Instagram Regram feature makes it easy to share public content

Instagram is testing on an option of Regram that allows to post other accounts pictures to your Instagram story.

By "Regramming" something, users can take a public post they like and share it with their own followers without the annoying process of taking a screenshot and manually adding credit. This has also prompted them to reportedly test out another feature which warns users when people screenshots their post, kind of like what Snapchat does. In this case, hiding is not blocking, where the people who you hide stories from will be able to see your profile and posts.


Instagram users have long had to jump through hoops to share other users' content on their own accounts. Users can then overlay stickers to the post before sharing it to their Stories. Companies often test new features but don't always confirm or comment on the tests, leading to speculation that Instagram is likely to roll this option out more widely soon. Though it was rumored Instagram was testing the Regram tool for sharing the feed posts, this is the first time it is being introduced.

If you don't want your public posts to be shared in this way, there is the option to change your privacy settings. For example, it introduced a video feature known as "Go Live with" allowing the users to add friends to live broadcasts. For the past couple of months, Instagram has been quickly adding new features to its app, and it is now testing another new feature to expand Stories. This new option appears in camera under the record button. It allows the users to share just text in Stories, without requiring a photo or video.
