Instagram today announced two major updates to the shopping feature in the Instagram app that's designed to allow users to make purchases directly from Instagram.

Shopping within Stories, a feature that began rolling out in June, is expanding to businesses across 46 countries. When watching Stories from brands, items that are featured can be tapped so you can learn more about them.


Instagram is also adding a new Shopping channel in the Explore section of the Instagram app that's personalized to each individual user. The Shopping channel is located alongside other topic channels, and it will feature brands you follow and brands you might like.

The Shopping channel in Explore is rolling out to Instagram users starting today and will expand globally "over the coming weeks."

Instagram can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I think it *is* a more honest way to advertise clothing. You buy it cause someone you know takes nice pictures of it.

Just give us a paid version [AD Free] Zuck!!!
Please, they don't even have it bot-free yet. In fact, they seem to make it deliberately easy for bots to harass you.

Monetizing your personal life details - happiness (for shareholders) brought to you by Facebook (who owns Instagram).

Noticed the young folks tend not to use Facebook to a large extent, but Zuck has them in the pipeline with Instagram.

I am dark on Facebook and Instagram - does NOT matter! I use WhatsApp due to the groups - so nothing is secret!
