Instagram Unveils Revamped Search and Explore
Instagram has unveiled a new Explore page with trending tags and places, as well as a more powerful search tool.
For starters, Explore now features trending tags and places. The page surfaces trends in real-time, which helps members connect to events and conversations that are happening both nearby and around the globe. Additionally, the top of the Explore page features new curated collections that are regularly updated and include interesting accounts and places for users to discover. It is important to note, however, that the updates to Explore are currently only available for U.S. Instagram users.
Additionally, Instagram’s improved search functionality helps users better find what they are looking for. For example, the new Places Search enables users to discover content from locations around the globe. Plus, users can search for people, places and tags all at once with the page’s new Top Search functionality.
“With more than 70 million photos and videos posted to Instagram every day, wherever something is happening, chances are you can see it here,” Instagram states in its blog post. “Whether it’s behind the scenes at the NBA Finals, on the runway with the latest fashion trend at a favorite club with a local band, people are capturing moments large and small on Instagram. But, until now, there’s never been an easy way to find these moments.”
