As parent company Facebook continues to face dwindling user trust, Instagram has increased its range of shopping functions – the latest in its emerging e-commerce trajectory.

The photo-sharing app has launched three new shoppable features, allowing users to better purchase items directly from inside the app.

Users can now save items in custom ‘shopping collection’ lists, competing with rival social media platform Pinterest.

Its users now also view all products a business features on their shopping posts, simply by clicking a ‘shop’ button their profile page.

In many regards, such functionality converts Instagram into a pseudo-e-commerce website on its own, with many businesses operating a standalone Instagram shop.
