Instagram 3.0: Pin your filtered food pics geographically

If you’re the kind of person who spends their nights out at restaurants taking finding the perfect filter for your food photos, the new version of Instagram will have you jumping out of your skinny jeans with excitement.

You see Instagram 3.0 allows you to display all your geotagged photos on a map. So you can now let people know exactly where you ate the Malaysian-style scallops on a bed of Hawaiian sea grass, or where you saw that cute piece of park bench graffiti.

Of course, if you’d rather not gift people a the kind of surveillance on your life that was once only available to shady government agents, you can choose not to make photos available on your map.

Interestingly, the new version also includes a number of new safety features. You can now, for instance report individual comments for being spammy or offensive. All you have to do is tap or swipe a comment to delete it, where you’ll also be given the option to report it.

The Next Web reckons the changes show that Facebook’s acquisition of the photo filter and sharing service are beginning to shine through.

it points to the focus on location as a particularly Facebook-style feature, but also points to the fact that Facebook now takes pole position on the sharing options.
