How To Share An Instagram Post To Your Instagram Story

June 13, 2018

If you’re like me, whenever you hit that “Share” button you know the clock is ticking! You have 10 minutes(rumor has it) to get your followers to see your post and interact with it before Instagram deems it “unworthy” and buries it. So you take a screenshot of your feed and add it to your Instagram story with an irresistible call-to-action Gif or sticker and hope people figure out how to get to your IG feed from your story (most don’t!).

There’s a new feature in Town

Now you can share your post directly to your story! When people tap on the image, a little bubble pops up and says “see post.” Easy peasy!

But something I really hate is when I search something like “How to share my Instagram post to my Instagram story” on Google and the articles are ten MILLION words long! When in reality, it’s very simple! So I’ll get to the point here :)
