Instagram is testing the ability to pin messages to a profile

Instagram is exploring a new feature that will allow users to pin messages to the top of their profile grid if it works as expected.

The feature is still in testing and should only be available to selected users.


Developed by TechCrunch, Instagram is exploring a new feature that allows users to pin messages to the top of their profile grid. Those selected by the platform will find the feature in the "Place in Profile" option in the three dots in the upper right corner of the publication.

We're testing a new feature that will allow people to post to their profile.

A Meta spokesman told TechCrunch.

Currently, users have highlights available that allow them to post stories to their profile. However, this new feature tested on Instagram allows you to highlight specific publications that are published at the top of the profile grid.

According to Digital Trends, the tests will come several months after engineer Alessandro Paluzzi revealed that Instagram was developing a similar idea.

While it may benefit many users who use the platform professionally, the functionality is still in the testing phase, so it may take some time or no release at all.

In addition to this, Instagram is also testing a new feature that will make it easier for users to find and support social causes through hashtags.
