Instagram Looks to Launch Local Business Profile Pages

Posted on: Mon, 18/03/2019

Instagram is looking to expand and is encouraging more businesses to engage with its platform by testing profile pages for local businesses. Instagram has not officially announced this new feature however, there are reports that some users are seeing this update.

With similar information panels to Google, Instagram will show a company’s address, opening hours, phone number, URL, pricing and the type of business that it is with a link to the main Instagram profile. Users can find this information by searching for a business and clicking on a ‘view information’ button. A company can then claim this listing if it also has access to the Facebook page. By claiming the profile, users will be able to edit their company information.
