Until not long ago, to be able to share stories of other people on Instagram, on our own, it was necessary to use applications such as Regram or Repost. Fortunately, the company behind the social network decided to listen to its community and integrate this feature, thus eliminating the need to resort to third-party applications.
In this way, it is now possible to share the content of the Stories of the rest of the users in our Stories. And while the process is not as simple as retweeting on Twitter or sharing a Facebook post, follow a few simple steps to do so.
Share Stories from other users in your own Stories
The possibility of sharing Stories of our friends has been active since August 2018, and therefore by now, it should be operational for all users of the social network. Of course, this option has an important limitation since it will only be possible to share those stories in which we have been mentioned, as specified on the support page of the social network.
Once we are notified about a Story that has been mentioned to us, access it through the direct messages tray, and click on the blue text that indicates Add content to your Story. Thus, the publication screen of a new Story will appear with the content that we are going to share, and that can be edited as if it were any other Story.
Finally, click on the “Send” button to share the content in our Story. When viewed, the image will appear surrounded by a box indicating that the Story has been shared from another user’s profile, including their name and photo.
