Instagram to Limit the Name Change Option

Instagram allows its users to change their name whenever they want but now the platform is limiting it to only two times within 14 days.

Jane Manchun Wong, a reverse-engineering expert from Hong Kong, shared on her Twitter account that the popular social platform is working to limit the name changing option. It is believed that the step is taken to minimize the scams or spread of misinformation on the platform.

Users are often seen changing their names frequently and pretend to be someone else. The basic purpose of name is that a person can be identified through their common name, be it your full name, nickname, or the name of your business.

Also, Instagram is reportedly working on a new “DM Me” sticker for its Stories feature. Along with other stickers like Hashtag, Mention, or Location, the “DM Me” sticker could be used in Stories to let followers DM you directly from the stories.

The replies from stories are received in inbox as well, but it would be interesting to see how the new sticker is different from it.

In recent times, Instagram has been introducing various new changes on its platform. As it recently also allowed to donate for fundraising campaigns directly from the Instagram Live.

According to Instagram, the money raised from the donations during the live sessions will all go to non-profit organizations so the needy could be helped during the pandemic situation worldwide.

People who will donate during live sessions will then be able to see a “I Donated” sticker which could be used for Stories along with your picture or video. Other people will then get to know about the donation and this might motivate them too.

Instagram has been actively bringing changes to keep its audience engaged and also help them in playing their role by giving back to society through the fundraising option.
