Whether you want to share your own post to your stories feed, or you’re reposting a cool piece of user-generated content, it’s super-simple to share: Tap the paper airplane icon (share button) underneath a feed post. Select “Add Post to Your Story”.
Sharing an Instagram post to your Instagram Story is easy compared to sharing it in your feed. Launch the Instagram app and locate the post you’d like to share. Tap on the “paper airplane” button appearing below the post. This launches the “Share” menu.
The reasons that you won’t find a social share button on web pages for Instagram is that Instagram itself has not made it technically possible, and all in all people don’t want to use Instagram to find links to view content elsewhere. If they want that, they’ll go on twitter.
New: Share Feed Posts to Instagram Stories
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.
The main reason to fail to share the Instagram story is that the account owner limited the sharing of the posts. … The person you’re following probably has an Instagram private account where they have to accept people to follow them. So know that you can easily share posts from public accounts into the Instagram story.
Instagram is taking away a central feature of stories for some of its users. Select people are seeing a message in their app that tells them Instagram is “testing a change to sharing to stories”. The change means that users won’t be able to share posts from their own and others’ feeds onto their stories.
Instagram is no longer a photo sharing app, according to Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram. In a video posted to his Instagram and Twitter accounts, Mosseri said the company is looking to lean into entertainment and video after seeing the success of competitors like TikTok and YouTube.
