Hi! Instagram Stories have been gaining more prominence on the platform over time, becoming the most used type of post, even more than the classic post. Instagram Stories were born from Snapchat, the platform that Mark Zuckerberg had tried to buy on more than one occasion but without success. They are also a fundamental element for both followers and users who publish them. Currently, they are often used by influencers, to gain more followers and by companies that use them for their advertising activities. Sharing Stories is not always easy because it is necessary to meet certain requirements. That’s why in this tutorial we will teach you how to share someone else’s, Instagram Story.
How to create an Instagram Story
Instagram Stories are audiovisual posts that last exactly 24 hours on the user’s profile. They can include photos, videos, lyrics, stickers, GIFs, emoticons, etc. As this feature and the application improve, more and more options are possible to add to Instagram Stories. Currently, Stories have almost nothing to do with the original Snapchat function.
Tap the “+” sign at the top of the screen. Then in the menu that opens, select Story.
Next, the camera app will open where you can take a photo or video to share later. You also have the option to access your device’s gallery and share a photo or video you already have.
After that, once the picture or video is done you can add music, effects, emojis, GIFs or draw a picture. Then tap the “Share to” button
Finally, when you have your story decorated to your liking, you must click on the “Share” button to publish it on your profile.
How to share someone else’s story
Unfortunately, there is no way to share someone else’s story on your feed, unless they mention you in their story. There are many apps in the Playstore that promise to do this, but what they seek to do is to collect your data. You should be careful with these apps. In case you want to share someone else’s story in your feed but they have not mentioned you. If it is an image you can take a screenshot. This would be the simplest method, but not the most effective. There are web pages and apps that will allow you to download the content of the Stories of any user of this one. This way you can then share them in your stories or your feed. Giving their respective credits to their author.
Go to Instagram and open the Story you want to share.
