Instagram Pronouns

Olivia Nichols

Recently, social media platform, Instagram has received positive feedback about their new feature. Instagram users will now be able to add their gender identity to their profiles after the platform launched a section for pronouns.

Users can share up to four pronouns with the new feature. They can be selected from a list of dozens of options, including she, he, they, ze, ve and many others, to prevent users from adding inappropriate words.

Instagram plans to update the list of terms over time. If users want to request a pronoun that is not featured on the already-existing list, they can submit a form to Instagram with their request.

Pronouns are visible directly next to users’ names on their profiles. They will automatically be private, visible only for users’ followers, for users under the age of 18.
