Why can’t I share Instagram stories?

Why can’t I share Instagram stories?

“I can’t share stories.” It’s one of the most tragic phrases of this year, and it stalks groups of friends from all over the world. But don’t worry, because with this post we are going to solve it ????

How to share stories on Instagram

To share a story in which you have been mentioned, you must follow this process.

1 – In a story, use the mention sticker or directly type “@tunombre”. Several suggestions will appear, in which you will have to choose the profile you want.

2 – Publish it in “Your story”.

3 – In the direct messages of the mentioned person will notify them that they have been mentioned.

4 – In that KO you will have the option to share in your story!

Just like that? Not at all, because it does not always appear in your messages, or it is not possible to share it. Let’s look at other solutions.

Activate “Allow sharing” in Instagram

The most typical reason is that the person who publishes the original story has not allowed their followers to share.

To mark it, go to your profile -> Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Story Controls -> Shared Content.

There you have several options:

Hide your stories to contacts

Choose your list of best friends to show stories only to them. Choose who can respond to your stories (for top influencers) , Save the publications in the archive or gallery.

Shared content.

In the latter is where you have to check the box to make it blue. In other words, your contacts can share your stories if you mention them. Other reasons why you can’t share Instagram stories

Private account in Instagram

Even if they have allowed sharing in their settings, it is not possible to share user stories with private accounts.

You are not mutual followers in Instagram

The mention may have reached the inbox, but it is in the message request panel.

Instagram’s history has expired

It is also possible that the story cannot be shared… because 24 hours have passed and it has disappeared.

You were wrong to mention the user of Instagram

Make sure that everything is well written and that you have chosen the right profile while making the mention. It is possible that if you did not have an internet connection at the time of publication, the profiles were not loaded correctly.

The Instagram application is not up to date

It is not a common cause, but it has happened that the application was not updated, or that even the smartphone model does not allow it.

Despite following these steps, we have asked several influencers and some of them are still unable to share stories in which they have been mentioned, while others mentioned in that same publication have.

It’s something that happens sometimes, and we don’t find the cause despite all the tests we’ve done. If you want to know more about social media visit our instagram influencers page.

We hope that Instagram will solve it very soon!
