SnapQuest Allows Users to See Instagram Shares Around the World

Sure to creep out more than a few privacy-concerned Instagram users, SnapQuest is a newly launched project that allows users to see photos from around the world.

Constantly updating in real time, Snapquest relies on open privacy settings in order to operate. When a user enters the site, they must choose a location they'd like to view and from there can choose a particular 'pin' on a map for a more accurate picture of a given place. The feed then uploads random photos from users in the area. Providing a huge array of photos from a wide audience, this is an addicting although guilty pleasure.

More than likely to conjure up a fair bit of controversy, this is a slightly violating but intriguing site sure to change the way users understand Instagram.
