Facebook-owned photo-messaging app Instagram is reportedly testing a donation sticker on its Stories feature that would offer fundraising and donation tools for charity or personal reasons.

“Instagram is working on ‘Donation’ sticker. It lets users start fundraisers for their favorite non-profits,” tipster Jane Manchun Wong tweeted on Monday.

Facebook has been hosting such fundraising tools since 2015 and it recently dropped fees associated with those donations.

“Over the past few years, Instagram has been experimenting with what payments would look like on the platform, but it has so far only released test features to allow select users to book spa appointments and restaurant reservations,” The Verge reported.

Pretending to be “Instagram famous”, a 25-year-old Florida man allegedly lured a Texas-based minor girl only to repeatedly sexually assault and rape her for days.

Richard Brown, who already faces six felony counts of child sexual abuse, got in touch with the 17-year-old girl on Instagram and claimed to be a 19-year-old, rich and “Instagram famous”, the media reported.

He had reportedly booked an Uber costing over $800 to get the girl from her home in Texas to his parent’s home in Orlando and kept her trapped for three days.

The girl however managed to escape and reported to the local authorities while keeping her mother informed via Snapchat.

“The girl told authorities that she quickly realised Brown wasn’t who he claimed to be, but that he pressured her into staying with him for three nights as he had paid for her journey,” the report said.
