All social networks have a way to share the memes, photos, and more of other members, except Instagram. You can tag people in the comments so they can see a post that someone else shared, but there is no way to share the post on your own feed so that everyone can see it. However, even if the platform does not provide you with an in-app tool to share posts, you can still do so. Here we tell you how to make a repost on Instagram in a few simple steps.
How to make a repost on Instagram
It is almost a law: if there is a free niche in the app stores, some developer will try to fill it. As such, it should come as no surprise that there are several applications available that allow users to republish content on Instagram, such as Repost for Instagram and Insta Repost . These apps tend to be free (with advertisements), and they are fairly easy to use. To exemplify it, we will use the first one mentioned, Repost for Instagram.
Step 1 : Once you have downloaded and installed Repost for Instagram, open your Instagram. Find a post you want to share and tap the three dots sign in the upper right corner.
Step 2 : Tap on Copy link option .
Step 3 : Open Repost for Instagram on your phone. You should see the Instagram post that you copied in the previous step.
Step 4 : When you are ready to republish the image, tap on it, adjust the variables you want, and tap on Forward . And ready! It is done!
There are many reasons for not wanting to install a repost application . Maybe you don’t want to clutter up your phone’s storage with more apps or you don’t like the idea of giving another app access to your photos and files. Either way, if you don’t want to use a sharing app, you can always take a screenshot of the post you like and post it yourself. It may not be that “fancy”, but it works quite well.
The process for taking a screenshot differs from platform to platform. In Digital Trends in Spanish we have guides on how to take screenshots on both an iPhone and an Android phone . Once the capture is done, simply go to Instagram and upload it as you would with any other photo or video from your camera. Note that you should ask the creator of the post for permission before republishing – be sure to tag it and give it credit for its work.
