Another great move from the Facebook-owned media sharing app ‘Instagram’ as they announced new added features ( new change rather) to its Stories feature that will now allow users to instantly repost a Story they are tagged in as theirs.
On Thursday, instagram noted “When someone mentions you in their story, you receive a notification in your ‘Direct message’ thread with that person. Now you’ll see an option to add that content to your own story.”
Some users might not have been able to see or make use of this @ feature in their stories and the reason is because they are using the app outdated version. The feature “@mention Sharing” only applies to public accounts and is available starting from version 48 and later on for both Android and iOS.
The original poster’s username will appear automatically when a “Story” is reposted on a different account.
Users will have choices and options to scale, rotate, position and add creative tools like text and stickers to the reposted “Story”, Instagram added.
