Instagram is adding the ability to place live hashtags and profile links directly in your bio this week. With this, you can add your favorite hashtag directly to your profile or even link straight to your bae’s profile so everyone knows you’re in a relationship and miserable.

As you can see in the header image above, whenever you add a “#” in the bio, Instagram will recommend a few hashtags you might be looking for. You can add whichever you might want. The same goes for profiles. When you place a “@” during the editing process, you’ll see your list of friends that you can add.

Once saved, the links are live and anyone that visits your profile can click them and see what you’re all about.

For profiles in particular, Instagram explains, “When you mention someone else’s profile in your bio, they will receive a notification and can choose to remove the link to their profile. Their profile will remain in your bio but without a link.”

These changes are rolling out right now, so be sure to add your bae!
