Each social network makes it clear how to put a link in its biography on its platform, except Instagram.
Twitter allows you to tag other handles in your biography. LinkedIn gives you the possibility to link to the official page of your employer. Facebook allows you to tag a number of different businesses, pages of interest and people in your “About” section, so you can let them know who you work for, what brands you like, your alma mater, the status of your relationship, etc.
What about Instagram?
Until recently, Instagram did not give you much space to tag your profile with hashtags and profile identifiers; I could only link their respective pages with legends from the photos.
The websites were the only types of links he could put in his biography (hence the common phrase “link in bio” by Instagram users who promoted something).
But Instagram recently gave us two new features: linkable profiles and hashtags, directly in his biography. Now you can add them together with the link to your website.
How to add a link to your Instagram biography
- Open your Instagram mobile app.
- Visit your profile by touching the person’s icon in the lower right.
- Touch “Edit profile” at the top of the screen.
- Write a custom description in 150 characters or less.
- Add a short link to your website in the form of yourdomain.com.
- Add links to other profiles by touching “@” followed by the profile identifier.
- Add hashtags by touching “#” followed by the tag with which it is associated.
- Touch “Done” to save your biography.
Note: The instructions above apply to the latest version of Instagram – 37.0 on iOS. You can also edit your biography on the Instagram website by navigating to your profile and clicking on “Edit profile” next to your name.
On the screen to the left, you can then see how Instagram suggests popular hashtags while editing the biological text field, just as you would when you add a hashtag to the title of an image. In the screen on the right, you will see the profile of a person using hashtags, profile links and websites in their biography.
Things have changed lately on Instagram, and now you have options to link to other pages that you identify with just below your Instagram profile photo. But keep in mind that users who do not want their profile to be tagged in the biography of others may choose to remove the tag themselves.
The best thing is to reserve this space for the accounts that you know would be in accordance with the association you are making.
