Q. Why do I need to tag the brand using the Instagram link IMG_3294sticker?

A. Great question! Previously, shoutouts used to require brands to be tagged using the Instagram @ mention sticker so they would be notified of the shoutout. However, with the launch of our mobile app, we’ve adopted Instagram’s link functionality which means that when you add the link sticker, it enables the dual function of notifying the brand that you’ve shouted them out AND allows your followers to tap on the link to be instantly redirected to their Insta feed so they can check them out and fall in love with them too!
