The social media platform Instagram is testing a new update, according to many sources. Users all over the world will receive combined reactions to this latest update. Instagram users will be unable to share or re-share their posts from feeds as stories with this update. The platform basically prohibits users from posting videos and posts from feeds to Stories.
Instagram announced ‘Testing a Shift to Sharing Stories’ via a notification banner, according to a tweet by social media specialist Matt Navarra.
Furthermore, the declaration of the notification says,
“We hear from our community that they want to see fewer feed posts in stories. During this test, you won’t be able to add a feed post to your story.”
The notification for the variability in story-sharing was previously discussed in many countries selected. In their story, we checked whether users could share their feed posts, and the role is, however, working in Pakistan. Nevertheless, the feature has been disabled in countries like China, Thailand, and Argentina since December 2020, according to Navarra’s tweet.
In addition, if this new feature is also disabled in India, small businesses would be a big surprise because they relied on individuals posting and seeing their goods via feed posts shared as stories.
In addition, the Facebook-owned company is releasing a “recently deleted” feature to help users restore posts for up to one month or erase them permanently. To use the feature, users will need to verify that they are the owner of the Instagram account via email or text.
In fact, by going to ‘settings’ on the app followed by ‘account’ and later ‘recently removed,’ users can get this latest feature.
