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.

Here are some links from across the web:

Mashable has step-by-step instructions on how to embed your images and videos.

CNET also features a how-to guide.

All Things Digital says that Instagram added this feature in order to stay relevant in the “real time” space.

    Dear Wiley Friends: Do you want me to interview myself, or do you want to interview me? Live, or with a set of questions? The best! L. H. Sperling

    I am interested in giving Wiley some autobiography relative to my book writing, but I’m not sure how you want to do this: Shall I write my own questions and then answer them? Or, do you want to interview me live? Or, something else?
