Can you support the “book it now” feature on Instagram as described below? I do not see OwnerRez listed. It would be great if you do. 

You can see from the below image that OR is not currently listed.

In order to add the "BOOK NOW" button on Instagram, it needs to be added to your booking software (Owner Reservations) and then you need to log in to enable it. 
Here are the steps you can take on Instagram on your phone (logged in as @XXXXXXXX) if you want to see if it is possible to set it up:
Log- Edit Profile- Scroll Down to "Action Buttons"- Click on "None Active"- Select Button > Book Now- Select a Partner:

This is where you select your booking partner- You may also need to be logged into the booking software on your phone so that IG can verify the connection similar to Owner Bridge

It’s Instagram‘s world, we just live in it.

does anyone actually book on IG? we have had IG for years and post regularly. Judging by Google Analytics, it is a dud.

There is no book it now functionality for owner reservations on Instagram currently. It is hard to evaluate something that is not activated yet.

We’re seeing more and more engagement on Instagram every month. It is something that we need to be ready for and anticipate. People use it a heck of a lot more than email, websites or FB now. 

OR - Please add this feature.
