Instagram added Stories feature on its platform a few years ago. The feature is quite similar to the Snapchat Stories and allows users to post photos and videos that are only visible for 24 hours. The Stories appear at the top of the feed and can be accessed with a single tap. Users can also create Story highlights to make them visible on their profile. But do you know that you can also share your Instagram Story as a post?
The Facebook owned platform offers an option that allows you to share your Instagram Story as a post so it can be visible on your profile with a caption and option to comment. To know how to share your Instagram Story as a post, you can follow these steps:
Open Instagram app on your Android or iOS smartphone.
If you have shared an Instagram Story, tap on it. If you have not shared a Story, you upload one by swiping right from your home screen.
Once you tap on your Instagram Story, you will be able to see numerous options at the bottom of the screen. Tap on the three-dot icon at the bottom right corner of the screen.
From the menu, tap on Share as post option.
You can use the editing tool offered by Instagram and add a caption in the next section.
Once you are done, tap on the share button.
Recently, Instagram also added a new private likes feature for Stories. The feature allows you to like Instagram Stories without it reflecting in the inbox. The notifications of the private likes are also seen in the notification tab.
