Instagram is expanding its search feature by adding keyword search.

On Tuesday, Instagram mentioned that the search is limited to general interest topics and keywords that are within Instagram's community guidelines. Earlier in this week, Facebook announced two big changes in the form of a Reels tab and a Shop tab.

The Reels tab will make it easier for people to discover short, fun videos from creators all over the world while the shop tab will give them a better way to connect with brands and discover products.
