Announcing the Web redesign, Instagram on its blog said, “In addition, you can follow users, comment & like photos and edit your profile easily and directly from the Web. It’s a beautiful new way to share your Instagram photos!” While the redesign shows fewer images on a page than before, the images are bigger and framed with more white space.

Users can check their profiles by simply navigating to[username]. The company gives an example of Nike’s profile.

“If you don’t see your profile yet, be assured that you’ll see it in the next few days. We’re rolling out profiles to everyone on Instagram over the course of this week,” adds the company.
