Have you ever thought about doing a little self-promotion on Instagram? It's incredibly easy these days. All you have to do is share your Instagram posts with your Story. Interestingly, Instagram was originally just testing the feature, and a select group of users were allowed to use it. But since the feature was so well received, it was added to every Instagram feed. If you want to learn how to share your IG posts with your Story and read some additional tips and tricks, read on.


The option to reshare posts in history is now an essential feature on Instagram. You need only the Instagram app for Android or iOS, depending on the device you are using. Make sure to use the links provided to update the app to the latest version.

The great thing about this feature is that it now gives proper credit to the original poster. You used to only be able to see the poster's IG username at the bottom of the post, but now the link is interactive in your Story.

This means that anyone viewing your Story and clicking the embedded link will be taken to the original post by the person who first uploaded it. Why is that important? Imagine creating quality content, no matter what the content (crisp landscape images, a funny joke, or even a song), and not getting credit for it.

I'm not sure about you, but I get pretty pissed off when someone steals my jokes and pretends they made them up first. The same is for any other type of content on Instagram. Using someone else's content is only fair if you give credit to the author (or poster).

Of course, if you choose to share your posts, it's pretty obvious who the poster was.

Sharing Instagram posts to Stories

There is just one more thing you need to know before sharing your Instagram posts on your Story. To share posts freely and let others share your posts, make sure your profile settings allow it. To enable Story resharing:

  1. Sign in to Instagram.
  2. Go to your profile (bottom right of the screen).
  3. Tap the hamburger menu and select Settings at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Then tap Privacy.
  5. Then tap Story.
  6. Scroll down and make sure Allow stories to be reshared is checked.


Following these steps, you can finally share your post in your Story on Instagram:

  1. Launch Instagram on your device.
  2. Go to your profile and type in a post you want to share.
  3. Then tap the Share option, which looks like a folded paper airplane.

Tap Add post to your Story.

Feel free to edit the post if you'd like; this is optional. Press Send to and tap Share next to your Story.


Although this was a guide on how to share your posts on your Instagram story, note that you can do the same with other people's posts. Just go to their profile, select a post they made and follow the same steps as before.

If the share button appears gray under their posts and you can't select it, it means that the Instagram user you want to share again has blocked this option.
