    I never understood this. I want to be able to use Instagram to get people to my sites but not enough people go beyond liking or commenting on a picture. I can't get them to go on my profiles and click the link in the bio.

    It is my understanding that they want to prevent spam and 3rd party advertising on other people's pages. This is the only way to prevent it. I can understand doing it because the level of spam seen on Twitter using hashtags is unbelievable.

    Basically what Max said there. It would bring in too much spam and too many people abusing the system. They don't want the site to be one that is commercial ready like other platforms. Facebook owns the place, they don't need the money.
