How to repost on Instagram
You started using Instagram recently and while you were looking at the feed you saw a photo or video posted by a person’s profile, you noticed the absence of the post’s share icon, to understand, the famous “Share” button that we find on Facebook.
You must know that Instagram does not allow sharing of posts published by other people , surely, being used to Facebook and other social networks that allow the operation, it will seem strange not to have this possibility.
The sharing function is what made most social networks famous, but the creators of Instagram have deliberately decided not to integrate it on the platform to encourage the creation and distribution of always new and original content.
Although there is no native function and going against Instagram’s guidelines and conditions of use, you should know that it is possible to overcome this limit, using the Repost offered by some specially developed applications.
To overcome the limits on re-sharing content on Instagram , you need to install third-party applications that allow you to take the original content seen on the feed and share it on your profile.
Before proceeding with the reading, we remind you that using these applications means violating the rules on the conditions of use of the social network, so in case of checks, you may have a temporary ban or the permanent closure of the account, for this reason, be very careful what you decide to publish.
Major problems can arise from sharing content that is protected by copyright, these attract more attention and could push Instagram to take serious action on your account.
The Instagram repost applications are available for free on the Android app stores and iOS, very easy to install and use, there are dozens of them but the most famous are certainly two: Repost for Instagram and InstaRepost For Instagram , the latter only available for iOS.
