Instagram: how to share stories in which you were mentioned

Instagram now lets you share a story in which you've been tagged in your own Stories. When mentioned, you receive a direct notification about the markup, accompanied by a share button. The shared story is displayed as an adhesive on the platform, allowing the image to be resized and repositioned on the screen.

Available in the iPhone app (iOS) and Android phones, the function retains the avatar and the name of the user that made the mark in the new post. In this way, it is possible to know the original author of the shared publication. Here's how to use the feature to share stories you've been tagged with on Instagram.
