionate about this vision too.
