    We all know that Instagram is one of the most used social media apps in a smartphone. The reason Instagram became popular is because of its simplicity. You just need to scroll through tons of photos continuously. Due to this reason, many people have started to promote their business on Instagram rather than Facebook.

    This has caused advertisers to spend hundreds of dollars to just promote their business. Have you ever seen Instagram influencers promote different types of business on Instagram. If you notice their post, they have the privilege to attach links in their Story.

    However, now there is a way for you to achieve that easily. Back in 2016, Facebook has submitted a patent where it will allow you to add captions to your post directly. But, there is a catch in it. Facebook will require you to pay $2 in order for you to share the link in the Instagram post.

    The traditional method of doing this is to the following text in the post; “Check out the link in our Bio page”. We need to assume that your Instagram followers will be clicking the link from your Bio page in order to check out the posted link. But some desperate users probably might be willing to pay $2 for a link in a post. Unless you want to share your content links then you need to have at least 10,000 Instagram followers in order to share link in your Stories. Do you have 10,000 followers now?

    This looks like a Facebook new earning model. We are sure that desperate users surely will spend money to share links on their post. The reason is with a link you can easily click the link directly from the post itself rather than clicking the link in the bio.

    In a nutshell, it is weird that it has been four years and yet Facebook rolls out this feature. Will you pay $2 to share links on post? Share us your thoughts in the comment section below.
