Before I explain how to create a place on Instagram , I need to provide you with some useful preliminary information in this regard.
First of all, you should know that Instagram doesn’t allow you to create custom places. In the past it was possible to bypass this limit by using Facebook: by creating a personalized place on the famous social network (which now also owns Instagram), this could in fact also be used on Instagram.
However, to date, this procedure is no longer feasible. It is still possible to create a custom place on Facebook , but this cannot be used on Instagram.
Currently in to whom I write this guide, it remains possible to add a place on Instagram by geotagging posts or stories , through the use of the official functionality of the photographic social network. However, it is necessary to use an existing place. In reality it is still possible to enter a custom place, but only if it was created via Facebook, when the integration of the function was supported by Instagram.
Having made the necessary premises, let’s see how to add a place on Instagram in the main sections dedicated to the publication of multimedia content.

How to add location on Instagram biography
If you want to add a place in the bio of your Instagram account, you should know that, unfortunately, personal Instagram accounts do not have this functionality.
also pressing the Edit button corresponding to your profile, to modify the Biography , it is not possible to add a place, unless you type it manually. In this case, however, the place will not be clickable, as it is only a textual addition.
But if you have a corporate Instagram account or if you make the switch to the same for free, so that you can also take advantage of the professional tools related to Statistical data , you can add a clickable place in the bio of your profile, as the address of the company.
After switching to a corporate Instagram account , via the menu Settings> Account> Switch to a professional account of the app, go to your profile and click on the Edit button.
