Instagram Opens Search Capabilities on Desktop

The company announced Monday that users can search for people, hashtags and places on Instagram.com.

Instagram, the Facebook-owned mobile photo sharing app, is slowly adding desktop capabilities (such as support for larger photos).

While you can view, like and comment on photos via desktop, many vital functions are still available on mobile only.

The company announced Monday that users can search for people, hashtags and places on Instagram.com.

While it’s still a long road toward having users be able to upload photos to the site on desktop (surely a marketer’s dream), the company is working toward making Instagram a more desktop-friendly platform.
