Heads up Instagram lovers, the social media platform is getting rid of the “swipe up” gesture to access links in Instagram Stories.

On August 30 the feature used by many businesses as a path to a website will be replaced by stickers.

This “LinkSticker” as it’s called, has been in test mode since June and businesses will see the change on Monday, August 30.

Do you like the “LinkSticker” idea? Can you use the “swipe up” feature on your Instagram page?
