Facebook Meta's Instagram recently released a new tool in Instagram Story that can be used by every user, which is the Instagram Story Sticker Links.

Simples steps are written below to help guide Instagram users on how to add links on Instagram Story with the help lf the new feature.

This Instagram Story sticker links is a tool to help users incorporate hyperlinks to websites or articles in their Stories.

Instead of using the Swipe Up function, users can add a link directly to an Instagram Story along with photographs and videos.

Users don't have to enter down incomplete URL text any longer.

The "Links" sticker has one limitation: you can only use one per Story.

Instagram Story

All accounts now have the option to post links to their Instagram Stories.

Businesses, innovators, and change-makers have demonstrated how sharing resources and knowledge can motivate communities over the years.

Link sharing is useful in many ways, from organizing and educating around fairness, social justice, and mental well-being to promoting new merchandise drops to consumers.

Now, the platform is making it available to everybody.

Instagram Story Sticker Link

Since the first implemented Stories links, Instagram only allowed verified accounts or accounts with a particular number of followers to use the feature.

According to Instagram, the rest of the community has told them that they, too, want to share important information with their friends and family.

With that, despite the account size, users now have a platform to share whatever they're about in Instagram Stories, from cooking to volunteering or shopping.

Through the Instagram Story links, the platform has offered new opportunities for creators and businesses to reach more fans, engage their communities, and expand their reach, and Instagram hopes to provide them with even more help in the form of connections.

Instagram Story Viewer and Users

New accounts and accounts that consistently share things like hate speech and disinformation, or anything that violates the platform's Community Guidelines, will not be able to use the Link sticker.

This is part of the company's ongoing efforts to limit harmful content on Instagram.

Users, especially new ones, are advised to visit Instagram's Community Guidelines to learn more about their rules.
