Have you updated your profile recently? If not, head over to check out the newest updates that have been officially publicly rolled out over the last few days. You can now add hashtags (#) or @ in your bio! How cool is that?! Once added, it becomes “live links” that lead to other (related) hashtags and/ or profiles.
Back in December… Instagram introduced the ability to follow hashtags, giving us a new world of opportunity. This gave us the option to stay connected with interests, hobbies, communities, etc.
Now, by adding hashtags and links to your bio, you can express yourself and your interests right in your profile! Whether you’re a #mom, or into #painting, or a #makeuplover , you can now link to ANY hashtag or profile you want!
To add a hashtag or profile link in your bio, just tap on ‘Edit Profile’ and go to the bio section. When you type a # or @, you will see a list of recommended hashtags and accounts. Once you select the hashtags and accounts you want, they will automatically be linked to/ in your bio.
When you mention someone else’s profile in your bio (which I have not done above), they will receive a notification and respectfully have the option to approve or not. Basically, they will have the ability to quickly and easily remove the link to their profile.
Below is an updated version of my Instagram page, using my brand #momonamission as a linked hashtag. As you can see, it’s blue (instead of black). This makes it a clickable hashtag! Which means, when I press it, I instantly see other related posts and profiles, which easily allows me to connect with others like minded individuals.

The stats above are incredible to say the least! Instagram is definitely stepping up its game and proving to be competitive in the social media world of platforms. So many changes have happened in the last few months, and I’m certain, more more amazing changes and updates will continue to happen.
Be sure to stay in the loop with all Instagram news and updates on their Press Release page.
I hope you enjoyed and found value from this. If so, feel free to drop a comment and share it with your friends and family!
