Instagram quick tip: Nametag

Did you see Instagram’s latest feature? Rolling out as of today, “Nametag” is a way for users to quickly scan someone’s Instagram account IRL so they can check it out and presumably follow them.

While Instagram is introducing it as a way for students to connect now that they’re back at school, it’s also perfect for networking events, especially if you’re a social media manager. (#PRSAICON attendees, you might want to familiarize yourself with this one before the conference kicks off this weekend!)

You can read more about this feature from Instagram, or simply tap into the menu on the top left of your profile to see Nametag and get started customizing.
