Instagram App Users Can Now Edit Posts, Explore New People Tab

Sick of deleting Instagram photos to change or fix your captions? Fret no longer: Instagram announced a number of changes to its app for iPhone and Android on Monday, including the ability to edit captions.

In addition to the ability to edit photo captions, Instagram also added a new tab to the “Explore” section of its popular photo-sharing app. In addition to the existing “Photos” tab, the filter-friendly social network now includes a “People” tab, which will make “it faster to find people you want to follow,” Instagram said in a blog post.

When you open Explore, you’ll now see two tabs: Photos and People. The Photos tab has not changed. It contains the same scrolling grid of photos and videos you already know. The new People tab highlights interesting accounts for you to discover.

Instagram says that the ability to edit typos was one of its most-requested features, now appearing as an option underneath posts. The new feature also lets users change the location of their posts, which is just asking to be misused by pranksters and bad actors. Instagram is owned by Facebook Inc.
