Instagram is shutting down Photo Map one of its coolest feature

instagram-photo-map-geoawesomenessInstagram is shutting down Photo Map – one of its coolest features. “Photo Map was not widely used, so we’ve decided to remove the feature and focus on other priorities,” the company said in a statement.

Photo Map was one of the tabs in your Instagram app that allowed you to view the locations where you’ve taken your photos. It’s one the features that you don’t use too often but you start appreciating it once its gone.

The location information will not be totally removed from the app. Photos will remain geotagged and you will still be able to see location tags on individual posts. Nonetheless taking away the map, takes away all the fun.

Instagram we officially let you know that we don’t like the change.
