Instagram to be Testing a New ‘Regram’ Feature For All its Users

Posted by on

Haven’t you always looked at a post on Instagram and wondered how can I repost it? On twitter there is a retweet option, also facebook has a share icon. But on Instagram there is nothing. In order to repost a post, you have to use a third-party app or you either had to screengrab it or bookmark it and keep them saved. And then you can republish the content. For years we have been waiting for a new native share feature.

And according to reports that are doing the rounds there might be a possibility of such a new feature in the near future. The feature is known as “seamless sharing” internally and it introduces a new ‘share to feed’ option that appears in the top right of every post. The reshared posts appear very much like retweets with the original content nestled below the name of the person who shared it.

These are the views of the Co-Founder Systrom of Instagram on this new feature:

”We debate the re-share thing a lot. Because obviously people love the idea of re-sharing content that they find. Instagram is full of awesome stuff. In fact, one of the main ways people communicate over Instagram Direct now is actually they share content that they find on Instagram. So that’s been a debate over and over again. But really that decision is about keeping your feed focused on the people you know rather than the people you know finding other stuff for you to see. And I think that is more of a testament of our focus on authenticity and on the connections you actually have than about anything else.”

There is no confirmation as to when and where this new feature comes out, it’s not even certain that it will be introduced, but we sure are keeping our hopes high.
