NEW YORK (AP) - Instagram, the photo-sharing app that was created for mobile phones, is expanding to the Web.
The service, which is owned by Facebook Inc., said in a blog post Monday that it will be launching Instagram profiles on the Web over the next few days. Previously, users' profiles existed only on Instagram's mobile applications accessed on the iPhone or Android devices.
Now, users will have a website with a profile photo, bio and a selection of the snapshots they've recently shared on Instagram.
The layout of the Web profiles is reminiscent of Facebook timelines, except with little text and no ads. Users will have a large cover image that's a collage of their old Instagram shots. Their profile photo is on the right side and their snapshots cascade down the page.
