On February 11, 2013, social media agency fishbat comments on the article published by IGN’s Matt Clark about Instagram taking a prolonged move into the realm of web browsing.
According to the article, users will no longer be limited to using the app to check their picture feed, as web browsers now support the option of a live updating feed. The article states that as of February 5th, Instagram uses can view their full Instagram feed online.
Co-founder of Instagram Kevin Systrom claims, “Your Instagram feed on the web functions much like it does on your mobile phone,” making the transition to browser an easy move for concerned users.
However, IGN reports that uploading pictures to the site is still not functional at this time. According to Systrom, web uploads are unavailable due to Instagram being “about producing photos on the go, in the real world, in real time.”
Digital marketing agency fishbat, winner of Long Island’s Best Social Media Agency Award, believes that the move to web browsing is “a step in the right direction.” Clay Darrohn, CEO of fishbat, Inc., comments that “Giving users the ability to access their feed from an additional outlet provides them with not only more control, but the freedom to explore and interact within the Instagram world.” Additionally, Darrohn claims, “Instagram is an essential tool in social media development for businesses, so expanding upon the initial app is a smart and inevitable move.” In addition, while Darrohn believes it would be beneficial to allow users to upload images using the website, he applauds the company for their motive to differentiate themselves from the competition.
