Instagram Now Lets You Share Traditional Posts to Your Story

Instagram Now Lets You Share Traditional Posts to Your Story

No, it's not a "regram" option. To do so, you tap the paper airplane icon underneath the image and choose to share it as a sticker in your Story.

Instagram just made it easier to share and highlight in stories the pictures and videos you see in your feed.

In another move to help unify the timeline, Instagram is today rolling out a new feature that lets users share photos from the timeline in Stories.

You can now share someone else's Instagram post to your own story, Instagram announced on Thursday. Stories has gotten the lion's share of attention, having ballooned to 300 million daily active users in a relatively short period of time. At the top, you'll now see the option to create a story.

Stifel Nicolaus Reaffirms "Hold" Rating for Caterpillar (CAT)
The investment professionals in our partner's database reported: 30.16 million shares, down from 30.37 million shares in 2017Q3. Following the completion of the sale, the chief financial officer now owns 2,554 shares in the company, valued at $397,581.18.

All posts shared to stories display the original poster's username. While the company offers sharing of posts through private messages, it doesn't allow users to share posts to their feeds.

Not only will you be able to share your own personal photos, you'll be able to share photos from public accounts directly to your story as a sticker (via The Verge). If you want to run a public account, but don't want people re-sharing your posts, you can opt to turn off the new feature in the app's settings.

Do you think Instagram will ever embrace the regram? That would give Stories more prominence on the network - though not everyone is thrilled with their takeover.

For privacy, there is a limit on the new feature.
