Selfie of friendship.

Reposting Instagram stories is a great way to keep your audience engaged and tell a larger brand story. It also helps you gain credibility through user-generated content. Reposting is a great way for your community to show their love.

However, it’s not always easy to find the right answer to the question “How to repost an Instagram story?” You might have seen a story by someone you don’t know, but you would love to share it. Or it could be a private account and your business friend forgot to tag you. It’s possible to repost Instagram stories even when these situations exist.

These are quick hacks to help you repost your story even if it hasn’t been tag.


How to direct repost a photo to your Instagram Stories


If you haven’t tagged, it’s not possible to repost another person’s story. However, we will soon show you a workaround! The good news is that you can easily share someone’s story feed posts on your own page. Click on the airplane beside the comment bubble to share a great post with your followers. You’ll see a list of people that you can send the post to. Or, click on “Add post to my story” and you’ll be in Instagram editing mode.



directly repost a post to your Instagram storiesThere are two options. You have two options. One, you can repost it in a minimalist-looking tale. Two, you can tap on an image to see a preview of your post and the beginning of the caption. It will tag the person whose content it is that you are resharing, regardless of which option you choose. It is possible to add a larger tag or a ‘mention sticker’. It is a good idea, and the original account will be more likely to repost your post (so meta!)

This strategy can be used to repost your own feed posts to your story. You can do the same thing: just go to your feed post and tap on the little airplane icon to repost it in your stories. This is an easy way to increase your feed’s reach and potential audience. Stories are more popular than feeds, so this is a great way to maximize the reach of your feed post.

However, there is one caveat: you cannot repost a story until the author’s story is visible (within 24 hours). You’ll need to be quick!


How to repost a story when you’re not tagged

What about when you find a story that you like but are not tagged? Maybe you have a favorite story that you want to repost, but you don’t know when — and you would like to add it to your content schedule at a later date.

Although stories are lost after 24 hours, you can still take screenshots. The process of taking a screenshot will vary depending on the smartphone you are using, but you can usually do it by pressing a button on your phone. The screenshot will be saved to your phone. 

If you have a brief video that you wish to keep, press the record button on your smartphone (depending on your device) and take a screen recording. Then, upload it as soon as it is clear. If you plan to use any of these strategies, you should DM the person whose content you are sharing to get their permission. It’s also a good idea to tag them in your post!
