You Can Soon Share Links On Your Instagram Stories With Its New Sticker Update
It’s always been a hassle to find ways to link things to your Instagram posts and stories, you’d either need to have over 10,000 followers or be a business account on Instagram for the “swipe up” feature. Fortunately, Instagram teased a possible update on a new sticker “Links” that could allow users to add links to their stories!
Unlike the existing “swipe up” feature, it will come in the form of a sticker. Users will just have to tap on the sticker with the link symbol and visit the links of their choice! An existing problem for the swipe up feature is a missing reply option to stories, but this won’t be a problem for this new “Links” feature.
