Add a Link to Your Instagram Story!

You can now add a link to your Instagram Stories if you have a business account with 10,000 or more followers. Here’s how you do it:

🔸capture your video or still picture.
🔸once that’s complete, at the top, you’ll see the link 🔗 icon
🔸tap it and include the link of your choice but make it count. Don’t over use it.

**Instagram is rolling out the capability in batches so if you haven’t seen it yet, you will see it soon as long as you have a business account of 10,000 or more followers.

Bonus tip: when you’re typing words on to your story, you can tag someone like you would in a post.

Instagram LIVE Update!

Instagram now has a LIVE streaming feature. Since its owned by Facebook, you can continue to expect these cool features. When initially launched, Instagram LIVE videos disappeared as soon as the LIVE stream ended. Well, there’s good news!

Instagram is now giving you the option to post it to Instagram Stories (the top bar of circle pics) for 24 hours. You’ll see that option after you hit the end live button. When looking at your Instagram Stories, you’ll know it’s a live video posted when you see the play button/arrow.

There are over 200 million daily users of Instagram stories, so if you have not been using that feature, you’re missing out on a prime opportunity to connect with your followers.
