Shelly Palmer Radio Report – May 31, 2013

Instagram just got a whole lot more social. The Facebook-owned photo app recently added photo tagging on both its iOS and Android versions. Now, when posting a picture, you’re able to tag people or brands in your photos, just like you can on Facebook. Wonder if someone tagged you in a picture? Check out the brand new “Photos Of You” section in your profile. Also like Facebook, Instagram will notify you when people tag you in a picture. You can also make it so that you have to approve a tag before your name is attached to a picture, and you can also un-tag yourself from a picture at any time. Before this update, users @mentioned each other in the picture’s description as a workaround way of tagging people in images, but those tags weren’t collected in any one place. With the Photos Of You section, you’re now able to start building a history of where you’ve been and what you’ve done, one filtered photo at a time.
