On May 11, Instagram launched a sticker called "Support Small Business" as a way to help struggling businesses amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Many were forced to cease operations because of quarantine, and small businesses, in particular, are facing a lot of challenges.
You probably saw it appear on the row of Stories when you opened the app, but what exactly does it do?
How to Use the "Support Small Business" Sticker
- Go to your Instagram Stories and upload a picture like you normally would.
- Next, go to the sticker options and choose "Support Small Business" located at the top left corner.
- You can tag the Instagram account of the business you're supporting and their page will appear. This can help businesses reach new customers!
Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri wrote, "Today we're launching a 'Support Small Business' sticker in Stories so you can shout out your favorite small biz. Use it and your photo or video will be added to a shared story where friends can see which businesses you love. We want to make it as easy as possible to support amazing small businesses right now."
