Instagram is moving to kill off one of its oldest features.
Users are reporting no longer having access to photo maps, the part of Instagram where users are able to see their photos sorted by where they were taken.
In a statement issued to Mashable, the Facebook-owned company confirmed the move, saying, “Photo Map was not widely used, so we’ve decided to remove the feature and focus on other priorities.”
As Mashable notes, the company’s “other priorities” likely include its efforts to emulate and surpass competitor Snapchat. Instagram recently launched the aptly named Stories feature, which, like its Snapchat namesake, allows users to compile multiple several second long videos into a larger narrative to share with other users. Since launch, the feature has become quite popular, with more than 100-million users launching the app daily to view and create Stories.
Visit someone else’s profile and the tab previously associated with the feature is nowhere to be found. Users can still see their own photos map, however — though that, too, is expected to change.
That said, geotags are not going anywhere. Users will still be able to add them to their photos, and tapping on a tag while looking at a photo will still surface other photos taken at that location.
