Don’t have a smart phone but still want to look at your friends’ pictures on Instagram? Well now you can! Yesterday Instagram announced that users can now browse their feed and link out individual photos on the web, rather than just on a mobile device. Unfortunately, one feature that isn’t available yet is the ability to upload online.
Instagram is constantly working to improve their ever-thriving application with new features and instant availability. So why the big jump to the desktop version? We can only think of one thing – available ad space.
Back in December, Instagram received negative feedback after they decided to change their Terms and Services to support advertising revenue. While they released a statement stating that they will not profit from user photos, will this new web version be the perfect real estate for advertising? Nothing has officially been announced, but only time will tell!
What do you think of the new desktop version – do you “Like”?
