Instagram Collabs feature allows users to share posts or Reels in collaboration with other accounts. The feature will attract more views as the content can be viewed by the followers of the original author and co-authors.
The creator of the post will have to send a collaboration request to another user. On acceptance, the collab post will appear in the timeline of the original author and collaborators. The original author can add or remove a collaborator at any time. If the original author deletes the post, it will be removed from the collaborator's profile as well.
Nevertheless, a private account user on Instagram cannot invite collaborators.
Here’s how to invite collaborator
Step 1: Log in to your Instagram account.
Step 2: Create a post or a Reel of your choice.
Step 3: Proceed to share the content.
Step 4: Click on ‘tag people’ option from the menu.
Step 5: Tap the ‘invite collaborator’ button appearing in the right corner.
Step 6: Search for the user you want to collaborate with and select their username.
Note: You can add multiple accounts as collaborators for a single post. However, they will have to accept your Collab request.
Step 7: Now, proceed to share.
