John HaydonDid you know that Instagram profiles on the Web are now live? Until now, all interactions on Instagram (purchased by Facebook earlier this year) took place entirely on smartphones. Here’s my profile pageif you’d like to see what they look like.

What can I do with Instagram Web profiles?

Whether you have your own account or an organization account for your nonprofit, you can share your own profile with anyone you want to see your Instagram photos. You can also follow other users, comment and like photos, and edit your profile directly from the Web.

All photos you’ve shared to Instagram are included in your Web profile.
