Instagram Users Can Now Include Hashtags & Profile Links Into Their Bios


Instagram has been making some strident efforts to ensure that their widely used social media app can appease a wide variety unique individuals with singular tastes. Back in December, the company allowed users to follow hashtags in order to diversify the content that appears on any given newsfeed. 

Now, Instagram is allowing users to further augment their priles by including some new, more personalized options. Priles will now be able to include both hashtags, as well as links to other user accounts in their biographies. For instance, if someone were to simply type a hashtag or "@" while in their bio's editing mode, a live link to leading to a certain page or prile will be revealed. 

This will effectively allow users to connect more with posts and priles that share similar interests or aesthetic preferences. However, for those individuals whose priles are added as a hyperlink, they will receive a notification, and will have the option to remove their link from the other person's account.
