Photo-sharing network Instagram has just launched a new tagging feature called Photos of You that makes it easier to add people and things to photos.

Instagram has added the new Photos of You section to users’ profiles so they can keep track of wherever they’ve been mentioned.

Similar to the tagging system on Facebook, users will receive a notification every time they are tagged in a photo.

The photo-sharing network, which Facebook acquired a year ago, is making the new feature available on its version 3.5 app in the iOS App Store, as well as Android version 3.5 in the Google Play store.

Instagram said the feature will become visible on all profiles on 16 May, but until then users can choose to make it visible or invisible on their profiles.
