Instagram says it is exploring a tool for reposts.


 Users may soon be able to repost other people's posts or Reels on Instagram thanks to a new functionality. Social media analyst Matt Navarra saw it and tweeted a screenshot of it. It displayed the "Reposts" tab on the mew profile. Later, Instagram acknowledged testing the function in a statement to TechCrunch.

The most popular method for reposting or sharing posts right now is to include them in a 24-hour-old article. Instead of sending reposted content to stories, this new "Repost" option would send it to the main feeds of a user's followers. Each of Twitter and TikTok's related features is unique.

The repost option is intended to "recommend a post your friends may enjoy by reposting it to a feed or story," according to the shared screenshots. Followers will be able to respond to the reposted content by sending a message to the reposter by using the Repost tool, which is located in the share menu of a post or reel. Of the meanwhile, followers can view the reposts tab in a user's profile. Users can have the option to edit a repost before sharing it.

Instagram's original goal of being a forum for sharing photographs has been put on hold as of late due to a significant push into Reels and video content, as well as a prior push into the store function. in efforts to compete with the intense popularity of short-video platform TikTok.
