New Instagram Update Allows Sharing Of Instagram Feed Posts To Stories

  • With the new feature public posts can go straight from feed to story.                  Instagram

As Instagram notes, this only works on posts made by profiles that are public, which means that you can share a post made by a profile that is private. Moreover, if you have a public account, you can prevent others from sharing your posts to their Stories by heading over to the Settings Resharing to Stories menu.

When you re-share something posted by a brand or a Instagram user to your own story feed, Instagram will show the original post in the form of a thumbnail style image. The idea with the new re-sharing option is to give users a way to add their own commentary or react to a post, without repurposing it as their own - the way a regram (reposting to feed) feature would have permitted.

Until now, the way to do that was to screenshot the other person's post and then share it on your profile as a Story. The new re-sharing option now gives users a third way to get their friends' attention.

Facebook-owned Instagram keeps rolling out new features to its app at regular intervals, especially the ones that encourage increased usage of Instagram Stories. The background color of the Story will change depending on the post you have added.

Once posted, your Instagram Story will display the original poster's username below the sticker, which your friends can tap on to head back to the original post. It is unclear if this is as far as Instagram will go to allow users to reshare posts, or if this will be a separate feature from regramming. That would give Stories more prominence on the network - though not everyone is thrilled with their takeover. This feature will be coming soon via software update.
