Instagram has been rolling out a handful of new features throughout the past months, ranging from showing your activity status to adding a GIF option to the Stories function. Now, the social media platform has added yet another attribute – hashtags for your Instagram bio.
Users are now able to include hashtags on their main pages, as well as profile links. Adding “#” and/or “@” will now be a live link leading to the page or profile, just like in a regular post. The feature is set to empower users to connect fully with the tags they use, and comes as a second hashtag push from Instagram after adding the option to follow a hashtag feature late last year. You can also tag another user, but note that the other party will receive a notification with the option of removing the link from the other person’s account.
