Social Media updates Financial Advisors need to know about

You finally get to grips with the latest in social media and then it all changes… sound familiar? Here, I provide a rundown of the social media updates financial advisors need to know about.

Instagram now allows up to 5 links in bio

Instagram users no longer have to decide on one external link to use in their profile, as the platform has announced it will allow up to five links per bio.

Previously, Instagrammers would have to use a service like Linktree to drive traffic to more than one source outside the app, with Instagram wanting to maximize its in-app use. Any of the five links clicked on by users will open inside the Instagram app.

To add more links to an Instagram profile, select “links” from the “edit profile” menu, and tap “add external link.” Users can choose the order in which they’d like their links to appear in their bio.

Twitter advertisers must be verified

Twitter advertisers must now be verified. The platform emailed its advertisers to say: “Your @account must have a verified checkmark or subscribe to either Twitter Blue or Verified Organizations to continue running ads on Twitter.”

Facebook is testing a new AI Feature

Facebook is testing an AI feature that generates stories for users based on content they’ve uploaded in the past.


  • TikTok is moving to ban all climate change denier content
  • TikTok has confirmed that you can still upload ten-minute TikToks after some users realised the option had disappeared – you just can’t record ten-minute videos within the app.
  • TikTok is rolling out a “sort” filter for the video tab on profiles, you’ll be able to select from “Latest” and “Popular”
