Instagram has been an application that has been around for quite a long while and has been helping the markets of technology develop newer and better innovations than ever before. The Instagram application has now reached 400 million users and has been doing a splendid job in the markets of technology. Instagram has been adding on to their features at a rather rapid rate, and the company has been introducing more and more updates and upgrades over time. The Instagram for Web has been one such pleasant change which was introduced to the users in 2012.
Since then, the Instagram for Web has been getting many updates, and has slowly been evolving like a social network, like Instagram parent brand, Facebook. Facebook has taken it upon them to bring out several changes in the way the world of technology functions. The company has now introduced a major change to the layout for the Instagram web version as they have now added the ability to view notifications in the Instagram for web version of the app.
Earlier, Instagram for Web was only meant for liking and commenting on photos and making minor edits to profile. It has now taken one major step towards becoming a fully functional social network as notifications have made their way through.
The one major difference between notifications in the Instagram for Web and Instagram for mobile is the fact that the Instagram app users can see notifications in two columns – ‘You’ and ‘Followers’, where you can see what your followers are up to, and what kind of photos have they been liking and commenting on, and more. It’s like a Facebook ticker on Instagram. That service has, however, not been a part of the Instagram for Web service.
Instagram is soon becoming a social network for the web, however, the focus is still on the app, and will always be.
