Reposting a User’s Instagram Story
Before you can reshare someone’s Instagram story, you must be tagged or named in the story itself. When someone posts a story and mentions you in it, you’ll get a notification in Direct Messages. When you open the message, you will see the story and the “Add This To Your Story” option on it.
Just tap on it and their stories will now look like a sticker on your screen. You can then resize or move it. Simply pinch the screen to resize it or tap to move it. You also have options to spice up this story by adding stickers, text or any design you like.
Once you’re satisfied, simply tap “Your Story” in the lower left corner of your screen and you’re off! The post is now also available on your Instagram story. When your followers see this post, they will also see the username of the original creator. They can tap on it and explore the profile.
Reposting a User’s Instagram Post
You may see a post in your feed that you really like and would like to have in your own story. You’ll be glad to know that it’s also possible to repost someone’s post to your Instagram story.
The steps are very easy:
- Look for a paper airplane icon at the bottom of a post.
- Tap on it.
- Next to your profile picture, you will see the phrase “Add Post to Your Story”. Click on it.
- The post will be displayed as a sticker on your screen.
- You can resize, move or add designs.
- When you’re done, tap “Your Story”.
Alternatively, you can send this post to some people and not publish it in your story. So instead of tapping “Add Post to Your Story”, search for the list of contacts. Just click “Submit” next to their photos; The shipment will only be sent to them.
Note that if the profile of the person whose post you want to share is private, you cannot repost it to your Instagram story. You will be able to send the post to other people who can see it only if they are friends with that person.
Repost a Video to Instagram Stories

You will have the option to share it on your story or send it to individual people. Tap “Add Post to Your Story” if you want to share it to your story.

By clicking on it, they will be redirected to the original post. The video starts automatically so they can see the content you reposted.
If you don’t want to republish the story right away but still want to save it for future use, there are options for that too. You know how stories last 24 hours, right? All you have to do during this time is to take a screenshot of the story you find interesting and use it whenever you need to.

- Open your Instagram.
- Find the Camera icon in the upper left corner of the screen and tap it.

- Find the screenshot you need and click it.
