Your point seems to be not that Instagram is actually bad for startups, but that startups that have unrealistic expectations about being like Instagram may become discouraged when their businesses don't perform as well or don't sell for as much as Instagram. I do think the title is a little misleading, but I see what you're saying. Perhaps using Instagram will be good for small businesses, especially for sharing. What do you think of its actual use for small business?
