Instagram update adds Explore tab, improved comments and Facebook likes

Becca Caddy Tech


Our favourite little photo app hasn’t had a big update since it was gobbled up by Facebook, but this week Instagram has added a few cool new features, including an Explore tab, improved commenting, speedier loading and further Facebook integration.

The Explore tab, which replaces the Popular tab and looks like a star/compass thing, allows you to see which photos are trending and search for specific users, events, hash tags or topics.

You can now also share the “likes” (or little hearts, whatever) you get on Instagram through to Facebook, just make sure you go to your Profile > Sharing Settings > Facebook and ensure it’s checked.

There’s been a subtle change to the commenting system too, meaning it’s easier to write out a full comment and see everything in the text box.

If you don’t have Instagram already (how do you make your face look nice?!) then you can download it for free from iTunes or Google Play.
