If you like taking pictures with your iPhone, you probably already know about Instagram
, a free app that merges the fun filters of Hipstamatic with the ease and sharing of a fast, mobile application.
Instagram launched this fall, and as a photo-sharing experience is pretty unique. There's no website to log into and upload your pictures -- everything takes place on your phone; shooting, sharing, following, commenting. The New York Times has taken a look at the service a few times in past weeks; when they surpassed a million users
and today's article (featuring Atlantan Davin Bentti) here
As a young product, there are a few places for improvement, specifically in following the photos of people you don't know
. You can find and follow your email contacts, your twitter or facebook friends, but you can't follow people locally
. It's most likely a feature that's around the corner, pun intended.
In the interest of providing a wider platform for those of you on instagram who are interested in pics of Atlanta from people you may not know, feel free to leave a comment here with your instagram username. Or tweet us @acptweets
and we'll update this post. And if you'd like to be removed from the list let us know
