You'll see "trending places," too.


Instagram will show you top locations based on how many people are tagging it and its proximity to you. Users from New York and San Francisco won't see the same trending places.

Instagram will also curate collections of photo-worthy locales.


"Glimmering Islands," "Towering Rocks," and "Ancient Ruins" are just a few of the first collections curated by an editorial team and presented exclusively on the Instagram app. In these collections, you'll see a few of the chosen locations, plus the top images taken in that place.

By showing you new and interesting destinations, is Instagram poised to become the next best travel app?
