Custom social share button: Instagram DM

Hi there!

I’m working on a website for a client who provided the design. There is a blog post page that includes custom social share buttons. I’ve managed to find social share link generator for the most of them, however, I wasn’t able to find any solution for Instagram.

I understand that we cannot share the page on Instagram stories or generate a new post (at least without the API). Maybe there is a relatively simple way to make this link open Instagram DM with “” in the message field? Much like it is possible to share youtube video link from the app to someone in Inst DM, when the user is able to choose the reciever

Something in the format of, like <a href=""></a>, that’s the most amount of code I can handle…

Many thanks!
