Instagram to launch donation feature
Charities are set to benefit from the introduction of a donation feature on Instagram stories.
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.”
