Instagram wants to make finding nearby businesses easier


Instagram wants to make finding nearby businesses easier

As part of Instagram's latest update, users can now search for local businesses or attractions by adding a searchable map, which Mark Zuckerberg shared in an Instagram Story.

You can view posts about a specific place or only certain types of businesses using the map.

Getting to the map depends on how someone tags a place - if they tag a place, you can tap on the tag and hit 'see location' to see the location. Move around the map to see what's nearby and you'll be able to search the area.

Searching for places (including entire cities) is also possible from the Explore tab. A place search result will take you to the place's map if you tap it.

After searching an area, you can narrow down the results by using filters to see only restaurants, bars, parks, and other types of places.

You can also save locations for later use. Saved places can be accessed by going to your profile, tapping the hamburger menu in the top right, and selecting Saved.

Facebook began testing the updated map last year in certain countries, but it has now been made available worldwide, according to Zuckerberg's story on Tuesday.

Several e-commerce features have been added to Instagram's app in recent months, and the map feature feels like another step toward making the platform more accessible for businesses.

With Facebook already suggesting certain types of businesses on its places pages and Meta sharing many features between its platforms, it shouldn't surprise us to see a similar map feature appear in other Meta apps in the near future.
