In India, the App Store listing for Instagram shows Rs 89 monthly charges for “Instagram Subscriptions”, which as first spotted by Techcrunch, wasn’t there before. Earlier, the App Store listing for Instagram only included badges as in-app purchases starting at Rs 89 to Rs 449.

The feature is expected to be similar to Twitter Blue, meaning followers of influencers and creators will get access to exclusive content by getting subscriptions.

Monetization on Instagram

After 9 years, now you’ll be able to see Instagram link previews on Twitter.

Until now, you could only see the URL on Twitter. Now, on sharing an Instagram link on Twitter, you’ll see a card with a preview of that post. The feature is rolling out on Android, iOS, and the web.

TikTok was the most downloaded non-gaming app in October 2021 across the World.

Do you always check lightning and the Internet before IG Live?

IG heard you and launched LIVE PRACTICE MODE, which will allow your guests to join before the scheduled time so you can check things before sessions.

Get notified about Outages!

Yes, IG is now testing in-app notifications so you can get notified about any outages and violations you make if any!

You probably heard this by now:

  1. INSTAGRAM will make the LINK in stories feature available by anyone.
  2. Before, it was just for users with over 10k followers.

But Creators may overuse this feature.

With such a strong new tool, Instagram can become a place where users just promote, instead of mainly creating and inspiring.

And Nobody wants that.

80/20 Rule

Try to add links to your stories one every four /five times. This adds a degree of exclusivity to your promotions. What do you think? * So, you see this feature already??
