The Instagram collab feature has made collaborating on Instagram easier than ever. You can use this feature to collab with another user to share a post and Reel. When you collab with someone on an Instagram post or Reel, your name appears with the other person on the shared content.
Note that the shared content will appear on the profiles of both involved parties. It is worth noting that you can only collaborate with one person on Instagram at a time. The collaborated Reel or post will appear in the followers’ feeds of both involved parties.
We will explain in this article how to accept collaboration requests on Instagram.
