Popular Notification

I think it would be great if we could receive a notification if one of our photos hits the popular page. Either a notification in News, a badge somewhere by (but not obstructing) the photo on our profile, opt-in email notifications. It's always exciting to see a photo you took on the popular page, but I don't always have time to spare (or service, thanks AT&T) in order to refresh a ton.

And also how about a comment from Instagram under the photo, that it reached Popular page?

Oh, that would be so great :) What if you're not connected to the internet when you make it to the popular page? Sure, you can constantly check http://instagre.at/, but it would be nice to have an official message from IG in your news feed :)

I totally agree... but also I got one on the popular page but wasn't able to check it for a couple of hours to actually see it on the popular feed.... how can I go back to see it there? Really disappointing

If you want to see what photos you got on the popular page, go here http://populagram.appspot.com/ and search your user name. You'll get a list with all your photos that have made it to the popular page. Web.stagram.com also started adding a "POP!" tag to all the photos that become popular (near the number of comments).
You can see your photo on the popular feed on IG for a while only (close to the time you get the notification). After a few hours, I don't think you'll find it there, because others will take it's place. But look on http://populagram.appspot.com/ and you'll also see all the popular photos in the order they made it to the special page. Hope it helps.

That is great! Thanks for populagram link I didn't know that! Can't see any new tag on Webstagram, but even the fact, that IG started marking of popular pics and API allows to read them (as populagram does) means things getting forward :) Maybe some of next IG updates will show this mark on pictures right in app, which would be best :)

@Jiri Siftar Yes, that would be cool :) On web.stagram.com the "POP!" appears right under the photo, next to the number of comments that photo has. You can find the info here - http://web.stagram.com/about/:

"History:
2011-04-18/ : Now you can check TOP FILTERS in POPULAR PHOTOS.
2011-04-13/ : Now displaying POP! if the photo has been POP. started to record since 2011-04-12."

I've seen POP! tag on actually popular pics in my feed, but can't see that tag on my today's popular pic in my feed: http://web.stagram.com/n/jeera/ Maybe it's still not working properly or on every section, but I'm glad it's moving forward :)

@Jiri Siftar Yes, that's strange. Maybe tomorrow you'll see it. I didn't happen to me before...
