Instagram lets users edit their profiles where they can provide a brief description about themselves, who they are, what they do and so on. Now it looks like profiles on Instagram are about to get more interactive as Instagram has rolled out a new feature that lets users add hashtags and profile links.
According to Instagram, "With hashtag and profile links in your bio, you can express yourself and your interests right in your profile. Whether you’re a #guitarlover, into #pencilsketching or have a #makeuptutorial account, now you can link to any hashtag or profile you want." This basically means you can add hashtags that you might feel passionate about, like if you’re a #gymjunkie or a #foodie, or if you’re organising an event, you can include a hashtag created specifically for said event that makes it easier for users to follow what’s going on.
As for profile links, there are some users who have multiple Instagram profiles. One could be about their business and other for personal use, so if you have a personal account and want to share your business profile, you can now directly link to that account via your Instagram bio. All these links will be clickable so it is not as if users have to type it in manually.
