    6 monthes ago - By MobileSyrup

    Instagram has rolled out a new feature that allows users to easily share posts they see in the feed directly to stories. To do so, tap the paper airplane button below the post, just as you would when sending a post in a direct message. Now, there will also be an option here to create a story that will display the feed post as a sticker with a customized background. The sticker can be rotated, scaled or moved around, while the background itself can be set to different styles. Once finished, you can share it as you would with any other story.

    Instagram is making it easier to flesh out your Instagram Stories, adding the ability to quickly share something there directly from the feed.

    Instagram today made it possible to share feed posts directly to stories. The latest version of the app includes tools that make it easy to share a post published in your feed to your own story as a sticker where your friends and followers can see and interact with it. Posts shared to stories will display the original poster's username and a link so viewers can see the original post and learn more about the original poster. Instagram says users can only share posts from public accounts, and users who don't want their posts shared in others' stories can opt out. The new Instagram is...

    Instagram officially launches re-sharing of posts to Stories

    6 monthes ago - By TechCrunch

    No, it's not a “regram” option. Sorry! But today, Instagram is officially launching a new feature that will allow users to re-share someone's Instagram post with their friends via Instagram Stories - something it confirmed was in testing earlier this year. 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 feature would have permitted.
    For example, you can now re-share something you saw posted by a brand or influencer on Instagram that you like, or add your own comments on top...

    6 monthes ago - By The Verge

    The line between Instagram posts and stories is getting even thinner today. There's a new feature that will let users share posts - both from their own account and from public accounts they follow - directly to their story as a sticker.
    Instagram imagines the feature will be used to help promote friends and brands you like on your own story, making it easier to share, say, a band's tour announcement with your followers. (It's easier than saving or screenshotting the image itself since people are going to do it anyway.) Any post that you share to your story still will include the original...
