Instagram just rolled out with a new coronavirus-inspired feature that will help the community adapt to the new normal. They added a “Support Small Business” shoutout sticker and Lebanese small businesses got a boost of hope.
The photo/video sharing app has been active during the pandemic. Earlier, it released a social distancing feature that connected people through the app.
Now it is doing its part in the crisis to make people feel helpful and productive in their communities.
People also are loving this new feature. They finally feel they can help their local business owners get some engagement. All it takes is a simple shoutout!
The “Support Small Businesses” sticker is available in Stories. It also appears as its own Story, which is a collection of all the shoutouts made by your friends.
The pandemic has taken its toll on businesses around the globe. Mentioning a small business on IG is the least people can do to support it.
That is especially true in Lebanon where the virus outbreak has come to further impact the already decaying economy.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
