Tags are the internet equivalent of the Rubbermaid silverware caddy. They were both created to help keep like items together and neatly organized. You can tag blog posts and YouTube videos. Add a “hash” and you’re good to go on Twitter. Facebook took tagging to the next level when they created a tool to tag multiple people in a single photo and now they’ve added that same tool to Instagram.
But wait! There’s more! Starting today, Instagram users will find a whole new section in the app called “Photos of You.” That’s right, a whole gallery of photos devoted to you, you, you. Which is funny seeing as how I just wrote a post about how on social media people prefer “informers” over “meformers.” Guess that doesn’t apply to photo sharing.
