Instagram continues to blur the line between feed posts and stories

You can now share posts from you and your friends directly to your own Story.

On Thursday, Instagram introduced a new way to share feed posts to your story.

As Instagram explains, whenever you like a post from a friend you can now share that post as a sticker to your Story for your friends and followers to see. To get started, just tap the paper airplane button below the post, just as you did before to share with a friend.

At the top, you’ll now see the option to create a story. Tap it to see the feed post as a sticker, alongside customization tools. You can rotate, scale, and move the sticker, as well.

Whenever you share posts to your Story, they will display the original poster’s username.

All posts shared to stories display the original poster’s username. When you see a post in someone’s story, you can tap it to check out the original post and see more from the person who created it.

Don’t want your posts shared? You can opt out in the settings.
