Instagram Introduces New Way to Save Others' Photos, Though It's Been Available for Years Already

Today Instagram adds a feature that allows you to pin, or save, others posts within the app to view them later. This allows you to create a well curated section of photos you have liked or wanted to reference back to later. Something many have done for years now is simply screen captured the image and hidden it away to a folder on their camera roll.
