How to Repost on Instagram
Looking to share some content? Here's how to repost on Instagram
If there is one word at the heart of social media, it’s sharing. When people post something on social media, they want people — whether their close friends and family, or the entire world — to see it. Photos, videos, and lame jokes flow freely, which makes it all the stranger that Instagram doesn’t have an easy, readily apparent way to share content you find in your feed.
If you really want to learn how to repost on Instagram (an action we omitted from our roundup of some of the more popular Instagram tips and tricks), there are a couple things you can try. Specifically, there are two methods: Using a dedicated reposting app or taking a screenshot and sharing that on Instagram as you would any other image.
USE A REPOSTING APP
App stores abhor vacuums. If there is a niche to be filled, some app developer will try to fill it. It should come as no surprise, then, that there are several apps available that allow users to repost content on Instagram, such as Repost for Instagram and Insta Repost. These apps tend to be free — with ads — and are pretty straightforward. Here’s how the process works with Repost for Instagram, but other apps will be similar.
Once you’ve downloaded and installed Repost for Instagram, first launch Instagram. Find a post you want to repost and tap the three-dots button in upper-right corner.
Tap the button labeled Copy Link.
Now, open up Repost for Instagram on your phone and you should see the latest Instagram post you copied in the above step.
When you’re ready to repost the image, tap on it, adjust the variables to where you want them, and tap the repost button. Boom. You’re finished!
Remember, you can use Instagram’s Save Post feature to keep track of posts you want to repost. To save a post, tap the flag icon on the right side underneath the image and create a place to put the post using the on-screen instructions. To find your saved posts, go to your profile and select Menu > Saved. All of your saved posts will be categorized into little folders.
