Ladies and gents, be prepared to lose many more hours of valuable time in front of your computer screen.  

Normally reserved for iPhone and Android phone users, popular photo sharing app Instagram is making its leap to the web realm.

Instagram has announced its newest venture today, launching a web companion for users of its photo-sharing and filtering app.

As reported by Mashable:

The most striking thing about the new web profiles, which are being gradually rolled out to users, is its resemblance to Facebook Timeline. An animated, rotating mosaic of Instagram photos occupies about the same amount of space as Facebook Timeline’s Cover photo; a small profile image, short bio and follower stats are situated just beneath. Photo thumbnails are organized in reverse-chronological order further down the page; click on one, and it’ll appear at full size alongside likes and comments.

Instagram is cashing out in their acquisition by Facebook. You can see if your profile is up by typing in instagram.com/username. For example, check out instagram.com/nike.  

Photo stalking just became that much easier.
