So you’ve taken pretty photos and had shared it in your Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr etc. But it’s not getting a lot of ‘likes’ so thanks to WebStagram your photos available to non-instagram users too, there’s also an advantage for bloggers to connect with their readers via the webstagram widget! I find that this is by far the best Instagram widget as compared to one or two previous ones which wasn’t as good as this.
I’ve added my Instagram photos at my sidebar as you can see. So say, by clicking on Heart Shape box picture from it is directed to the photo post in webstagram where users just need to sign up an account or if your already an Instagram user just log in and ‘like / comment’ on the photo.
Example: Heart Shape box Photo (link)
This function is great because, you can share awesome Instagram photos with non-instagram users or people who have not follow you yet as well increase in likes for your photos.
My Instagram widget layout is 2 x 3, you can choose the amount of photos to display.
