Instagram Users Use Instagram To Tell Instagram They're Not Happy

Posted: Updated:

Instagram 3.0, the third version of the popular photo-sharing app, was released Thursday to much fanfare... and griping.

Why's that? Well, the main new feature added to the app as it make its rocket-ship flight past 50 million users is called Photo Map. It's a new interface that displays where Instagram'd photos were taken on a map using geolocation data. As CEO Kevin Systrom told The Huffington Post, "the vision is to make geo-data more prevalent and have users produce more of this data."

Despite the option to opt out of having photo locations tracked, some users are irked by the thought of Instagram knowing their movements. Others, of course, don't mind and are happy to be followed if their photos are going to be organized nicely. Still more are just plain confused by the update.

Below we've culled reactions to Instagram's Photo Map, posted on Instagram, of course. What do you think of the new feature? Let us know in the comments or @HuffPostTech.
