Instagram Looking More Like Facebook

[1]Instagram once billed itself as a small intimate place for users to share and filter pictures …

… but that was before it was acquired by social media monster Facebook (NASDAQ:FB[2]) earlier this year.

Monday morning, the photo-sharing service began a roll-out of online profiles[3] that allow users to display their photos. The new web profiles bring Instagram closer in look and feel to parent-site Facebook. Visitors will not only see the filtered photos, but also a profile picture and biography of the user.

The intent is to make Instagram a true sister-site to Facebook so that users can easily go back and forth between the two to share discussions, comments and photos.

There is also a ‘like’ and ‘follow’ function in the new system, along with photo albums that allow visitors to see all of a users photos at once.
