Instagram launched on Monday (11) a new interactive sticker for Stories that aims to support small businesses. The social network initiative aims to help publicize local businesses hit by the economic crisis caused by the new coronavirus pandemic. When added to a photo or video and published in the story, the new sticker shows the last three publications of the marked profile and, when touched, allows followers to visit the profile or follow the company.
