Instagram Chrome Extension

One of the best Instagram extensions made for Chrome is “Instagram for Chrome”.

I have tested different extensions and platforms for a few months now trying to find an easy way to keep up on my Instagram with my computer feed while I spend time on my computer.

Instagram for Chrome created by 64px.com has been my favorite by far.

  • You can go to the Chrome Web Store and type into the search “Instagram for Chrome” .

  • You will need to sign into your Google account install the extension.
  • Click the blue “Add to Chrome” button.

  • Then you will need to click “Add” again when the conformation box comes up.
  • Once the Extension has loaded, a small Instagram button will appear to the right of Chromes address bar.  

You will have to click on the Instagram logo and it will ask you to log in to your Insagram account.

NOTE: To check you notifications under “…” then “News” you will need to log in with your Instagram information again before it can retrieve your info.

Have Fun!

Twitter Mentions as Comments

“Twitter Mentions as Comments scours Twitter for people talking about your site & silently inserts their Tweets alongside your existing comments.”

I have written about this plugin before in a previous, but I find this plugin so helpful and unique that I want to have it in this Review also.

Here is a link to an older post I wrote with step by step instructions on how to set this plugin up.

This plug searches twitter for tweets with a link to your blog or blog post and turns the tweet into a comment on the post they linked to.
