Instagram has incorporated a 'map search' function that allows users to find nearby places, such as restaurants, cafés or parks, considering their location, which will first reach countries like Spain or Italy.
The function expands the capabilities of the search bar to find "interesting places", which are shown with large icons on the map, based on the location of the user and the popularity of the establishments.
You can also do a search for 'hashtag'. For example, when looking for the 'hashtag' #restant for a recommendation, the places published with that 'hashtag' are exposed on the search results page.
Instagram report that the search function on the map will be presented first in countries such as Spain, Greece, Italy and Portugal, but will be expanded to others in the future.Updated Date: 22 September 2021, 21:44
