Web-based Instagram feed gets public hands-on: the limits continue!

Web-based Instagram feed gets public hands-on: the limits continue!

It's time for Instagram to bring the full square photo experience to the web, starting today, with one very important missing feature: photo uploads. While the public has been able to view browser-based profiles of Instagram users for a few months now, the ability of a user to view their own feed (including all of their Instagram friends) has only been made real today. To see your Instagram feed, simply head to Instagram.com and log in - it's just that simple!

Bonzart Ampel hands-on: The twin-lens retro camera Instagram wishes it was

Bonzart Ampel hands-on: The twin-lens retro camera Instagram wishes it was

When smartphone cameras are increasingly the go-to snapper of choice, you have to do something unusual to stand out, and Bonzart's oddly retro Ampel certainly does that. Styled - and in fact named - after German traffic signals, the odd twin-lensed camera looks like it should be a toy, but does something for its $199 price tag that most cameras would demand specialist lenses for: native tilt-shift photos and video.

Instagram boasts 90 million monthly active users, 40 million photos per day

Instagram boasts 90 million monthly active users, 40 million photos per day

Instagram might have gotten some crazy backlash from its policy changes back in December, for which they pulled an about face and returned it back to normal. However, a lot users were done with the service at that point, and vowed to switch to an alternative. Then again, that doesn't seem to be scaring Instagram too much, as the company has reported 90 million monthly active users, as well as 40 million photos being posted per day.

Instagram’s active users cut in half while Facebook fights loss claims

Instagram’s active users cut in half while Facebook fights loss claims

This week there's been more than one claim against the growing state of Facebook and its most powerful purchased ecosystem: Instagram. What we're seeing for the latter is a chart from AppStats that cuts their active user numbers in half, while Facebook is facing claims that they've lost 600,000 users in a month. That's not a whole lot compared to the number of people who use Facebook every day, but you'll find that Facebook isn't about to see claims against its popularity go unchecked.

Foursquare makes Privacy tweaks, wary of Instagram-style backlash

Foursquare makes Privacy tweaks, wary of Instagram-style backlash

Foursquare has announced changes to its privacy policy, displaying users whole names and giving businesses more customer data by default, though the check-in service is keen to point out that extra privacy can be restored with a few settings tweaks. Announced in an email to registered users over the weekend, the tweaks come alongside an amended Privacy 101 document that attempts to reduce confusion of the sort that gave Instagram such headaches earlier this month.

Instagram use surges on iOS and Android, falls 25% on Facebook

Instagram use surges on iOS and Android, falls 25% on Facebook

It would appear that the real impact of the Instagram Privacy Policy update (and subsequent revolt on the part of its users) has come to light - a relatively massive 25% decrease in daily users - but there's a catch. While the statistics given by AppData could very well be due in part to Christmas and the holidays in general, a decrease of over 3 million daily users is nothing to scoff at for one of the most-used apps on the market. According to AppData the amount of daily users Instagram is working with fell from 16.4 million to 12.4 million between the week the Privacy Policy changes occurred and now... on Facebook. Meanwhile the app has taken off in popularity in its original iPhone and Android form.
