Instagram is one of the most popular apps and social networks in the world. For a long time, the Instagram experience was limited to mobile devices only. Little by little, Instagram has made its own web presence more fluid, and useful, and today’s newest rollout add to that overall experience.
Instagram Search is finally being added to instagram.com today. Users can enjoy the features they love on the app like searching hashtags, profile, and locations on the desktop version of Instagram.
“While Instagram.com is designed to be complementary to the mobile apps, it’s important to the global conversations that happen on Instagram,” an Instagram spokesperson said.
Like with the new Instagram app update, instagram.com will also have landing pages for geotags and hashtags. These landing pages will have their own top posts as well as most recent posts listed.
While Instagram is still a mobile app first, the web is becoming a more prominent part of their presence. Being able to drive traffic not only from phones and tablets but from PCs will definitely help impact their bottom line.
The new Instagram.com layout and search is rolling out, so keep your eyes open for it today.
