The Instagram site is getting a big redesign this week – see it here before it goes live

Instagram.com Website Design Update

If you love taking photos and you pride yourself on your Instagram library, likes and followers, then you’ll be happy to learn that your Instagram photo experience is about to get much better. And you might just end up getting even more likes and followers once the company rolls out a major redesign for its website.

As The Verge puts it, Instagram’s website “is about to look much nicer.” The most important change concerns pictures, which will appear much larger on the page than they do now, both on the desktop and mobile version of the website.

Profile pages will display three large images in each row, rather than five smaller ones as it does right now. Other changes include round profile pics and the removal of the grid of cover images at the top.

The new webpage layout will also be presented on hashtag pages, the blog says, and similar design changes will hit the desktop feed and mobile profiles.

Instagram’s new website will be rolled out starting today, and should be visible to everyone by the end of the week, according to the company. In the meantime, you can see exactly what it will look like in the image at the top of this post.
