Instagram upgrades web presence
Can it still be hipster with an investment from Facebook?
Instagram is slowly utilising Facebook’s investment to upgrade its web presence with the launch of the Photo Page. This features larger images and the ability to like or comment on photos. The app has also been given a touch-up to make it feel more refreshed.

While the Android and iOS offerings have been updated and refined at a steady pace, the web side of things has usually lagged behind. This is a step in the right direction to bring people stuck on desktops in-line with what is available on mobile devices. The update still doesn’t unify all of your Instagram photos together and there is still no discovery or profile element. So it’s a start, but there is still more to do. Third-party app developers will be hoping that this inevitable upgrade will take some time because once a gallery view is available additional apps will see less frequent use.
