Convert Instagram posts into Stories: it’s that simple
Instagram has added a new option in its Android application that allows convert Instagram posts into Stories. The option is already available in the Google operating system and in the immediate future it will be in the app for iOS, although the screenshots tell another story. The process, as you can see, is very simple, which will benefit its use on a recurring basis.
When we find a publication that we want to turn into Storie (it does not matter if it is something uploaded by us or by someone else), we must click on the button Send to (represented by the paper airplane). From now on, the first option will be called Add post to your story, and below will continue to appear the rest of the people with whom we regularly contact and who are interested in sending the post. To ensure that the authorship remains with each person, the username will be visible when sharing the post.
Bringing content to where people are
This movement on the part of Instagram makes a lot of sense if we take into account the behavior of the people who use the application day after day. Many people who use this social network to act as content creators know that most people pay more attention to Stories by their filters than to the main feed. Because of this, it’s easy to see screenshots of photos uploaded to the main feed being shared in Stories. The new method simplifies the process.
In addition, the way of presenting it invites in turn to see the photo in real size in the main feed instead of in the Stories. Therefore, the traffic is redirected back to the profile of each person, becoming in turn «I like” if the photo is good. People’s attention once again shifts from ephemeral content to content that remains, closing the circle of what was once this social network before dedicating itself to copying most of the functions that it popularized Snapchat.
