How will web profiles help grow Instagram

By exposing Instagram to individuals who aren’t familiar with the app or don’t understand its attraction (yet). It encourages more user interaction and gives current users more ways to market their images. This may also encourage new users to try Instagram because it (suddenly) transforms from a trendy mobile app to a new social network.

Despite the enormous number of Instagram users on mobile, the web demographic is substantial enough that Instagram cannot ignore it. Yes, Instagram seems to be all the rage among the more tech-savvy crowd, but I have a lot of acquaintances that don’t get it. They, on the other hand, appreciate the photographs I share from my feed.

I’m guessing the shift is also to make place for commercialization, but I’m not sure how. I’ll give you a few examples off the top of my head:

  • Commercials – Users are more tolerant of ads on the web than on a small phone screen (I’m not concerned by ads on the Facebook website, but if they suddenly started displaying ads on their app, I’d be a lot more irritated). This seems me as a natural strategy, given that Facebook is most likely looking for methods to recoup their investment.
  • Branding/Partnerships – I’m seeing a Pinterest-style board/gallery; I know there are a few brands on Instagram now (Urban Outfitters, HelloGiggles, etc.) and a site profile page would give them a place to advertise new trends and lead fans to. I wouldn’t be surprised if Instagram were to be linked into Facebook’s own brand pages in the near future.
