Look Around, (removed on GooglePlay) is a new App on google play for android devices that allows you to see all photos shared on Instagram within a 5 kilometer radius of where you’re standing. Weird huh?
The app only launched earlier today (13th April) but has already been downloaded over one thousand times by keen users wanting to see what’s being posted around them on the ever increasingly popular Instagram social network.
The developer of the app, Andrea Bosini has said that the purpose of the app is to “find that un-missable party” or find an awesome nearby restaurant for example, but you can bet this will be used by nosy neighbors to get a taste of what people around them are up to. But this isnt a problem right? or else why would you be posting it to social media in the first place .
The description of the app is as follows ” Login with your Instagram account, set the distance of the photos you want to see and that’s it: you will find on your screen all the photos posted around you!”
Many people may in fact find this app unsettling, especially parent of children who use Instagram. Remember to use your privacy settings folks if you find this new app unsettling! 🙂
