New York: Instagram has announced an update to its website which is likely to make it a bit more useful. download (1)

Nearly three years after it first came to the web, the company said it was rolling out a search feature on its website. You can now search for hashtags, locations, and user accounts right from your desktop, The Verge reported.

Instagram is also refining the landing pages for hashtags and locations, so that when you click a link on Instagram.com, you’ll see a page with the most popular results placed on top of recent photos.

The move comes about a month after Instagram introduced improved search and discovery features inside its mobile app, redesigning its “explore” tab to surface trending tags and places.

“Instagram.com is designed to be complementary to the mobile apps,” the company said in a blog post.

Popular photo-sharing platform Instagram on Friday announced its users can now make a “close friends” list on its “Stories” to share it with the people they’ve selectively added.

It is a global roll-out and to add people to their list, users need to go to their profile and tap on “Close Friends” in the side menu.

“Only you can see your close friends list and no one can request to be added, so you can feel comfortable adjusting it at any time. When you share to Stories, you’ll see the option to share with just the people on your ‘Close Friends’ list,” the Facebook-owned company wrote in a blog post.

If someone has added you to their list, you will see a green badge when you’re viewing their stories. You’ll also see a green ring around their profile photo in the Stories tray, the company added.
