How to Repost an Instagram Post to a Story

Instagram posts from public accounts may usually be published as part of your Instagram story, which allows your followers to see what you’re up to. Because it’s the only official option to share a post created by someone else on Instagram, it’s extremely popular owing to its simplicity and the fact that it goes back to the original creator.

1. Open the Instagram app on your iOS or Android smartphone and navigate to the Instagram post that you wish to  share with your followers.

2. To add a new post to your story, click on the paper aircraft symbol.

3. The post has now been included in a new Instagram story, which you can view here. You may now include the normal graphics, text, and music in your video.

4. To post as a new Instagram story, select Your Story from the drop-down menu.

How to Share an Instagram Story on Your Own Account

Despite the fact that it is possible to share some Instagram stories created by others with your followers, it must match certain criteria:

  • The account must be accessible to the general public. You will not be able to share a story from a private Instagram profile.
  • Instagram story sharing must be enabled on the device.
  • You must be included in the tale in some way.

When you’re tagged in an Instagram story, you’ll receive a direct message (DM) from Instagram alerting you of the tag. The link in the message should be visible if the account that tagged you is public and enables sharing of their material; to republish this tale within a new story on your account, tap Add This to Your Story and then follow the steps from above.

How to Repost an Instagram Story if You’re Not Tagged

While there are a plethora of third-party applications that allow you to repost someone else’s Instagram posts, none of them allow you to repost someone else’s Instagram stories at this time. One way around this restriction, though, is to make advantage of your device’s screenshot and screen capturing capabilities.

If you’re watching someone else’s Instagram story, you can capture a screenshot of it while you’re viewing it and then publish the screenshot to your own tale. Similarly, you may utilize screen recording to create an Instagram story video, which you can then share in your own tale by reposting the video.

TIP: When you screen record someone else’s Instagram story, the video that is taken includes both UI components from the Instagram app and the Instagram story itself, which is called a mixed-mode video. Use two fingers to move and resize the video while creating your own story. This will allow you to erase the videos you don’t want anymore.
