Last summer, Instagram made some big changes to its search functionality including the addition of Places Search and some other new discovery avenues. It also expanded search from mobile to desktop.

They're tinkering around with search once again. Photographer Anthony Quintano (via TheNextWeb) noticed that the app is now showing some Facebook-like functionality, showing who follows you back in search results:

The functionality isn't working for all users. It could just be a limited test, but it's also possible that it will roll out to more users over time.
