Instagram to allow users to embed images and videos
Instagram developers announced that users will now be able to embed images and videos into their blogs or other sites (not including Twitter). Currently, this function is only allowed through a desktop web browser to those who have public profiles.
The directions are as follows:
“Now, when you visit an Instagram photo or video page on your desktop web browser, you’ll see a new share button on the right side of your photo (just under the comments button). Click the button to see the embed code. Copy the block of text it gives you and paste it into your blog, website or article. When you hit publish, the photo or video will appear.”
You can read the full official announcement on the Instagram blog.
