Instagram is regularly updated. Developers are tirelessly working on new useful features, trying to make their creation more attractive and user-friendly. Not so long ago, the repost function finally appeared on this social network.
However, it is not always possible to use this option. Let’s look at the key methods of how to repost on Instagram to your page using the built-in functionality, and find out what to do if it is still unavailable.
Instagram repost rules
Repost is an opportunity to instantly share information, whether it be an article or another note, on any social network (in this case, on Instagram). With the help of this functionality, you can at one moment post on your page or send a friend the information copied from another user.
You can repost only if:
- the account owner has allowed this action;
- the publication is in the public domain.
Repost assumes the preservation of the original form of someone else’s content with the obligatory indication of a link to the source, Simply put, you should definitely mention the author of the publication.
Types of Instagram reposts today:
Custom Stories per post
Repost someone else’s favorite story to your Stories
You can duplicate the publication of your photo, for example, from your Stories to your feed
Add someone else’s post to your Stories
But the “from post to post” format is not yet provided in the internal functionality. But knowledge of some “tricks”, or the installation of special programs will help solve this problem.

How to repost on Instagram
Unfortunately, there is no dedicated button for repost on this social network. This simple method is used by developers to protect the authors’ rights to exclusive information. Nevertheless, there is an opportunity to share interesting photos or videos, respecting copyright.
Instagram repost: official way
At the moment, there is only one such way: through Direct. There is a button in the form of an airplane. By clicking on it, you will not only copy the photo you need or your favorite video, but add it to your Stories.
How to do it:
- Select a photo. Below it is the airplane icon, on android it will be a plus sign.
- Click on this icon and select one of the options in the drop-down window: You can choose a recipient from the list, or add to your story. Below the published post, you will see a white clickable link where the author of the post is indicated.
Instagram repost: from your Stories to post
If you want to repost some content from your Stories, then:
- Go to your story, find the content you want.
- At the top right, find three vertical dots, tap on them.
- A window will open. You need to select “Share”.
- After editing the intended post, add hashtags, stickers, if necessary – geolocation, and publish your note.
It happens that the options ” Share ”you do not see. Then you should update the application or tap on the views counter – there you will find this “eye”.
How to repost content from someone else’s Stories
This is possible on one condition: you must be noted in the publication. Every time this happens, a notification appears in your Direct. And above it there is a link “Add to History”. To share content, simply follow this link.
Using the screenshot for repost
You’ve probably noticed that the built-in functionality does not always help with repost. Of course, there is also a built-in option with a screenshot, but it is only available with an open account. If the accessibility of the account is limited by the owner, then the repost is impossible, despite your subscription.
You can get out of the situation using an alternative option – a regular screenshot from your device. Perhaps this is the easiest and most affordable way to “repost” someone else’s photo.
To do this, you need:
- Open the content you like on Insta.
- Take a screenshot as you always do.
- Edit the picture and upload it from your profile.
- Find what interests you.
- Move your cursor over the upper right corner of the post. Do you see three vertical dots there? Click on them.
- Tap Paste and copy the embed code.
- In the post editor, paste what you copied.
- Now you can paste this code anywhere – even a website, even a blog.
This option does not automatically add an author, but you have the opportunity to mark the person who they are.
Repost via code insertion
There is another possibility of publishing someone else’s content on your resource – it is a repost using the code:
If you do everything correctly, an exact copy of the publication with the specified author will appear.

Recommendations and some nuances
Many social networks immediately embed repost into their functionality, which, of course, is an attractive fact for users. Instagram has provided the ability to repost not so long ago, and, unfortunately, this function is not available for all publications.
For this reason, before reposting, especially when using third-party applications not provided by the developers, you need to do one more important step – get permission from the account owner to repost.
Otherwise, your actions may be regarded by the administration as a violation of the intellectual property of another user, which threatens to ban your account.
To get permission to repost, write to the owner in Direct, or leave a comment under the content you need, or write to the contact specified in your profile.
It is very important that you remember to indicate the authorship of the publication by linking to the owner of the publication in the post or in the description.
In general, although you have learned how to repost on Instagram to your page, do not abuse reposts, allowing subscribers to appreciate the exclusivity of your content.
