Social media site Instagram will soon introduce a new feature which will allow its users to ‘regram’ public feed posts from other users to their own Story. You will see an option of ‘Add post to your story’ when you click on the share icon given below a post. In case you don’t want your public posts to be shared, there is an option to change your privacy settings, according to The Verge reports.
As pointed out by app developer Zachary Shakked on Twitter, when the post is added to your Story, you then have options for how you want it to appear.
You can resize it, rotate it, move it around, and there are two options for how it visually looks: one that is a cleaner design with the original user's handle underneath, and one that appears more like a traditional Instagram post you might see in your feed.
This option has long been desired by the users, as shown by how often people take screenshots on Instagram to add to their Stories.
Instagram also recently introduced a new type mode that allows for text-only pages, and added support for GIFs, with endless options of moving stickers available, thanks to integration with GIPHY, reported The Verge.
