Instagram, on Wednesday, launched a notification tab on its web interface, similar to the activity tab inside its app.
With the new feature, users will be able to see who liked or commented on their posts, or who followed or tagged them. The update is available now for everyone, an Instagram spokesperson said.
The move which could drive greater usage on desktop, is fascinating, because the Facebook-owned company keeps its photo-editing and sharing features restricted to its mobile app.
The company first launched user profiles on the web in 2012, before rolling out a scrollable feed with likes and comments a year later.
Last year, another of Facebook’s acquired app, WhatsApp, launched a website for desktop users.
