Instagram News – Share Feed Posts to Stories
Those folks at Instagram are at it again! They have been releasing updates and new features at record pace, and here is another great addition.
Now you can share posts from you feed directly to Instagram Stories, even including a sticker. No more screenshooting or using specialized software. This is one of those convenience features we love, something to make our time marketing with Instagram faster and easier. And for other users it’s just a fun way to share something that inspires you with your own followers.
Check out what Instagram has to say about it here:
“When you come across something in feed that inspires you — like a post from a friend raising money for a cause or a photo of a new design from your favorite brand — you can now quickly share that post as a sticker to your story for your friends and followers to see.
To share a feed post to your story, just tap the paper airplane button below the post, just as you would to send it via Direct. At the top, you’ll now see the option to create a story. Tap it to see the feed post as a sticker with a customized background ready to share to your story. You can rotate, scale and move the sticker — and tap it to explore other styles.
All posts shared to stories display the original poster’s username. When you see a post in someone’s story, you can tap it to check out the original post and see more from the person who created it.”
