Through a blog post, Instagram announced the addition of a feature that makes it easier to share posts from the Instagram News Feed in stories. A relevant option that avoids making captures of posts and then sharing them again.
To do so, just click on the airplane icon, below the post, as if you wanted to send it to a friend via a message. On the first line, it will be displayed “Create a story with this post”. By clicking on it, you will be able to add a sticker, rotate or move it. The shared post will be displayed with a customizable background.
Posts that you share in your stories will display the username of the person who made the post. So when you come across a post in a story, you can click on the person’s name to view their profile. It is only possible to share public account posts. If you don’t want your friends or other users to share your posts, you can disable the setting.
This new feature is now available on Android and will arrive on iOS in “the next few days”. Over the past few weeks, Instagram has been developing many features for stories such as adding music, emojis-based polls and integrations with Spotify and GoPro. Instagram continues to make inroads into storytelling for a variety of reasons. The first is Facebook’s global strategy to make stories the primary sharing channel. Then, with its new design, Snapchat has disappointed many users, which is why the yellow ghost application went back on its design, a godsend for Instagram.
