Instagram has taken heed of the requests from many of its users and has now implemented the ability to add up to 5 links to external sources within a user's Instagram bio.
Prior to this, Instagram users were forced to use third-party tools such as Linktree in order to show other users all their third-party resources. Mark Zuckerberg called the new feature "probably one of the most requested features we've had."
Briefly about the use of multiple links on Instagram:
- With this change, you can now add up to 5 links to your Instagram bio;
- Only the first link will appear directly in the bio, while the rest are hidden in the pop-up context menu;
- Links still can't be added to regular Instagram posts and Instagram on iPad.
Starting April 18, 2023, all Instagram accounts will support the ability to add 5 bios links.
Instagram is also now testing the ability to send Reels and request video reactions from other people, which looks like another step in TikTok’s direction.
