Instagram tests group profiles
Instagram seeks to expand the possibilities of groups in the social network with the development of group profiles, which will allow several people to share their content in one place, and are currently in testing.
The Communities is one of Meta's great bets for its social networks. Announced first for WhatsApp, and later for Messenger and Facebook, they bring together in one place the conversation groups that revolve around a theme or a common social space, such as the children's school or the activities of the neighborhood associations.
For a time the Communities were also seen on Instagram, as reverse engineering expert Alessandro Paluzzi has already shared since March, and on several occasions. The last that is known of them is that they have changed their name to Group Profiles.
Each community, or group profile, requires its own username and profile picture, as well as its own. as a description. Users can join as members or administrators, and activity can be public or private.
From screenshots shared by Paluzzi in August it is known that members of a group profile can share in it publications and photographs, which will be visible to everyone in the event that it is a public group.
Meta has confirmed this new feature and the Tests being conducted in Canada. “We are testing the ability to join a group profile and share stories, feed posts or reels with group members, so people can connect with others about their interests in a dedicated space,” explained a company spokesperson to Business Insider, and reported by Europa Press.
