Instagram has announced today that users can now access their profiles via the web much like they would on a mobile device. The Instagram website allows users to browse through their latest photos of people they follow and engage with likes and comments. The co-founder of Instagram, Kevin Systrom, stated in a blog post that:
“We believe that you should be able to access Instagram on a variety of different devices, any of which may be convenient to you at a given moment – including your desktop computer or tablet. We do not offer the ability to upload from the web as Instagram is about producing photos on the go, in the real world, in realtime. On the other hand, Instagram for the web is focused on making the browsing experience a fast, simple and enjoyable one.”
It’s great to see Instagram finally streamline their mobile and web experience. Do you see this move opening Instagram up to a larger audience via the web?
