SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Picture sharing website Instagram on Monday began rolling out online profiles that let people showcase themselves and photos they've taken with the Facebook-owned smartphone application.

"Instagram web profiles are a beautiful new way to view and share Instagram on the web," said a message at the company's website.

"Your web profile features your photos along with your profile photo and bio, giving others a look at the content you share on Instagram."
