Instagram Now Accepting Comments and Likes from the Browser

Watch out, Flickr — Instagram is coming for you. The popular photo sharing app has quietly updated its website to include commenting and liking on individual photo pages. Previously the website was “read only”, and any interaction with the social network was limited to its mobile interface. The new website, which also features larger images and a slick blue theme, suggests that the company may soon be breathing down Flickr’s neck by expanding beyond mobile. However, it still noticeably lacks profiles and photo discovery features.

    The minute flickr has a decent iOS app I’m through with Instagram. All I use it for is uploading to twitter and flickr, no Facebook account and don’t really care about Instagram community or popularity. I’m not holding my breath for yahoo/flickr to get their collective shit together but one can hope.

    As one web commentator once quipped, a lot of our social problems would be solved instantly if social media introduced the “Dislike” and “Hate It” buttons. It’s rather like walking into a voting booth and seeing your candidate’s party not listed because it might hurt someone’s feelings.
