Want to find out how to share an Instagram post to your story? In this tutorial, I show you how to send Instagram posts to your story. This can be great if you would like to share another user’s post to all of your followers without having to DM them with the information.
Sharing Instagram posts to your story is very simple and could change the way you interact with social media in the future. It is also an excellent way of sharing another person’s genius without stealing it, as the story will be linked to their original post in a way that is simple to navigate. Don’t forget that you can also use this on your own posts if you want to reference a funny moment in the past or simply re-draw attention to a past post.

Follow the steps below to share an Instagram post (vids or pics) to your story:
- Find the post you want to share and select the send icon (looks like a paper airplane).
- A menu will appear and at the top, you should see Add Post to Your Story. This will load the story editor, and from here, you can move the post around inside your story by sliding it with your fingers or zooming in and out by squeezing your fingers together and apart. Feel free to add GIFs, text, emojis, etc.
- Select your story in the bottom-left. When you refresh your profile, you should see your new story appear! If someone clicks on your story, they will be able to open the original post on the original user’s profile.
