Instagram says 'tag, you're it'

The world's most popular meal-blogging application has finally included a 'tagging' feature.

On Thursday Instagram introduced a new feature dubbed 'Photos of You', allowing users to tag their friends, or things, like the sandwich they're having for lunch.

Facebook purchased Instagram last year for $1 billion, so it's unsurprising that the tagging feature would finally make its across. Is poking next?

Anyway when users go to upload a photo to Instagram they can now "add the people and things in the photo as easily as you add a location and hashtags," according to Instagram.

When you have been tagged by a friend or someone else you'll receive via a notification,  and the photo will appear in your new 'Photos of You' section.

And also like Facebook you can change the app's settings to make sure you approve any photos that will appear on your profile.

The new 'Photos of You' feature is available through an update from Apple's App Store and Google Play.

Meanwhile almost half of Instagram's users use no filter at all according to figures released last month.

If I could use a filter to remove all gratuitous food photos from my feed, I'd be the first in line.
