Can we repost reels on Instagram?

Answered by Edward Huber

We can repost Reels on Instagram, and it’s actually quite simple to do so. Reels is one of the newest features on Instagram, and it has quickly gained popularity for its ability to generate high engagement. If you come across a Reel that you find interesting or want to share with your followers, you can easily repost it on your own Story.

To repost a Reel, you first need to open the full-view of the Reel by tapping on it. Once the Reel is open, you will see various icons at the bottom of the screen. Look for the paper airplane icon, which is the direct messaging icon. Tap on it, and a menu will pop up with different sharing options.

From the sharing options, select “Add post to your story.” This will allow you to share the Reel on your own Instagram Story. Once you’ve selected this option, you can customize the appearance of the reposted Reel on your Story by adding stickers, text, or other creative elements. You can also write a caption or add other context to the Story to engage your audience and encourage them to interact with the Reel.

After you’re done customizing the reposted Reel, simply tap the “Your Story” button to publish it on your Instagram Story. Your followers will then be able to view the Reel and interact with it, just like they would with any other Story content.

Reposting Reels on your Story can be a great way to share interesting and entertaining content with your audience. It allows you to leverage the high engagement that Reels typically receive and increase your own visibility and reach on Instagram. So if you come across a Reel that you think your followers would enjoy, don’t hesitate to share it on your Story and let the engagement flow in.

I personally find this feature quite useful, as it allows me to easily share Reels that I find inspiring or entertaining with my own followers. It helps me keep my Story content fresh and engaging, and it also gives me an opportunity to introduce my audience to new creators and content on Instagram.

Reposting Reels on Instagram is a simple yet effective way to boost engagement and keep your Story content interesting. So go ahead and give it a try!
