Instagram Update – All you Need to Know…

Instagram have just released a brand new update to their app which includes two new features: more filters and the ability to incorporate emojis in your #.

For the first time since December, Instagram have been generous and given us 3 brand new filters to play with…

Their names are Juno, Reyes and Lark.

For those who are interested, Instagram’s blog says Juno makes warm tones warmer and whites more sparkling – the whole effect is quite vibrant. As for Lark, it is more effective on landscapes, muting reds and enhancing greens and blues. Finally, Reyes is your typical vintage filter giving your portraits a nice dusty look, with a slight green hue.

However, the slightly more interesting development in this Instagram update is definitely the introduction of emojis in hashtags.

You can put your favourite emoji in a hashtag, then see who else is doing the same. It’s the sort of thing that was always going to happen. We have all tried to #:) but it never really had the effect we wanted it to. But now a recognisable emoji will come up, not just punctuation. 


Instagram is giving its users never-ending ways to express themselves and it is doing a great job of enhancing the look of the app. Now, Instagram is not just a picture version of Twitter, it has its own take on hashtags. I for one can’t wait to get hashtagging with my 3 favourite emojis,  the dancing girls, the hearts eyes cat and the smiling pile of poop!
