HOW TO FIX NO LINK ICON ON INSTAGRAM STORIES 2018

Wondering why you do not have the link icon when creating an Instagram Story? Find below how to fix and solve not having the link option on an Instagram Story below by MAU. from eDigital Agency.



NO LINK BUTTON ON INSTAGRAM STORY – HOW TO FIX IT

Links on Instagram stories were originally only available to users with a huge number of followers. Over time, Instagram lowered the number to the only slightly more reasonable number of 10,000 and added the feature for verified users, too. There is an option to verified your account but it does not mean your account will be successfully verified. Instagram decides by their own (elusive) guidelines who is worthy of a verified badge and only gives it out to “some public figures, celebrities and brands.”

Many Instagram users have asked us “why can’t i add a link to my instagram story?”  If you don’t have the link button on your Instagram story is because either your Instagram account has not officially been verified or your Instagram account does not have at least 10.000 followers.

WHY DON’T I HAVE A LINK OPTION ON INSTAGRAM STORIES? – HOW TO SOLVE IT!

OPTION 1: Wait until to hit 10.000 followers

OPTION 2: if you are a celebrity or public figured, apply to get your Instagram account verified. Steps:

  • Only business accounts can apply for verification. Make sure you have a business account instead of a personal account.
  • Once you have a business account, then click on your settings icon ⚙
  • Click on “Request Verification” option
  • Fill in the user name (pre-populated by default) and Full Name fields
  • Attach a photo of your ID
  • Click send
  • Wait until Instagram notifies about your verification status (it might take a couple of weeks).
  • Once approved, you should be able to have the link icon when creating your Instagram stories.
