Are you wondering if Instagram has an option to re-post stories?

Maybe it’s a college group shot or a meme you think your friends would love?
There has been a growing wish to re-post the stories on Instagram. With the introduction of the reshare option, Instagram has boomed us with a surprise.

I got to know that Instagram was testing the capability of its reshare option, but now it’s officially rolled out.

Since its introduction, regram is gaining massive popularity among business and brands. This is mainly for those brands that are dependent on Instagram contests for their marketing and promotions.

When we look at the past, there was no such way to repost other individual’s Instagram stories. But now you can re-post anything just with a few clicks.


How To Regram On Instagram

What is Regram?

To regram on Instagram means to re-share someone else’s Instagram stories or content to your business or private account.

The idea of regramming is closely related to the process of re-tweeting or reposting of tweets on Twitter. But it’s somehow more complicated than just clicking the share button that is available on Twitter.

However, there are specific guidelines and processes associated with the re-sharing of posts. Follow me and read the complete article to get all the information.

There are several methods available to regram your favorites.

• Either you do it manually, or.
• You use third-party apps.

How to regram manually?

Regramming manually is often the easiest; take the screenshot of the target content you want to re-post and click the upload button to upload.

Before posting the final content, you can either crop it or can add any filter. Don’t forget to give credits to the original content.

Use hashtags like #credit@username or homogenous statements to avoid going against any Instagram policies.

However, this only works for pictures, not for videos or audios. In the case of audios or videos, you’ll need the help of take-in third-party applications.



How to regram from third-party apps?

If you are more into videos than just pictures, this platform is definitely for you.

These apps are entirely free to use and directly connects to Instagram native applications.

They also don’t affect the quality of the video making the experience even better. Once you are ready to  launch the regram image or video, go through these simple steps:

• Tap on the three dots, available on the top right corner of your Instagram app.
• Press the option “ Copy the URL.”
• Open the regramming app
• Your copied URL will be displayed, make any changes if you want
• Tap the re-post button and open Instagram to import
• Add source credits and click on publish button, done!


Don’t just regram

Regramming may sound like a fun activity, but if you are running a business and your account mostly has content from others, this leaves a negative impact on your brand.

Also, there are several guidelines related to re-sharing. You need permission from the owner of the content before you can reshare it.

If you are primarily into regramming, consider sharing the posts twice or thrice a week only. Doing this will ensure your target audience that you always don’t hop the regramming train to entertain them.


Is the privacy intact?

Yes apparently, the privacy will remain intact! There is always a buzzed notification which declares that someone has requested to repost your story.

If you like privacy and don’t want your content to be re-circulated, there is a bunch of settings available through which you can customize your settings, and no one will be able to re-post your stories.

You can even re-edit or reshape the post you are going to regram. However, it has been suggested to maintain the original authenticity of the content as it portrays that you don’t just only copy content.

There are a plethora of applications and ways you can use to regram stories to your account.
You can even take a manual screenshot and publish it, or you can install third-party paid and free applications to do the same.

With its vast popularity and trendsetting, Regram has grasped the top position among the best Instagram content ideas for business.
