How to Add a Link to Your Instagram Bio

LinkedIn gives you the ability to link yourself to your employer's official page. What about Instagram? Until recently, Instagram didn't give you a ton of space to brand your profile with hashtags and profile handles -- you could only link to their respective pages in photo captions. Websites were the only types of links you could put in your bio (hence the common phrase "link in bio" by Instagram users who were promoting something). Tap "Edit Profile" at the top of the screen. Write a custom description in 150 characters or less. Add links to other profiles by tapping "@" followed by the profile's handle. Add hashtags by tapping "#" followed by the hashtag you associate with. You can also edit your bio on Instagram's website by navigating to your profile and clicking "Edit Profile" next to your name. On the screen to the right, you'll see the profile of a person who uses hashtags, profile links, and websites in her bio.
