instagram announced and released the latest version of its App. Instagram 3.0 is now available to everyone. For this update, they focused on the browsing experience. They’ve introduced a new and unique way to browse your photos and others’ photos on a map, which means you’re no longer constrained to browsing through page after page of photos. They updated all the screens in our app to be more visually consistent and polished. You’ll notice new layouts throughout the app that feel fresh, yet familiar. They also introduce infinite scrolling in feeds so that you can quickly see more photos while browsing around the app. And finally, they’ve improved reporting tools, users can now flag both photos and comments for review with ease.
Introducing Photo Maps, a new way to browse photos on Instagram.
Your Photo Map appears on your profile and lets you showcase your photos on a map. Also, you’ll be able to see other users’ maps from their profiles as well. Before your map is visible to the public, you’ll be prompted to review any photos you previously geotagged. Additionally, we’ve made it easy to remove photos from your map at any time, which will remove any associated geo-data but leave the photos intact on your profile.
New look for user profiles, the Explore tab, hashtag & location pages
Larger text box for captions
It’s now easier to write and edit longer captions for your photos.
Geotag your photos by selecting “Add to Your Photo Map”
Let people know where you took your photo by turning “Add to Your Photo Map” on. By enabling this feature on your photo, you will store your current location with the photo and it will show up on your map. You’ll also have the ability to choose a specific place name (e.g. “South Park Cafe”) to associate with your photo. Learn more in our help center.
Infinite scrolling (automatic “load more”)
Now, when you get to the bottom of a page, we’ll automatically load more photos for you — no need to tap a “load more” button.
