Rabat – Facebook has announced it is adding new features to the Instagram experience.
The CEO of the social media giant, Mark Zukerberg, announced on Tuesday ‘big improvements’ to the online social networking service Instagram to help users discover trending landmarks and areas.
In addition to Yosemite National Park in California, Zukerberg also shared on his official Facebook page pictures of the city of Chefchaouen, located in northwest Morocco.
“Today we’re making some big improvements to Instagram to help you discover more great content from across the community,” Zukerberg said.
“Every day we share millions of photos and videos on Instagram that provide a snapshot of the world. We’re improving the Explore tab to include trending tags and places, and also an upgraded search tool, so now it’s even easier to experience what the world is seeing.”
Facebook is improving the ability for users to find what they are looking for with the all-new Explore page, which surfaces trending tags as they emerge in real time.
The American social media giant is also introducing the new “Places Search,” which helps users search across people, places, and tags all at once.
Instagram was created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger and launched in October 2010 as a free mobile app. It was acquired by Facebook in April 2012 for an estimated $1 billion.
