Sharing Instagram Feed Posts to Stories

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.


How to share feed posts to Instagram Stories

To share feed posts to stories:

  1. Tap the paper airplane button below the post (like you would to send a direct message)
  2. You’ll then see an option on the following menu to “Create a story with this post”
  3. Tap it to see the feed post as a sticker with a customized background ready to share to your story. You can move, resize or rotate the photo or video. You can also use drawing tools or add text and stickers.

Any post shared to a story will include a link back to the original post and include the original poster’s username.

Only posts from public Instagram accounts can be shared to stories. If you have a public account and would like to opt-out from letting people share your posts to stories, you can do so within Instagram’s settings.

I am starting to use the heck out of this new feature. Let me know what you guys think. 

 

Thanks, Chris! I need to get better at using IG. This is a great help!

I am using Instagram for my business promotion, but I was not aware of this tactic. Thanks Chris.

Started playing around with it yesterday and its pretty sweet. Makes double posting so much easier.

Chris, how are you using this in the dealership?  Any examples?

I'll post to the main timeline and then share that post to the stories page and mark it up with fun stuff.
