Instagram Web Profiles

So, Instagram now has just rolled out public web profiles: http://instagram.com/your_username_here. Someone has already helpfully added Instagram to the "Can we put this social network on MeFi profile pages, please?" list on the wiki. I wondered, though if maybe people who are interested would also like to link to their profile pages in this thread?

I follow a lot of MeFites on Twitter and other networks, and used to be you could automatically add Twitter friends on Instagram, but you can't anymore. I think it would be convenient and nice to see them all in here.

And those profile pages are very nice.

All web sites expand until they eventually include a profile page. Count me as meh on this pony.

You all take such beautiful pictures -- it's intimidating.

(not just those already in thread but Metafilter folk in general... though I guess this could be some sort of confirmation bias or something related to those who post their pictures online)

Cool. I've been hoping that Instagram would eventually create a web app of some kind so that I can Instagram photos not taken with my phone. This isn't that, but its a step forward.

Anyway, here is my profile page: http://instagram.com/adamlyle.

Given my recent acceptance of Instagram (I hated the way their filters ruined photos for the past few years, but it wasn't until I saw how a friend used it as a social network instead of just ugly photo filters that I finally "got" it), I support this. I'll crack the whip on pb today.

This is great timing. I got back from holiday just over a week ago where I had been putting occasional photos on instagram the whole way around. Now I can easily share them with my family and maybe try to encourage them to join instagram at the same time.

I just signed up, so I have no photos. instagram.com/zsazsafrazs. I avoided signing up for a long time because I was into old peel-apart Polaroid photography and I thought Instagram (and Hipstamatic before it) was cheating and using it was being a poseur. I've softened considerably on that front after seeing some actual good photos on it.

I just recently started using it too. It's fun!

chococat, because of your instagram screen name and my poor speed reading comprehension techniques, I originally read that your dad had a basement cologne shelf -- which amused me greatly.

(Probably because it totally seems like a thing my dad might have -- thought it would be in the garage.)

And filters don't "ruin" photos, any more than Photoshop ruins graphic designs. With all due respect that's ridiculous. They're a tool. Bad photographers ruin photos.

Hey, thanks for this thread. Total heads up for me. I actually stopped using Instagram because of the lack of a profile, despite generally liking the app/service.

I'll def. start using it again. instagram.com/rebeccaemiller. There's cute pictures of my friend with a baby bird on there. :)

I love Instagram. I'll go through and follow everyone in this thread, or you can find me here.

I have more than just concert photos, it's just that I recently went to a multi-day festival.

followup: mefites (as expected) have some damn fine instagram feeds.
