Instagram officially launches re-sharing of posts to Stories

Instagram ввел функцию репоста

When you find something on your Feed of static, non-ephemeral Instagram posts which strikes your fancy, you can add it to your Story. Tap this to see the feed post appear as a sticker of sorts with a customized background, reading for re-sharing.

To do this, tap the paper airplane icon like you were sending a message and hit the "create a story" option at the top.

Instagram today announced an update that allows users to share Feed posts to Stories, finally allowing crossover between its two primary picture galleries. The idea with the new re-sharing option is to give users a way to add their own commentary or react to a post, without repurposing it as their own - the way a regram (reposting to feed) feature would have permitted.

Instagram will also let you rotate, resize and move the sticker around before posting it to your story. 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.

Performer for the royal wedding revealed?
As you may know, Elton and Diana were close friends who worked together to raise money for AIDS research and awareness. TMZ also noted that John was slated to perform in Las Vegas this weekend, but rescheduled.

All posts shared to stories display the original poster's username. You can only re-share posts from a public Instagram account.

Not only will you be able to share your own personal photos, you'll be able to share photos from public accounts directly to your story as a sticker (via The Verge).

Do you think Instagram will ever embrace the regram?

The firm, which began testing the new feature around three months ago, is launching the feature on Android phones today.
