Instagram has announced on Monday that it will be launching an online web profile for its users. Your profile online will looks similar to the above photo of Nike's instagram page. Your profile would look similar to a facebook timeline, but with your pictures up as a collage instead of one cover photo as on Facebook.
Not everyone's account has been activated for the online version as of yet but you can always give it a try to see if yours is already set up. You can take a view of Nike's page to have an idea of how it will look by going to instagram.com/nike.
Just like the mobile app, which is available in the Apple App store and Google play store, you can set privacy setting so allow only certain people to view your photos. You can also follow other people's profiles to get an update on the pictures they post. The web profile allows you to share your photos with more people besides on instagram. Anyone can view your web profile if your privacy isn't set as private.
Instagram was bought by Facebook this past summer for $718 million after reaching a reported 80 million users in July. It wasn't going to take too long before Facebook offered a web version of the popular app. The web profiles should be fully released within the next week or two.
