Instagram is setting up a separate dedicated space for its users to add their pronouns in their profiles.
Seeing people mention their preferred pronouns for themselves has now become commonplace — so the app developers have provided the option to add them without wasting people’s profile space.
Sounding the official news on Twitter, Instagram announced “Add pronouns to your profile”. “The new field is available in a few countries, with plans for more.”

What Else Is There
Adding more to the feature, there is also an option to show the pronouns only to the followers. If someone does not want to share their pronouns publicly, they can restrict it as well.
Keeping the mind that people are feeling the need to share or specify their gender and looking at its widespread use Instagram has made a good move. This feature will automatically be turned on for users below 18 years by default.
