How to add links to Instagram Stories

Approved accounts on Instagram over the past few years have the ability to add links to Instagram Stories that can be accessed with a simple scroll. This is a useful feature not only for influencers, but also for anyone who wants to share content online through stories without directing businesses, ads and people to the link in the Instagram bio, which is a privilege that many are disappointed with.

But with the introduction of Link Stickers on Instagram Stories, everything has changed.

As part of ongoing updates and features reaching the platform, Instagram has introduced the Link Sticker feature to users around the world.

Instead of scrolling up as in the old system, the links in Instagram Stories will look like a screen sticker that viewers can touch to access – perhaps more transparent about what you’re clicking on.
