No, it's not a "regram" option. Sorry!  But today, Instagram is officially launching a new feature that will allow users to re-share someone's Instagram post with their friends via Instagram Stories - something it confirmed was in testing earlier this year. The idea with the new re-sharing option is to give users a way to add their own commentary or react to a post, without repurposing it as their own - the way a regram (reposting to feed) feature would have permitted.

For example, you can now re-share something you saw posted by a brand or influencer on Instagram that you like, or add your own comments on top of a funny meme, or even tag a friend on a post you want them to see.

In fact, tagging friends through Instagram comments had become so common on the social network over the years, that it rolled out a way to send posts via Direct Messaging as an alternative. The new re-sharing option now gives users a third way to get their friends' attention.

Re-sharing can only be done from public Instagram accounts, Instagram says. If you want to run a public account, but don't want people re-sharing your posts, you can opt to turn off the new feature in the app's settings.

To share an Instagram feed post to your Story, you first tap the paper airplane icon - the same as you tap today to send a post through direct messaging. However, you'll now see a new option to create a Story as well. Tap this to see the feed post appear as a sticker of sorts with a customized background,
