Instagram is a widely popular social media platform with a user base of over 2.5 billion worldwide. The parent company, Meta, is constantly introducing new features and updates to enhance the user experience. The latest rumored addition to Instagram’s toolkit is a profile sharing feature for Stories.
According to leaker and app developer Alessandro Paluzzi, Instagram is in the process of developing a new feature that will allow users to share someone else’s profile directly in a Story. This feature will work similarly to the existing “Add to Story” function but with a focus on promoting another user’s profile. It will provide a simple way for Instagram users to direct their followers’ attention to other profiles, potentially increasing visibility and follower count.
The addition of a “View Profile” button in the story will invite viewers to visit the mentioned profile, making it easier to boost a profile’s visibility. This new feature opens up new avenues for discovery, engagement, and brand exposure, particularly beneficial for creators and businesses.
While the exact release date of this feature is still unknown, it is expected to be available to all Instagram users in early 2024. Stay tuned for updates on this exciting addition to Instagram’s functionality.
