Instagram will let you repost stories you are mentioned in

Instagram now lets you instantly repost stories you’re mentioned in to your own story

Instagram has revealed a minor modification to Stories. Now, when somebody mentions you in their story, you'll have the option to quickly repost it, adding the picture or video to your very own story.

The feature, called @mention Sharing, is started when you tag a user in your Story. A pop-up will appear saying, "Mentioned users may repost this story for 24 hours." The person discussed will get a notice through direct message that they were discussed with a link to "Add This to Your Story." Just tap and the story will be displayed in a sneak peek where it can be changed or have text, stickers, and more added to it. When added, followers will see the initial poster's username, and they can tap it to see that person's profile.

This upgrade only applies to public accounts and is offered now as part of Instagram version 48 on Android and iOS.
