In this article, we will guide you and explain the difference between the two formats in an easy way so that the next time when you come across such a situation you know what to do.


What is HTML?

HTML is basically a language that describes web pages. So it is intended to use for the web, that’s the simplest way to explain it.  Although it doesn’t do justice to it, here we just need to explain it to the normal non-tech people. It helps you to save and publish your documents with headings, text, links or photos. 


What is JSON?

JSON is also a TEXT-based format that is used to transfer data between the web. Like to send data from the web to the client.

Actually, it boils down to your personal preference. You can either chose HTML or JSON. There is not much difference. It depends on what you intend to do with your data. Whenever you want to download your data from Instagram it will ask you for the format.

Let’s say you have your Instagram account and you are going to delete it permanently. You want to save your data as good memories so that you can someday scroll through it again. Save it as HTML. Because you easily pull it up in any browser whenever you want. It is also easy to share with your friends and family. HTML is a simple and easy way of viewing your data.

On the other hand, JSON is mainly preferred when you have to do some sort of data analysis. Maybe you are trying to search for something within data JSON is definitely a way to go. You can also convert your JSON file to XML or CSV format and use it in EXCEL to search for something you are looking for.


JSON or HTML. What’s better.

I would vote for HTML because of its ease of use. But It really depends on the context though.
