Social media platforms are still loved by many people, one of which is Instagram. The platform is more focused on sharing photos and videos.

Instagram also has various social interaction features, such as liking, commenting, and sending direct messages to other users.

Not only that, there is also an Instagram feature that has recently become viral, namely the airplane sign.

Maybe some people don’t know the function of the airplane sign. Through this button, you can share uploads to Instagram stories or to other social media platforms.

Once you tap on the airplane icon, a menu will appear which will give you the option to share the post to your Instagram story from any profile that allows post sharing.

When you share your Instagram post in a story, you will also have the option to make changes to the post, such as adding stickers, GIFs, locations, music, or something else.

Sharing posts to Instagram stories can be done easily. This can be done when you want to add a recent vacation photo or favorite memory to your story.

You can do this directly from your Instagram feed or directly open individual photo posts from friends’ profiles to accounts you follow.

If you try to share a post to your Instagram story from someone else’s account or your own account which is set private and does not allow sharing, the feature will not be available.

Here are two ways to share a post to your Instagram story on an Instagram account.
