This profile link enables Instagram users to give others access to their profiles much easier. But not every Insta-users know how to find as well as share the profile links. Don’t worry because we got your back. In this guide, we are going to guide you through how to locate and share your Instagram profile link within the platform as well as on other social media channels in order to promote your Instagram profile and build followers more efficiently. Grab your note, and let’s get started.
How to Get Your Instagram Profile Link & Share It
Until now, Instagram has not provided users with an official feature to copy their own profile link yet. However, you can still get your Instagram link manually by combining your username and the Instagram site URL. Follow these steps:
- Step 1: Go to your Instagram Profile and check your current username. Your username is prominently showcased above your profile picture.
- Step 2: Once you get the username, you can put the Instagram site link and your username in a simple combination, and you get your profile link.
For example, your username is “abc.x”, and the Instagram link is “instagram.com/.” So, your profile link will be “instagram.com/abc.x.” You can double-check your profile link by logging on to it on the browser before sharing it with others. With this URL, you can simply share your profile on any social media platform or with anyone by sending your profile link. Or, you can share your profile link with other Instagram users via direct message as well.
There is another way – getting your own profile link on the Insta-web version. You can get your Instagram profile link by logging on to the Instagram website and logging in to your account. Afterward, you proceed to your Instagram profile and copy the URL displayed on the browser.
How to Share a User’s Instagram Profile Link via Direct
Fortunately, Instagram enables you to share other users’ profiles much more conveniently than when you share yours. If you run into an interesting Instagram user and you would like to share his or her profile with your friend, then you can just send his or her profile link away via Insta-Direct. It is a piece of cake. What you should do is follow these steps:
- Step 1: Go to the user’s Profile that you would like to share
- Step 2: Continue to tap on the three dots icon and continue to tap on Share This Profile.
- Step 3: Next, you need to search for the person or group of users you want to share this profile with.
- Step 4: Click “Send” > Done.
When sending a profile via Instagram Direct messages, it will be displayed as a preview, including the person’s name, username, and some images. Please note that if you send a profile as a message, it will show the person’s name, username, and a preview of some of their photos. Of course, other users can do this way to share your profile link via messages as well. One more thing, when you share someone’s profile links via Direct, they will not be informed about it.
