Users for whom the feature is currently unavailable can fill out a form to receive and submit, or simply add the pronoun to their bio. The feature was already there in a few other apps, and even Facebook has a limited number of pronouns enabled.
The new feature follows on Facebook in front of a coalition of 44 US attorneys general who are against the platform “Instagram for Kids”. Instagram for Kids allows children under the age of 13 to use Instagram, a proposal that has met with opposition from attorneys general over mental health and privacy reasons that have urged Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg not to start. From now on, a child under the age of 13 can have their own Instagram account if this is under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian and is managed by them.
