Grace vs Flow-Flow: how to choose wisely
Grace Instagram plugin can be a better choice compared to Flow-Flow Social Streams under certain conditions. First of all, one should take into account the fact that the versatility of Flow-Flow imposes certain limitations on the use of some layouts and elements inside them. With Flow-Flow we have to unify different APIs and content to display it beautifully in one stream.
Grace offers more options for customizing styling elements, since this plugin does not need to reckon with the variety of content types from different social networks. Using only one social network allows to optimize the style of content design in a wider range of variations.
Another important factor in choosing a suitable plugin is its price. Flow-Flow costs $36 and along with the expansion of its functionality, the cost will increase. Grace Instagram plugin costs $24 and will always be cheaper than its more universal ancestor.
Grace evolves independently providing Instagram focused features. It's always the better choice to go with Grace if Instagram is the only and key social network for your brand or business. If you want to capture various sources of content from social networks, only Flow-Flow will be able to meet your needs.
