Instagram is one of the most popular photo and video-sharing platforms. We have either heard of it or used it ourselves, but we know that it has many possibilities when interacting or sharing content. You can interact with other people’s posts and stories by replying or commenting on them but you can also repost them. In this article, you will learn how to do it.
How Do You Repost on Instagram?
When it comes to reposting, we need to clear some things up. Instagram does not let you repost anything permanently, when you repost, it will stay up for 24 hours and that’s it. You can decide to make a post about it and make it stay there permanently but if you repost it, after 24 hours it’s gone.
a) Through the paper airplane symbol
Instagram has recently added a feature that allows you to repost very easily. All you have to do is click on the little icon next to the icon for commenting on someone’s post. It looks like a paper airplane symbol. When you click on it, you will see the possibility to share it with your Story. Click on that and it will take you to your Story where you will be able to edit that post meaning you can resize it, add some text or stickers or even drag some filters through it.
b) Through a screenshot
Reposting it using this icon we’ve mentioned in the paragraph before is definitely the easiest way but if for some reason you can’t repost it using that icon, you can switch to screenshot. It works on a very simple principle – find a post you like, screenshot it and there you have it. Open Instagram, click on your Story, and find the recent screenshot you’ve made in your Gallery, the process is the same as it was for the last option. Edit it however you want and when you’re content with the result, post it! You can decide to repost it as a Post, Story, Reel, or whichever other option you’re feeling at the moment.
c) Through apps
You can also decide to use different apps to repost content on Instagram. You can use apps such as Repost or Reposta which are both free to use. The only thing you have to do is find what you want to repost and copy the link of it into one of these apps. The next step is positioning the attribution mark and sending it back to Instagram. It is a fairly easy process with just a few steps.
