Instagram Tags Allow You To ID People In Photos Like Facebook
The Facebook feature of photo tagging is coming to Instagram, and will allow you to further customize your photos and include friends. The feature has been dubbed Photos of You, and was added to the iOS and Android versions of Instagram Thursday.
Now users have the ability to include friends in their photo-sharing by tagging them, much as with photos on Facebook.
When you upload a photo to Instagram, you will be asked whether you would like to tag anybody in the picture. Then, all you have to do is tap a person’s face and insert a username.
Also, just like Facebook, you can tag places and companies that have accounts.
Once tagged, you will get a notification and the picture will show up in the Photos of You tab, which makes its debut with this update.
“Photos are memories of the people, places and moments that mean the most to us. We have always sought to give you simple and expressive ways to bring the stories behind your photos to life,” a post on Instagram’s official blog said.
But once that is lifted, you can easily still hide your photos and use the setting that asks for your approval before the photo shows up on your profile. Just like Facebook.
However, the new Instagram feature does deviate from its parent company in at least one area. Only the user posting the picture can tag the photo. That means that not just anyone can recognize you and post it to your profile.
For now, only you can see the Photos of You tab.
“You’ll have until May 16th to play around and get used to the feature,” the company said in a post.
The new version of Instagram, 3.5, is now available in both Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
