• Post to Foodspotting using Instagram!

    If you follow any of the Foodspotting team on Twitter, you'll know that we're all fans of Instagram - so it's with a lot of excitement that we're announcing that you can now connect your Foodspotting account to Instagram.

    Starting today, you can post food photos directly to Foodspotting through your Instagram account. If you follow these steps, we'll instantly import your photos to Foodspotting:

    1. Connect your account via Foodspotting Settings.
    2. Fill in the What or Caption field on Instagram with the dish name. (Resist urge to add commentary here (or other tags); please comment on your own Instagram post instead!)
    3. In the What/ field be sure to include the tag #fs, #food or #foodspotting.
    4. Fill in the Where field with the place name.

    P.S. Don't forget that filters are optional. Retro food doesn't always look better. ;-)

    P.P.S. Also, if you don't include the place or we don't have a matching place on Foodspotting, it may not post.

    We're thrilled to be one of the first companies to use Instagram's new real-time API, which makes the connection between your two accounts possible.

    Huge kudos to our awesome website guru Ben for working hard and fast on this with the Instagram team. Go on and give it a whirl - feedback is always welcome!

      This is huge. It is tectonic.

      Instagram is going to overtake FourSquare and Gowalla combined. Considering it is a photo app, that is good news for FoodSpotting. Twitter --> FourSquare --> FoodSpotting can feel like a stretch. Twitter --> Instagram --> FoodSpotting feels less like a stretch.

      Congrats on getting Instagram integration in one direction Instagram -> Foodspotting, but how about in the other direction? I posted this idea for feedback and discussion on Get Satisfaction http://getsatisfaction.com/foodspotting/topics/adding_post_to_instagram_support

      Right now the Instagram API doesn't support posting from other services. Maybe in the future?

      Good Idea!! I really like Foodspotting and Instagram.

      Is any other plan to integrate with other services, like picplz?

      This is awesome. Great job Foodspotting. Huge fan.

      Look forward to when this works in reverse (by adding an #instagram tag). I would never desire to title an IG photo with something like the dish name (and would likely unfollow anyone that took this completely uncreative action).
