Facebook-owned Instagram announced a change to its “Stories” feature which will allow users to instantly repost a “Story” they are tagged in, as theirs.

“When someone mentions you in their story, you receive a notification in your ‘Direct message’ thread with that person. Now you’ll see an option to add that content to your own story,” Instagram wrote in a blog post late on Thursday.

The feature “@mention Sharing” only applies to public accounts and is available as part of Instagram version 48 on Android and iOS.

The original poster’s username will appear automatically when a “Story” is reposted on a different account.

Users will have choices and options to scale, rotate, position and add creative tools like text and stickers to the reposted “Story”, Instagram added. (IANS)

A bug on Instagram that has been altering follower counts of users would be taken care of latest by Friday, Instagram announced in a tweet on Thursday.

“We’re expecting to have this issue resolved by 9 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST) tomorrow. We understand this is frustrating, and our team is hard at work to get things back to normal,” the Facebook-owned photo-messaging app tweeted.

Instagram confirmed the bug on Wednesday and informed via Twitter that the company was working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

The bug seemed to have been affecting Indian users as well.

Several Indian public figures, influencers and pages took to Instagram and Twitter to complain about the glitch.

The drastic drop in followers caused some users to wonder if Instagram was culling inactive and fake accounts, as part of its fight against spam, TechCrunch reported.
