Addressing people on Instagram is getting easier as Instagram announced a new feature called Pronouns. Here you can define how want others to address you.
Users now can add their preferred pronouns on Instagram. The feature has been launched in a few locations but soon will be available to all. Currently, the feature is available to the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. To avail of the feature, you have to at least 18 years old.
You can add your preferred pronouns by going to your Account. Under account settings, you will find a new field that says “Pronouns”. There you can add up to four pronouns. You can define yourself as you think it suits you the better. After adding, you can choose who can see that. You can allow everyone to see it or you can limit your pronouns to your followers only.
Instagram wants your followers or friends to call you the way you want them to. As a result, Instagram came up with such a feature. In fact, Instagram seems taking steps on cyberbullying and so on. Even it is now filtering abusive comments and messages from strangers. Instagram wants to create a better social platform for all. We should appreciate such a step of Instagram.
