American photo and video sharing social networking service Instagram will finally show content -images and videos- in search results instead of accounts and hashtags only.

Adam Mosseri yesterday confirmed that the Facebook-owned platform is working on a “full search result page” that will show photos and videos as results, along with tabs for accounts and hashtags.

Here’s a snippet of what the new search will look like;

Instagram is working on a new version of search that will show content results

Instagram says it’ll first concentrate on getting keyword search for the English language right, and then expand it to other languages.

Mosseri says the company currently looks at aspects like text in the search phrase, your activity, and likes on the platform, as well as the popularity of posts to provide you good search results. However, for this new version of search, the company might need to look at other factors such as when the post was uploaded.
