Instagram is the place to be these days and, as someone once said, sharing is caring. It could be your wedding or something much more mundane, but without followers, it’s pointless. Here’s how to make it easy for people to follow you.
The people who work at Instagram know that the key to a great Instagram profile is to make sure it’s easy for people to follow you. All the best photos in the world won’t do you any good if nobody knows that they exist, so sharing your Instagram profile is vital. Until recently, that meant making people aware of your profile name, which depending on how savvy you were when you set it up, might be unwieldy or just plain bad. Towards the end of 2018, Instagram launched the Nametag, and it changed the game completely.
You might not know it yet, but your Instagram profile has a Nametag, and if you don’t like it, you can customize it, too. The idea is that you share your Nametag—essentially a QR code in picture form—and then other people plug that into Instagram to access your profile before they, hopefully, follow you.
So now that we’re all familiar with what a Nametag is, how do you share yours and get those sweet, sweet followers?
How to Share Your Instagram Nametag
As you might expect, the place to start is the Instagram app. Open the app and tap the “Profile” button.
Next, tap the hamburger button in the top right corner to expand the sidebar.
