Instagram has rolled out a new update for developers that expands the capabilities for creators with large followings. Before this change, creators with more than 500k followers needed to convert their accounts to a professional type to utilize third-party platforms such as LinkDM. The recent update, however, changes this scenario and enables these creators to use LinkDM without the necessity of modifying their account type.
The updated policy offers dual benefits. Alongside the seamless integration with platforms like LinkDM, it also ensures creators don't lose out on specific tools unique to creator accounts, tools which were previously unavailable upon switching to a professional account. So, for creators who had changed their account type mainly to use LinkDM, it's now possible to switch back to a creator account and still have complete access to LinkDM's features.
