In addition, you can follow users, comment & like photos and edit your profile easily and directly from the web.”

The pages look a lot like a social network profile pages, dominated by images. You can see Mycookingdiary‘s page pictured left. Companies are also taking advantage of the new feature. Check out Nike’s page here.¬†
