While Instagram users can leave comments on your public photos, the site has no direct private messaging system. Your account enables you to answer questions you receive via video or text on your page, with your own custom URL. By sharing your profile link on your Instagram account, you provide those who view your photos with a means to contact you, without having to give out personal information.

1 Profile Link

Include your page as your Instagram profile link by editing your Instagram profile. In the Website field, enter your URL using the following syntax:

Replace "username" with your username. Click the "Submit" button to make your changes permanent. Visitors who view your Instagram profile can now see a link to your account in your profile's bio.
