Instagram is testing a new archive feature that lets users save their older posts to view them privately. These posts can later be made public anytime a user wants. An Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch the “archive option creates a private space for personal viewing of old posts.” The feature will be rolled out for everyone in the next few months.

Instagram will add a new encircled clock icon on the top right of user’s profile that will let them view archived posts. A photo or a video on Instagram can be archived by clicking on the three dots besides a post or holding down on a post. All archived posts will remain private. Instagram’s archive feature will likely reduce the number of posts users delete after they do not get enough likes or due to some other reason.

Instagram video apps tailored for iPhones and smartphones powered by Google-backed Android software feature 13 filters for special effects and post to people’s Facebook pages the same way pictures do.

The world’s most popular meal-blogging application has finally included a ‘tagging’ feature.

On Thursday Instagram introduced a new feature dubbed ‘Photos of You’, allowing users to tag their friends, or things, like the sandwich they’re having for lunch.

Facebook purchased Instagram last year for $1 billion, so it’s unsurprising that the tagging feature would finally make its across. Is poking next?

First, their beloved photo-sharing application moves from iPhone-only exclusivity to the Android phone masses. A week later, Facebook swallows up the tiny startup behind the app for US$1 billion. The purchase sparked worries that Facebook might shutter Instagram or change it for the worse by harvesting their personal information or shoving ads into their carefully curated photo streams.

“I’ve tried very hard not to be part of the Facebook ecosystem,” says Darwin Poblete, a Brooklyn, New York-based architect who has used Instagram since its early days. “Now I feel like the purchase has sucked me in. I’ll have to see how the privacy settings change to decide if I will leave it.”
