You Can Use Instagram Without The App Now
Instagram is blowing our social media minds right now.
The photo platform just rolled out a new way to upload pictures to your page, so get ready for even more #OOTD and #dogstagram hashtags.
Your feed is about to get a lot busier.
You know, posting those selfies isn't as easy as it looks. There's a lot of work involved.
Sometimes, there are major holdups while posting the cute pet pics we all adore — like when you try accessing your Instagram app, only to find that its "cleaning" after you've done yet another iOS update.
Do you ever wish you could just skip the app altogether?
If so, your picture prayers have been answered, darlings.
Now, Instagram is the younger child listening to its parents (Facebook) by following suit and allowing users to share pics on Instagram.com's mobile site.
By doing this, users would forgo the app entirely (if they choose to do so).
An Instagram spokesperson talked to Mashable and said,
It's designed to help people have a fuller experience on Instagram no matter what device or network they are on.
This will reportedly help the app reach new users and get Instagram past the billion-user mark.
That definitely leaves room for a lot more activity on the essential social media platform.
Let's examine the benefits, shall we?
Reports prove traveling is up among millennials because of their desire to post their whereabouts on social media, so it's benefiting the tourism industry for sure.
No need to thank us, just keep traveling and posting.
Apparently, Instagram can help with your diet, too.
According to a study from the University of Washington, sharing pictures of your workout or meals will likely motivate users and help them meet their goals faster.
Again, you're welcome (though you probably shouldn't be following my Instagram for healthy food inspo because you're just going to find ice cream and my Sunday-night sauce).
And naturally, Instagram is the perfect marketing tool for businesses, as reported last summer by The Huffington Post.
So with all of these perks, it's no wonder the company decided to increase the ways in which users can share their photos.
In the name of this terrific news, allow me to share a few photos of my pups, because #dogstagram.
Happy posting, everyone.
