Other users can now see your recently shared snaps, photo and bio.
Free photography app Instagram will be introducing users’ profiles to the web over the coming days, offering fellow Instagramers a look at your recently shared photos.
By rolling out Instagram profiles across the web, users will also be able to edit their profiles directly from the web, as well as follow other users, comment and like photos.
The announcement comes hot on the heels of what has been a landmark period for Instagram, with Hurricane Sandy sending users into a photographic frenzy – the total number of Sandy pics posted has now topped 1.3 million, with peak times seeing up to ten images posted per second.
Commenting on the app’s next challenge, Kevin Systrom, CEO of Instagram, said: “How do we mine all these photos, make sense of them so you can consume the most interesting photos about Sandy?” He then went on to brush off rumours that Twitter is preparing an Instagram-like set of photo filters for pics posted to the service, saying: “Instagram is a community, not a filters app.”
