Instagram Share Button

Instagram does not offer web-sharing endpoints — which makes sense since the nature of Instagram as a mobile photo and video sharing platform means it’s not really suited to sharing web links.

However, there is a method that you can deploy to enable Instagram sharing on Mobile devices.

In your Share Button settings:

  1. Enable More Options Button
  2. Enable Native UI  (this enables our Web Share API integration which invokes the native sharing mechanism of the device which makes it possible to share links to other apps installed on the device in the same way as platform-specific apps)

Now, when visitors click on the "More Options" button, they will see Instagram as an option (as long as they have the Instagram App installed on their mobile device):

Shareaholic also makes Instagram available as a follow button which you can use to link to your Instagram profile.
