He says, fit more into the current way people use the platform, so he says this test “brings links into the same kind of overall system, which from a simplicity of system perspective, also makes a lot of sense.
He adds that link stickers are the eventual goal for Instagram, whether that be for everyone or just people who already have linking privileges. “That is the sort of future system we would like to get to,” he says. “And that’s what we hope to roll out, if we’re able to make this work.” Links will be limited to stories for now, however.
Shah says there’s “no plan” to bring them to the feed or any other part of the app. These Sticker Links are small test to the public usage
