Stories have ended up becoming one of the most popular features of Instagram. One of the keys to their success is the content posted within them. This is usually more natural, improvised, and personal. As with photographs and videos, Instagram lets you include stories of others within your own. In this article, we explain in detail what the steps to do so are.

Before you start, you should know that you can only post a story about someone else if you have been tagged in it. When this happens, access the direct messages and select the conversation of the user who has tagged you.

As you can see, the process of creating the story is the same. Therefore, you have all the options of the Instagram story editor at your disposal. You can add the elements you want, such as images, animations, music, or text. Automatically, the user who created the original story will be tagged and notified that you have posted their story via a direct message.
