Instagram Nametag is often claimed as a stolen feature that bore a huge resemblance with Snapchat’s Snapcodes.
Scaling down the work of users to type in long usernames in the search bar, Instagram Nametags were wholeheartedly welcomed by users all around the world.
All YOU have to do is scan the ‘Nametag’ within the main app and you will be brought to a screen where YOU can either view or follow a particular profile.
Have you tried using them yet?
I completely understand your present situation as I have been in your shoes back a while.
And I bet after reading this article you would definitely want to use them.
Getting used to these updates and feature is not as easy as it looks, especially if you have a personal account.
So I thought why not shed some light on this topic and let you know more about using Instagram Nametags and how to customize them to your favour-
What are Instagram Nametags???
Instagram Nametag is a unique code assigned to a -particular user that other users can scan within the main app to view or follow a specific profile.
Voiding the typical way of typing in usernames in the search bar, Instagram Nametags were designed with the aim to take people to your profile where other Instagrammers could take one of the desired actions.
During the initial days of Instagram, it was quite tough for influencers to make people follow you just by telling them your username, especially if it was a long one.
I would say it was rather a challenge for people to spell the username correctly in the search bar.
And the situation even worsened if a username consisted of underscores, dots, abbreviations as people sometimes spelled double underscore (__) where they should have used three underscores (___). The ‘dot’ that was supposed to be after single underscore was spelled after two underscores i.e. ‘xyz__.yz’ instead of ‘xyz_.yz’.
I know it’s hard to understand all this…
So was the case during initial days!
