In July of 2015, Instagram had something new for its users and the internet public at a larger level. The picture-pinning service introduces an all new way to search the web. The launch of this service is once again set to work revolutionize searches on the web.
Until Instagram’s brand new pic searching algorithm hit the web, conventional searches were archaic, if not challenging. However, with web-based searches that Instagram built the experience is no longer the same. Searches are more fluent now for pictures, especially celebrities. It will now be possible to quickly pick-up images of favorite celebs relaxing at private, exclusive locales in exotic resorts, with Instagram’s search service.
Desktop experience doubles
The earlier fast-paced experience of mining celebrity pics now has an all new spin. Instagram will now have a comprehensive desktop experience. Users can mine through hashtags, profiles as well locations at the all new ‘instagram.com’ for the ultimate line up of favorite celebrity pics. With the mobile app becoming the genesis of much of this content, there is a whole new world of pictures that has begun now.
Instagram’s spokesperson revealed that Instagram.com is built to complement mobile apps. Therefore, global conversations now become seamless in the all new contextual platform that Instagram.com can offer.
What is Instagram.com all about?
Instagram.com is an app for the mobile which simplifies searches, especially geotags, hashtags and more. While a search request is sent for a particular location, one can also view the top-ranked posts for the same. This feature is true for search locations as well as hashtags.
As per latest information available, Instagram has shared that web embeds of the app, have led to the blast of content growth as well as traffic for the app. In June 2015, the app had purportedly over 5.3 billion impressions, no less.
The expansion to the desktop format, has therefore, hit a gold mine. In the ecosystem where there are not many who want to reverse integrate with the desktop settings, this offers Facebook Inc to reach out to millions of users without much competition. For Facebook Inc, there is much at risk, because it has to build its Messenger product for all formats to ensure seamless integration. Instagram for desktop is only the first step forward for Facebook Inc now.
