After being available for nearly two years now, Instagram has finally released a real website for everyone to enjoy photos and ‘art’ uploaded from all their friends. Previously we haven’t had a full web experience like the mobile app for Android and iOS offered, but today that all changes. Instagram has just announced their official webpage.
Now the more than 90 million and growing Instagram users will be able to access and view their own photos, as well as all their friends on the web just as they’ve previously done on the app. For some reason this has always been missing and the focus was purely on mobile, but now that Facebook is in charge that’s a changing.
Late last year Instagram.com was opened up and you could view profiles and see images, but that was all. Now you’ll be able to see everyone you follow and all the photo feeds just like the app. Instead of just purely for profile page views.
“Your Instagram Feed on the web functions much like it does on your mobile phone. You can browse through the latest photos of people whom you follow with updates as people post new photos. Like photos by double clicking on them or pressing the like button.” — Kevin Systrom, Co-founder.
Nothing really too new or exciting here, as they’ve just expanded the website to be a real page instead of just profiles only. Most users will still opt to view and like photos on the mobile apps, but if you’re on the PC you’ll be able to enjoy the same experience — something that should have been available long ago. So for all those photography and Instagram fans, give it a try today.
