The ability to add pronouns is a welcome change to promote gender diversity and help users identify themselves better if they are struggling with their identities. As announced via a tweet, the feature is now available for users in a few countries (mostly the English-speaking ones) and is expected to reach more countries. To add pronouns to your bio, you simply need to head to your profile section, select the Edit Profile option, tap on the Pronouns option, and start entering yours. It is suggested that a list will also pop up for you to make an easy choice. A report by Mashable reveals that Instagram is 41 options for the same. It is also revealed that the app lets you hide your pronouns from people that aren’t following you. This reportedly is a default setting for users under 18 years. The idea is to ensure that people aren’t harassed on the photo-sharing platform.
