If you want to repost on Instagram, you'll find isn't as easy as on other social networks. Unlike retweeting on Twitter or sharing on Facebook, you can't just click to repost as Instagram doesn't have a repost function. There are ways to do it, but there are a few things to keep in mind. This article will take you through how to repost, and the things to watch out for.

Why would you want to repost someone else's content? Well, reposting is a great way to shake up your feed, as well as take the pressure off you to come up with original posts. It's also a fantastic way to show that you appreciate the work of your peers. But it's crucial to remember that from a legal point of view, reposting other people's content is a grey area, and you need to have the right permissions before you do it.
