Visual information and in particular photos are increasing the most popular form of sharing on social networks. Photos have been the key to the success of Pinterest and has driven the popularity of Instagram, which now has over 80M users. The latest version of Instagram, Instagram 3.0, is about a new kind of browser experience, Photo Maps.
Photo Maps, which is on iOS and Android, develops the idea of putting a narrative around the photos that people take using Instagram. Until now there has been no structure to the photos. Instram 3.0 uses location data to create a customized map of photos. People can then piece these together and provide friends with the stories about the uploaded photos.
The new Photo Map section is on the profiles, in addition to the standard Grid and Chronological profile view. You can easily navigate through this to see all photos you’ve geo-tagged in the past. People can edit i.e. delete photos they don’t want to include on their map, review selections and hit ‘Done.’ Once you’re done editing, images in a given location group will form stack on your Photo Map. Geolocation data will be removed from the ones you deselect.
