Instagram going to launch a brand new feature for  Business people

Instagram is going to launch a new feature which will help the users to make bookings through the app, according the officials. The Facebook-owned photo-sharing site will come with a new update which will provide its users to book appointments with businesses, transforming it into a marketplace in the mould of Yelp and OpenTable. People will be able to book a haircut by visiting a barber’s Instagram page and tapping a button to schedule it, reports said. Instagram is planning to add further options such as reviews. “When someone books an appointment, that's not a 'like' or a 'follow,' that's actual action,” said Instagram's head of business, James Quarles. There is no doubt that this new feature will assist Instagram to generate more revenue. Mr Quarles also added, the advertisers will have an effective view on their accounts which will boost the entire business. According to Instagram officials, 80% of the users follow a company in Instagram and moreover 8 million businesses have active Instagram profiles. The stunning new feature is expected to launch in the next couple of months.
