Instagram is exploring removing the ability to share feed posts to Stories. The option has been disabled in select markets where Instagram is testing differences in engagement.
Users in these markets received a notification that explained: “We hear from our community that they want to see fewer posts in Stories.” According to a statement from Instagram: “We’ve seen from research that people prefer to see original photos and videos in Stories from the people they care about. The goal of our test is to better understand how people feel about this type of content and ultimately improve the Stories experience.”
Meanwhile, the option to add tweets from Twitter to Instagram Stories may soon be available.
For some of you on iOS, we’ll be testing sharing a Tweet as a sticker to Instagram too! Tap the Instagram icon in the Tweet share menu to add the Tweet as a sticker in a Story.
