If you want to mention some other Instagram account in your post, you can definitely do so. It's an integral part of social media marketing – you want to have the word spread about your products and brands. πŸ™‚

When you're adding a text to the post in the ZoomSphere Scheduler, type "@" and follow with the name of the account. Unlike other social networks, you will not see a list from which you can choose the account, and the text will not turn blue, but once the post is published on Instagram, the mention will be active. Therefore, you have to enter the full and exact name of the account.

How to mention an account:

1) Open Instagram and search for the account you'd like to mention.

2) Look at the account in your browser or mobile application.

3) Find and copy the name of the account, for example, @zoomspherecom. You will not see any list from which you can choose your account, and the text will not turn blue. But if you type it correctly, don't worry, it will work. πŸ™‚

4) After publishing your post, the text will turn blue to indicate that everything is working correctly with your mention.
