Say goodbye to a single link in bio
The days of having to pick and choose which link reigns triumphant over the rest for your Instagram bio are over. In a recent update from Mark Zuckerberg, Instagram users are now able to add up to 5 links in their Instagram bio.
“You can now add up to 5 links in your Instagram bio. Probably one of the most requested features we’ve had” said Meta’s CEO today.
The links will appear in your bio, and only the first one will be fully displayed on the profile view. The others will follow with “and #X others”
Users are able to identify different icons that reflect what type of link follows, such as the YouTube logo to identify that the link is a direct clickthrough to your YouTube page.
Do you need to be a business account to add up to 5 links on Instagram?
The answer is no, you do not need to have a business or professional account. All accounts will have the ability to add multiple links, per Meta’s announcement.
Though, if you are looking to execute more brand deals and grow your Instagram page as a creator, we highly advise turning on the “professional” page setting. This way, you can see deeper analytics and metrics about your page’s performance and post growth.
How To Add Multiple Links To Your Instagram Profile
In order to add up to 5 links to your Instagram profile, follow these steps:
- Go to your Instagram profile on your mobile device
- Tap “Edit Profile”
- Tap “Links”
- Add external link
- Drag and drop them to order them in priority (the first will appear in full in your profile to other users)
Instagram Is Listening To Users
We’re excited to see that Instagram is finally listening to requests of users. In the past few months we’ve seen features like Meta Verified, top trending Reel sounds, and homepage edits come to the platform.
Many of us remember the days where the voice of the users was rarely heard on the Instagram platform, and it’s incredible to see that changing in real time.
In addition, Instagram is focused on allowing creators to find more ways to monetize their following in order to continue enhancing the creator economy. This is a step in the right direction to stay relevant in times when TikTok, YouTube Shorts, and Snapchat Spotlight have grown in large scale popularity in the short-form content space.
