Darra Sargent started this petition to Instagram

Instagram is rolling out a trial run in some areas that will prevent users from being able to share feed posts to their stories. This is a terrible "update". So many instagram users utilize this feature to share ideas, art, social issues, petitions, to raise awareness for causes, to promote small businesses, to educate their following, SO MANY THINGS. I am an artist and one reasons that this update worries me so much is the fact that people will not stop sharing art to their stories, they will just screenshot it instead. The share to stories button automatically links back to the artist who created the piece and gives them credit for their work. With this feature gone artists will see a lot more intellectual property violations and will further have to watermark it to make sure they're getting credit for their work. I also make a lot of art about social issues and important events. The share to story feature allows people to share that piece to their story to spread the message, and I often share posts by other creators to spread that education my followers on something that I haven't talked about on my feed. Not to mention it will greatly impact being able to grow on the platform since story shares are the best way to do so right now, which would impact many small businesses who rely on instagram to feed their families in the middle of a pandemic. This update will effect all instagram users, and it will prevent a lot of important information from getting spread which is way more important then someone being a little annoyed because they saw the same post twice in one day. Please instagram, think about the educators, artists, activists and small business owners who use your platform and do not remove this feature.
