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)

Facebook-owned photo sharing platform Instagram on Tuesday announced their latest tools to help combat bullying, including a new way to identify and report bullying in photos.

The company is using Machine Learning (ML) technology to proactively detect bullying in photos and their captions.

“This change will help us identify and remove significantly more bullying — and it’s a crucial next step since many people who experience or observe bullying don’t report it,” Adam Mosseri, Head of Instagram, said in a blogpost.

“It will also help us protect our youngest community members since teens experience higher rates of bullying online than others,” Mosseri added.

Recently, Mosseri replaced Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger as the new head who abruptly announced their departure in September.

The new technology has begun to roll out and will continue to in the coming weeks.
