Snap a photo to follow a new friend on Instagram with its Nametags tool

Adding friends on Instagram is now as simple as scanning a photo. On Thursday, October 4, Instagram launched Nametag, a custom scannable graphic that allows other users to follow you by snapping a photo. The launch comes alongside Instagram’s tests directed toward school communities designed to connect college students.



Scanning a Nametag works like reading a QR code — just point the in-app camera at the Nametag, press and hold the screen, and that user’s profile will pop up.
