Instagram, a smartphone centric photo-sharing which was recently purchased by Facebook, has extended from mobile devices to the web by introducing Web profiles for its users.

With the newly implemented profiles users can now share their pictures via PCs rather than just iOS and Android-powered Smartphone’s and tablets. This would make it easier for users to discover each other’s photos.

As predicted Instagram’s new web-based profiles have a lot of resemblance to the design of Facebook’s pages. They feature a profile image and short biography of each user above a grid showing their recent photo uploads.

Currently users are only able to view and download images from the service. But it is believed that upload functions will come soon. Despite this limitation the move should help boost the service’s popularity by making it accessible to more people than before.
