Sharing content is one of the core aspects of Social media and almost every Social networking site promotes users to share content seamlessly with their network. Sites like Facebook, Twitter are very liberal about the sharing of content across users and they even have embedded features to let people share other users content.

Can we share Instagram Photos and Videos?

Instagram however, is not so lenient with sharing content since the company wants to keep it focussed on what your network has to offer rather than what your network wants you to see. This is what makes Instagram different from Facebook. Here the content is more personalized to your network than in other networking sites.

Nevertheless, often we find relatable content and we want to share it from our profile on Instagram. One of the easiest ways to share other’s photographs from Instagram is taking a screenshot of the post and cropping it before posting it on your profile. But this is not the safest option when you are reposting third-party content as Instagram is very strict with reposting original content and you could risk losing your account.
