News Summary: Instagram expands to the Web

The Associated Press

A CHANGE: Instagram, the photo-sharing app that was created for mobile phones, is expanding to the Web.

COMING UP: Previously, users' profiles existed only on Instagram's mobile applications. Now, users will have a website with a profile photo, bio and a selection of the snapshots they've recently shared on Instagram.

AKIN TO FACEBOOK: Instagram is owned by Facebook Inc. The layout of the Web profiles is reminiscent of Facebook timelines, except with little text and no ads. However, it's a separate service, and Instagram Web pages don't ask users to log in using their Facebook accounts.
