Instagram Adds Notifications Tab For Web Users
Instagram started as a mobile-only service, but now it’s elaborating its web version so you can use the service without opening your phone. Today Instagram rolled out an Activity tab on internet that’s equal to the notifications tab inside its app. Right here you’ll be able to see who Liked or commented on your posts, or who followed you or tagged you. It’s now available to all users.
The change is exciting, because it keeps its photo-editing and sharing features limited to its mobile app.To be sure, the web service stays a second-class citizen, however the update obviously enhances its’s presence on the Web. It could force higher usage on desktop and hint at more desktop Instagram improvements to come.
Instagram refused to comment regarding whether this was part of a higher push on the web, so this seems like more of a one-off feature addition. However making Instagram more cross-platform enhances its presence and network effect. That could develop its channel and ensure no other service usurps it as the hot permanent photo sharing app.
