Instagram is telling users when people screenshot or screen record their Stories

Instagram testing out a resharing feature on Stories                   By Ida Torres

It looks like the feature is now available to a small number of users with a wider rollout expected soon. This is one of the latest updates Instagram is working on it's story feature.

Instagram users may soon be able to share Instagram posts and upload it to their Stories.

The move, which serves as a good news to privacy-conscious users, brings Instagram Stories even more in line with Snapchat. Since people tend to screenshot the content of others and add it to their Stories anyway, this would be an appropriate tool for Instagram users to take full advantage of.

Instagram will reportedly give a privacy option to users as well, which will let people turn off the ability for others to share their posts. After all, it is common for people to share the posts of others by taking screenshots and then posting them. You'll find an "Allow Others to Reshare" toggle after hitting the Menu icon on your Profile and scrolling through the available options.

The feature, which will notify users whenever someone has screengrabbed their "Stories", is yet to be enabled by Instagram and is still in development.

After adding someone else's post to your story, you can resize, rotate, and reposition the photo in your Story.

"Instagram purposefully lacks a "Regram" button to promote original sharing, but it's easing up on that philosophy when it comes to Stories", TechCrunch writes.
