Facebook-owned Instagram does not allow everyone to share links on their stories.
Facebook-owned Instagram does not allow everyone to share links on their stories. The company only allows verified users or those with more than 10,000 followers to put up a “Swipe Up” link to their stories. Now, it seems that Instagram is bringing the ability to share links on Stories to more users. The company recently told a website that it has started a test that gives a small subset of users the ability to link a website using a Stories sticker. According to the report, users will be able to respond to the Stories with sticker links, something that can’t be done with Swipe Up stories currently.
