Social media has emerged as a powerful tool in connecting people and spreading messages across the world. It has given the people the gift of “anywhere, anything and anyone”. It means that any person can create anything from any corner of the world and social media would do all the needful.

While Facebook has been doing the same for several years Instagram has got its own charm and effectiveness. Influencers and Brands are able to display their content and spread brand awareness through photos and videos better. Its specialized UI has hyped the concept of social media influencers because of the popularity, love and obviously money an influencer gets. Wondering if you too could become a social media influencer? Sure you can.

Now that we are on about praising the features of instagram, the added benefit it serves along with its specialized UI is it’s easy to learn and practice features. Instagram is the most popular media among youngsters because it has intertwined itself with the showbiz and who does not like limelights!
One such feature update on instagram has added to the love of the platform and that is adding links on the story. It was not available earlier and was also despised for the same but now users can simply add a link on their story with the help of the ‘link sticker‘.
