It would be nice to post instagram photos to Facebook instead of linking them, in that way, people could be tagged.

Agree! When i want to revisit the photos on later on, i could easily find it in my facebook too. I can tag my friends in it and have all the photos at 1 spot for scrolling.

that would make it very social

I dig it. Back when I used Brightkite for sort of my "mobile photo-ing", it dumped photos into a separate "Brightkite" album on Facebook. That way it shows up in photo feeds, is easily accessible (and archiveable!) by me, and so on.

It gets pretty awesome fast. I estimate this feature alone would be worth $6M in additional VC investment.

I'm also not good with numbers, so your mileage may vary.

I don't understand why this isn't an option. I don't use this as much because of this - I don't liek spammign my feed with external links...

I would add that the incessant Instagram ad copy (“_____ is using Instagram - a fun & blah blah blah—45 words!) that appears *every* time with the link in Facebook is obnoxious. A brief mention of the provenance should suffice; it's easy enough for the curious to find out more.

I, too, wish they would just send the photo to facebook instead of linking. I actually DON'T post to facebook many times because they use the link method.

I would post from Instagram to Facebook more if I the pics would send as a photo instead of a link. It's no fun to just have it show up in my feed. I can't tag friends, and I can't see them later.

I agree with all here! How about posting to an "Instagram" album? Would be a whole lot better than just a link post and a lot easier than having to upload the saved photo separately...

IMO this would really add to Instagram's usability and usage. When I told my wife about INstagram, she liked it, but wanted the photos actually posted in her FB and wanted to be able to tag. Any update from Instagram on this idea? I don't see anyone from Instagram in the thread.

@Scott, exact same thing happened to me buddy. Why would they not roll this out in beta. It makes no sense not to be able to tag a photo in Facebook :-(

Deleting instagram, which I love, because of this. It's taken too long to implement this basic feature. I'll be using Hipstamatic exclusively from now on.
