Biographies on Instagram profiles became a lot more useful with Wednesday’s addition of hashtag and profile links.

Instagram said in a blog post that users can now tap Edit Profile and go to their bio sections to take advantage of the new features.

The Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network will provide a list of recommended hashtags and accounts, and users can select which ones to include in their bios, after which they will automatically be linked.

Owners of linked profiles will be notified, and they can choose to remove the links. Should they choose to do so, their profiles will remain in the bio, minus the link.

Instagram added the ability for users to follow hashtags last December.
