Introducing the latest, newest and coolest feature on Instagram right now, is the Nametag feature on Instagram that allows you to use name tag on Instagram to view and follow friends on Instagram without typing in long usernames to search for contacts and friends. Basically, for those that don’t really understand what a Nametag is, it is in my own words a tag that is attached to something that bears the name of the person or something to what or whom it has been willed to.

Now, to use name tag on Instagram makes it easy for users of Instagram to simply access an Instagram page and view someone’s profile and follow the person if he or she chooses to. For you to use name tag on Instagram is like a particular QR code that every person that has updated their Instagram app and has the Nametag feature available on their Instagram can, therefore, use it to scan other Nametags belonging to other Instagram users. The way to use nametag on Instagram is quite easy, but before you start using it, you need to create your own nametag so that with your very own nametag, you can now start scanning your friend’s nametag and adding them on your Instagram account.
