Shortly after introducing the emoji slider sticker, Instagram, announced its newest feature — which now allows you to share feed posts to your story.
To share a feed post to your story Instagram which currently has 800M+ monthly active users, 300M+ active daily users and 300M+ daily story storylines,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.
You can only share posts from public accounts. If you don’t want your posts shared to stories by other people, you can easily opt out in settings.
