Instagram continues to move away from its mobile-first strategy with the launch of web feeds. Today the company announced that you can now interact with your feed on the web, just like you do on your mobile device.
In an effort to make the service more accessible, Instagram began expanding to desktops with the introduction of web profiles in November. Continuing down the same path, Instagram Feeds now have a web presence.
Your Instagram Feed on the web functions much like it does on mobile, making it easier for your community to keep up with your updates. Individuals can browse through the latest posts of the people they follow, as well as like and comment on individual photos.
By offering access to Instagram on a variety of different devices — desktop, smartphones, and tablets — the service has made it easier for your community to interact with your photos. While Instagram doesn’t currently support web-based uploads, your Feed on the web functions much like it does on mobile.
Individuals can browse through the latest posts of the people they follow and get updates in realtime as new ones are posted. Additionally people can engage in a conversation around a photo with inline commenting or like photos by double clicking on them or by pressing the like button.
To access your personal feed on the web, just go to Instagram.com and login.
