The recent addition of the Photos of You feature to the Instagram app allows you to tag fellow Instagram’ers to your photos, organized in a new section in your profile, completing the “what” “where” and “who” details of your feed. We’ve been using this tagging function to add IGers with the winning #9pmhabit entries to our #PhotoPick posts and we’d like to use this photo-tagging to quickly find IGers and their awesome visual stories which @IGersManila will feature in its various social media streams.

Instagram released version 3.50 of its app for iOS and Android, introducing Photos of You, which allows you to tag people, like you do in Facebook (no surprise there) adding a new section to your profile, and you have until May 16 to explore this feature, before it gets visible to other users. What do you think of this Instagram update?
With the Philippine mid-term elections just around the corner, and the candidates putting their best foot forward, @IGersManila felt the need to help in empowering the voting public—not just by voting wisely but by making Instagram an avenue to share issues, problem areas and concerns of the Philippines.
By sharing these visual stories of the Philippines online, we aim to list down and enumerate how we, Pinoy IGers, perceive the problems of our country. This way, we are sharing to the candidates the concerns that we think should be addressed once they are elected in office.
While we keep Instagram’ing the world, let’s not forget to Instagram life - its ups and downs and how we deal with it. In full support of @KandidatoAnongPlanoMo’s #KandidatoAnongPlanoMo, this campaign season, @IGersManila launches #IGYourVote.
From 22-April-2013 until 12-May-2013, share in Instagram your visual stories of problem areas that need to be addressed in the Philippines.
Start sharing more of your thoughts and your life with your visual stories. This coming elections, let’s #IGYourVote with #KandidatoAnongPlanoMo?
