Our newest member to the team, Laura Scott is getting us up to speed with all things Instagram, as we enjoy the glorious sunshine:
Instagram released its newest feature on Tuesday, allowing users to search for a location and view a collection of publicly posted images and videos from that place. The new features allow users to jump into any location of their choice and explore what Instagram users in that location were doing at that time.
The new feature comes at the beginning of a bright and sunny week in the city, so the Belfast story has been full of picnics in Botanic, ice lollies at Belfast Zoo and al fresco beers at Bullitt. If you’ve been keeping an eye on the new feature, you may have even spotted some afternoon frisbee throwing at Cranmore Park by the Rumour Mill and Oranga teams. We hopped on the bandwagon and went to explore Instagram’s new feature and were shocked to see ourselves. We’d been caught on Insta, not once but twice! Cooling ourselves down with some Barnams in the office, and while out enjoying the sun on our lunch break – we can’t stay indoors all day!
