Aussie website shows Current live picture stream of  cities

This new Australian website uses Instagram photos to create a real-time fly-on-the-wall look at nine major cities across the globe , with more cities to come soon.

The website when loaded in your browser keeps updating new photos to the page  to give you a live  and current view on what’s going on in any particular city  at that part of time. So how it works is , for example  as users upload a pic say to Instagram or facebook  this website will pick it up and stream  it to the  website as a live upload.

More than 450,000 users have already logged on to This is Now, launched two weeks ago, to view more than 1 million photos posted by tech savvy happy snappers around the world.
