Instagram moves from the smartphone to the desktop

Instagram logoInstagram, the newly-Facebook-acquired social mobile photo tool that all the cool kids use, is now coming to the stodgy World Wide Web. Filtered photography shall no longer be limited to one of those newfangled smartphone apps.

“Your Web profile features a selection of your recently shared photographs just above your profile photo and bio, giving others a snapshot of the photos you share on Instagram,” the company wrote Monday in a blog post. “In addition, you can follow users, comment, and like photos and edit your profile easily and directly from the Web."

Instagram moves from the smartphone to the desktop

The new Instagram profile pages are not yet available for all users, so we couldn't definitely confirm that sharing and viewing are the only true functions. As far as we can tell the profiles are only available for a select handful for now, but the company says that will change throughout the week.

Some have lauded Instagram’s picture mosaic-style design, inspired by Facebook’s own layout.

“Facebook has pushed forward what it means to have a profile online and how to most effectively communicate an overview of someone’s digital identity,” Instagram chief Kevin Systrom told the Wall Street Journal.
