I love photography, and so I can’t help but love any app that allows me to look through endless numbers of beautiful photos. The world’s favourite photo app Instagram has just launched new web profiles, meaning you can now view, like and comment on people’s photos from the web!
Instagram has really changed the way I take photos. It’s not all about my DSLR or compact digital camera anymore. I can take rather ordinary travel snaps on my mobile phone, then transform them into something beautiful with a little cropping and a filter. It’s perfect when I’m traveling because I can share pictures straight away, without having to wait to transfer pictures onto my computer.
It also allows me to see what my friends are doing, without the status updates and all the noise that you get with other social networks. The only thing that frustrated me up till now was that I couldn’t follow people on my computer, I could only do it on my smartphone.
Well now Instagram has solved that problem by introducing the new Instagram web profiles. You can follow users, like or comment on photos and edit your profile from your computer as well as your mobile phone. Your profile features a gorgeous gallery of your photos as well as your profile picture and bio- the layout looks a bit similar to the Facebook Timeline.
You can find your web profile by typing instagram.com/yourusername into your web browser.
