Instagram Pronoun

Instagram announced a new feature that lets users display up to four pronouns on their profiles. Instagram said that this feature is launching for users in a few countries.

Sometimes names can be so unique that it misleads someone’s gender. Good news for them, on Instagram, you can now add the pronoun that describes you. Instagram has added a dedicated place for pronouns to users’ profiles, freeing up some of that limited 150-character for Instagram bio.

Instagram’s new feature allows users to showcase up to four pronouns in the faded text next to their profile name. It is optional though, so if you don’t want to add pronouns, don’t add them. And if you did, you can remove or change them at any time.

How to add Pronouns?

To add your pronouns, go to your profile. Then tap the Edit Profile button, then tap Pronouns. Now add whatever pronouns you wish. But because it has a purpose, you can only select from the results that pop up.

Currently, the option is not available in many countries. Only select English-speaking countries. Instagram says it’s planning to roll it out widely soon.

“We are giving people more tools to express themselves on Instagram,” a Facebook company spokesperson told Mashable. “Sharing pronouns has been widely adopted by our community, and with this feature, we hope to normalize the adoption further.”

In a tweet, Instagram also mentioned that they are continuously updating the list of words over time. And ask people to help them too. When they can’t find their pronoun, they can submit suggestions using a request form. This update will be appreciated by LGBTQ+ community.

Instagram’s parent Facebook added the feature back in 2014. More recently, LinkedIn also introduced pronouns for profiles after hearing from recruiters and job seekers of its importance during the hiring process. Turns out things are changing for good. The update will be ready soon!
