In pursuit of world domination and being “truly” available to everyone Facebook is now making some changes to the Instagram website. Whether you download the app or not, now you can access all the in-app features from the website itself! While Instagram goes global they have a problem to deal with in Fake Instagram accounts.
Facebook to revamp Instagram website
Previously, users could only scroll through the images and add gifs as videos. The social media aficionados could like, share and follow some. Posting on the website was far-fetched. But in March the mobile web version was updated and posting photos from the mobile website were finally rolled out and the explore tab feature is next in line. The only features missing from the mobile web are video uploads, filters, stories, and direct messaging.
This will give a great boost to Instagrams plans of global growth strategy. The company tells TechCrunch
Instagram.com (accessed from mobile) is a web experience optimised for mobile phones. It’s designed to help people have a fuller experience on Instagram no matter what device or network they are on.
This is a great news for developing countries, where data charges and storage space or Internet speed can be barriers. Mobile version will make the Instagram website more appealing.
