Instagram is testing a new feature that mimics other social networks.
TechCrunch reports Instagram confirmed tests of “reposts” to bring someone else’s content onto your own timeline.
It’s similar to Twitter’s retweets or the kind of reshares that are common on Tumblr and Facebook and are also in testing on TikTok.
Sharing someone else’s post for your own followers to see isn’t completely new for Instagram users.
Users have been able to share public posts for their followers but only to their Instagram Story or through direct messages.
