Instagram competes with services like Linktree and others by allowing till 5 "links in bio"

Instagram is introducing the functionality that will allow users to post up to five links to their user profiles in order to compete with Linktree, Beacons, and many other "link in bio" solution providers, the company announced on Tuesday. These links may direct viewers to extra material such as online businesses promoting their goods, significant concerns, or even their social media profiles on competing networks.

This function is frequently requested by producers, which also serves as an illustration of how Instagram's failure to accommodate community demands has prompted the creation of competitive products. Platform restrictions were the reason to restrict from publishing multiple links to other websites, like in Instagram and other social networks, out of concern that they would be assisting in directing users to material outside of their own apps, Linktree and comparable services were developed. This choice was not just made by Instagram. TikTok now only permits users with corporate accounts to put clickable links in their bios, making it more challenging for normal users and artists to direct fans and followers to other websites.

Actually, Instagram clearly mentioned "all accounts," including corporate and creator accounts, will have the ability to post a variety of links to a profile. To use the function, users should tap "Edit profile," "Links," and then "Add external link." Users can then drag and drop the links into the proper order. Also, users of Instagram have the option to link directly to their Facebook page utilizing a special option that is located beneath the option to add several connections to other websites. This link looks more professional because it features a rounded Facebook logo and the phrase "Facebook profile."

Users are free to connect to any URL until it complies with Meta's Community Guidelines and Conditions of Service. Links are checked to make sure they don't contain any harmful information. It's not meant to prevent Linktree or other services from including links in their profiles.
