Today Instagram announced that users can now post images in portrait or landscape orientation.  There are many apps available that allow users to post photos that wouldn’t otherwise fit in the notorious Instagram square, but this is a nice update I think many Instagramers will be pleased with.  They stated that they wanted the user’s “visual story” to be first priority when it comes to sharing with family and friends; so no more sacrificing photos for the sake of fitting inside a square!  They also shared that in fact, 1 in 5 photos or videos that are posted are not in the square format so they felt that it was important enough to make a change.  Some people aren’t really fazed by this update and some are very excited, I think it’s a great update and that users will be very happy now that they can post a photo in portrait or landscape.
