Today’s blog is a quick and easy run down about different feeds to find Instagram on your laptop or desktop. This has probably been blogged about a few times but it seems not everyone knows about doing the laptop/desktop version of IG. Now the only things you can do these feeds are the following, look at yours or other people’s feeds, add comments and likes, delete photos off your feed and last use them as a way to link yourself to social network pages and blogs. I’m going to talk about the 3 popular IG view feeds I know of. I’m sure there are more out there and if you want to send me an email about other IG sharing laptop and desktop feeds. This is my email firstname.lastname@example.org. The reason why I want to talk about these different feeds is someone Kik me. @karina_winter asked; “How would I view over 1,000 entries without crashing my iTouch ?” I answered her question with that you can view Instagram feeds on your laptop or desktop. I gave her the following sites to link her Instagram account with Gramfeed, Webstagram and Statigram. I explained that you can view them on your computer without the site crashing on you. If you noticed there are people with feeds over 500+ photos on their feed, I’m in the 2000s+ myself. I’m not sure why Instagram will not make a desktop version of the photo app sharing network, but I can understand people’s aggravations of a crashing app when you’re looking for a certain photo on one’s feed. Streamzoo and EyeEm both have desktop versions of their photo share site apps and you can load photo from your laptop and/or desktop too. Maybe someday Instagram will have a desktop/laptop version of the site…
Gramfeed, this was the first desktop version of Instargam I linked to. It’s a very easy and simple site to use, very straight forward in how it works. There is even a map of the world so you can find other people you follow all over the world. You can also hide the map too. What I like is they pick a random person as a suggested follow. Which I find to be really cool, because we miss out on so many great people to follow. It’s a great way to discover new people to make friends and follow their feed.
Webstagram, this is what I read from iPhoneography. That Webstagram is suppose to be the official Instagram desktop version to view your feed. I find that hard to believe since the site is a English/Japanese Site. It’s an simple easy site, but the thing I seem to get is a lot of errors of linking and loading the actual site. It seems compared to the other 2 sites this one seems to be down the most for fixing. Webstagram can be frustrating at times because of the slow upload of the actual site. I use this site for linking people on Instagram because it suppose to be the official desktop site.
Statigram is one of the most popular in the desktop/laptop sharing of your Instagram photos. It has the best layout, stats and connections to you Facebook account. I highly recommend you have your feed linked to Statigram. It has such a nice layout to view whatever you need with anything Instagram. The only thing it lacks is uploading your photo from a laptop/desktop. You can follow Statigram on IG if you want to, I follow them on my @combo_apps account.
Last part I wanted to say is all these people who do these sites are doing this on their own FREE time. They make no money and if you see a donation button just tap on it and give them a few bucks. You could help them develop a smoother and better site for everyone.
