The tech firm said that users captions and hashtags capture the 'what?' and their Photo Map answers the 'where?' but until now they were never quite able to answer the 'who?'

The new feature also includes a new 'Photos of You' section, the New York Daily News reported.

The feature is available for Instagrammers to check out, but won't be visible to everyone else until May 16.

As with Facebook, Instagram users can also change settings so that they have to approve an image before it's tagged.
