Instagram: how to put link in bio for hashtags and other profiles

Instagram now allows users to add hashtags and mark other profiles in their biographies. The feature, which is available on the iPhone app (iOS) and Android phones, lets you add the links in the profile as they do in regular posts. It is possible to include several hashtags and links in the bio as long as the limit of 150 characters is respected.

The feature is ideal for people who wish to link their profile with profiles of friends or with words in the network of photos in order to gain more followers. For commercial accounts, the links may help in publicizing public persons or partner brands. Check out the following tutorial on how to use hashtags and mark other profiles in your Instagram biography.
