Instagram Introduces Fully-Fledged Web Profiles For All Users [Updates]

instagram web 300   Instagram Introduces Fully Fledged Web Profiles For All Users [Updates]Want more Instagram on the Web? After the recent launch of the Web viewer, Instagram is now rolling out new Web profiles, with all the features you’ve come to know from your regular mobile profile. These Web profiles include a Timeline-like set of featured photos on top, along with every photo you’ve uploaded to Instagram below. When viewing a Web profile, you can easily like and comment on photos, and also follow other users directly from the Web.

Instagram on the Web is highly popular, and with the absence of an official solution, alternatives have been springing up all over the place. While the new Web profiles are still limited – no search, no news feed and no uploading options – it’s still an easy way to share your Instagram presence with others. You can also edit your profile information from the new Web profile, which might be easier than doing so on mobile.

So how do you access your new Web profile? Point your browser to[username]. You can do the same for any Instagram username, even if you don’t have an Instagram account. If you can’t see your profile yet, don’t worry. Web profiles are still rolling out, and everyone should have one by the end of the week.

If you’re wondering who can see your photos on your Web profile, that depends on your own settings. Public photos are visible to anyone who stumbles upon your profile page, Instagram user or not. While there’s no link to your profile page anywhere unless you share it yourself, it’s still something to keep in mind. If your photos are set to private, only logged-on Instagram users of your choice will be able to view your photos.

What do you think of the new Web profiles?

I wonder why it takes them so long to release this feature.
At last they rolled it out. It had been such a pain when a non-Instagram user wants to take a look on their friends’ collections. Kudos to Instagram:)

Yap, even instagram is great.. Not all people consider to use their service..

I think they want to keep their focus on mobile, that’s why they’re doing this so slowly, and you still can’t view your feed or upload photos on the Web. But it’s a nice step forward!

Lisa Santika Onggrid

That makes sense. Anyway, with the boundary of smartphone and tablet and laptop begin to blur, they should really give extra attention to the web version.


finally :)

No wonder they got acquired by Facebook. This new layout is very Facebook-ish.

Come to think of it, I really don’t know how to view all the pictures I uploaded in the cloud using Instagram. Thanks. I guess, I do have to make an effort knowing how to access the photos.

When you already using instagram for some times, you’ll realize its not that hard to use the system..

Yaara Lancet

Now you can use your Web profile for this, but there’s also an option in the mobile app to view your photos.
