The difference between Vero and Instagram
For one, it's ad-free, and Vero's founder has given interviews about how he thinks Big Data is bad. And unlike Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, it won't algorithmically sort what it thinks you want to see most. Vero's feed is chronological, just like the good ol' days of Insta. You can also sort your network into categories related to your perceived level of friendship (are we diamond-level "close friends" or handshake-icon "acquaintances"?), follow hashtags and #brands, and make multimedia collections of your photos, videos, favorite recent records, movies, and TV, and some other shit I haven't really figured out yet because it's been so buggy. Lastly, and the big reason artists are taking to it, Vero is much laxer on its censorship policies, meaning you'll see a lot more nipples than you do on Instagram. It doesn't want to fall into the "fake news" pit of Facebook, though, so any abusive or offensive content flagged by users will be vetted.
