Instagram has become insanely popular as a photo application, editing tool and even social network in its own right despite the fact it exists solely on our mobile phones. However, many are now wondering whether it’s set to make the big leap onto the web following a number of recent changes and a discovery by web designer Cole Reinke last week.
At the end of last month Instagram launched a new way to view photos, make changes to your profile and manage the way different third party apps interact with your account all from the web. Now it seems there are set to be a whole range of other features added to the Instagram web experience, following a discovery by web designer Cole Reinke, who came across a suspicious looking “View Profile” link last week (see photo).
There’s been no official confirmation from the Instagram team just yet about whether the link (which has now disappeared) means web profiles are on the horizon, but if the experience is translated onto the internetz soon it’ll be interesting to see what this means for the countless third party apps that have cropped up over the past year or so. Will people stick to what they know? Will they be deemed completely useless? And most importantly will an Instagram that’s available anywhere and everywhere be just as appealing?TechCrunch Image via Cole Reinke’s blog]
