why can't i share a post to my instagram story
Instagram includes many interesting features, among them the ability to share Instagram posts from the feed to your story directly via the button below each image.

this is a great feature, however, some Instagram users when clicking on the share on a post they don't have this option “Add Post to your Story”.

Why i can't share posts to my instagram story?

There are 3 reasons for this problem, let's check it:

account type:

Add the post to your story option is available for "Public accounts" only. If you are trying to post a post from a “Private Account”, you will not see the Post and Post button below the post.Try sharing from another public account, or change your account type.

Share Permission:

If that account is public, another thing that could be the reason for disappearing the add sharing to the story option, which is the sharing permission.

The person who shares the post may have disabled the option that allows others to share his posts to Story. so check out the popular public accounts and then check whether the post button is present or not, and if it exists, click on it Make sure you have the option "Add Post to your Story".
