If you’ve uploaded a picture to your Instagram story of you and your friends, and you want to keep them in the loop, you are able to tag them using an in-built feature. Here’s how to do so.

Instagram is one of the biggest social media platforms out there, with millions of users regularly uploading and reacting to pictures, videos, and more, via the app.

People are able to upload pictures and videos as standard posts, but they can also do the same thing using the popular stories features.

Stories are posts that disappear 24 hours after initially being published, and can be a great way to share snaps or updates that you don’t want to share as a proper post on your account.

You may have seen people tagging other accounts when they post on their story, whether that’s to identify who exactly is in the picture, or to get someone’s attention. Here’s how to do the same.
