Dimapur, Nov. 2 (EMN): Instagram users can now add links to their stories after the company added the functionality with a new Link Sticker option via an update last week.

Previously, the ability to add links to stories was only reserved for users with more than 10,000 followers. Now, with the new update, anyone can add a link to their Instagram stories with Link Stickers regardless of their follower count.

On its blog, Instagram wrote, “Today, we’re expanding the ability to add links in Stories to all accounts. Over the years, businesses, creators and change-makers have shown how sharing resources and information can inspire their communities. From organizing and educating around equity, social justice and mental well-being to showcasing new product drops to customers, link sharing is helpful in many ways — so now we’re giving access to everyone.”

The company said that the new update was “inspired by the change-makers” and it wants to support new creators by giving link sharing access to everyone on the platform.

Follow these steps to add a link to your Instagram story:

  • Capture a photo or a video.
  • Open Instagram and select Story.
  • Select content to upload to your story.
  • Tap on the sticker option. Select the link tool.
  • Enter the URL and press done. Move the link option to your desired location.
  • Post the story.
