It’s handy for anyone who posts regularly in both apps.

But it could mean you’re now inundated with more roles than ever before.

Reels are part of Facebook’s strategy to make it big with video in an attempt to compete with TikTok.

The short clips were published on Instagram in 2020 and then on Facebook in 2021.

Many early reels were simply cloned directly from TikTok by users.

But now Instagram has its own strong Reels community that shares clips on the app.

With the new Facebook and Instagram updates, crossposting can be done with a single tap when sharing a reel.

Meta – which owns Facebook and Instagram – is also launching a new “Add Yours” sticker for Reels.

This allows users to respond to a reel with their own video.

The feature was added for Instagram Stories last year.

But it’s now finally possible to use it for reels too.

This works across Instagram and Facebook, including using the crosspost feature.

Meta recently came under fire for revealing a future focus on Reels and content from accounts you don’t follow.

Billionaire owner Mark Zuckerberg was forced to reverse growth in recommended posts and full-screen videos in the wake of Kylie Jenner Kim Kardashian told it to “stop trying to be TikTok.”

“I’m glad we took a risk – if we don’t fail every once in a while, we’re not thinking big enough or bold enough,” Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri told Instagram platformer.

“But we definitely have to take a big step back and regroup.

“[When] we learned a lot, then we come back with some new idea or iteration.

“So we’re going to work through that.

“With the new feed designs, people are frustrated and the usage data isn’t great.

“So I think we need to take a big step back, regroup and figure out how we want to move forward.”
