Facebook has announced plans to make it easier for users of its Instagram platform to donate.

At a Facebook Communities Summit held in the US this month Facebook revealed a raft of product updates aimed at supporting its online communities.

This includes the creation later this year of a donation feature on Instagram stories.

In a statement Facebook, which bought the Instagram photo sharing platform in 2012, said: “Last November, we announced that people raised over $1 billion for nonprofit organisations through Charitable Giving on Facebook.

“Later this year, Instagram will bring the ability for people to support nonprofits that are important to them through a donation sticker in Instagram Stories.”
