Instagram is letting users share posts directly to their stories
The line between Instagram posts and stories is getting even thinner today. There’s a new feature that will let users share posts — both from their own account and from public accounts they follow — directly to their story as a sticker.
Instagram imagines the feature will be used to help promote friends and brands you like on your own story, making it easier to share, say, a band’s tour announcement with your followers. (It’s easier than saving or screenshotting the image itself since people are going to do it anyway.) Any post that you share to your story still will include the original poster’s username, along with a link back to the original post.
Users will be able to share stories by tapping the same paper airplane...
