Instagram is testing feature that allows users share people's posts

Unlike Facebook and Twitter, Instagram never quite allowed users to reshare posts from others with their own accounts.

Turn your device into Flight Mode and then when you screenshot, the user won't be notified, or use Instagram from an Instagram desktop website. Until now, taking a screenshot of a Story or screen recording it was quite easy as the person (or brand) who posted that Story you were saving on your smartphone wasn't aware of your "good deeds" (that was sarcasm by the way, we didn't mean it).

The market, now in its second-longest bull run of all time, had not seen a correction for two years, an unusually long time. It could prompt the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates at a faster pace, which would act as a brake on the economy.

Until now, the platform allowed users to secretly take screenshots or screen-record Stories without being detected.

When somebody takes a screenshot of one of your "Stories", a sun-shaped symbol will appear alongside their name in the Story Views section, according to The Independent.

Instagram also warns users before switching the screenshot notifications on, by showing a message that reads: "Next time you take a screenshot or screen recording, the person who posted the story will be able to see it".

Even if Instagram users don't have access to the share feature as yet, the privacy setting is already available.

"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. It will work with accounts which are public, and is apparently being tested with only a small number of users. This is one of the latest updates Instagram is working on it's story feature. The new feature during the testing was present as a tab underneath a post when users tapped the share icon.
