Quick Tip: Embed Instagram Photos and Video on the Web


Instagram Video has only been out a whopping three weeks. While industry watchers are eager to anoint a winner between Facebook’s Instagram and Twitter’s Vine, results just aren’t clear yet.

The competition may just be warming up. With a larger user base, Instagram is rapidly incorporating functionality that rivals Vine’s offering. The latest in the bunch? The ability to web embed Instagram photos and videos, enabling the sharing of fully attributed Instagram content across the web. And it’s pretty simple. Here’s how:

1. Locate the photo or video that you would like to share on Instagram from your desktop web browser.

2. Click the share button on the right side of your photo under the like and comment buttons.
