Why can't I share stories in Instagram?

While the story sharing functionality in which we have been tagged is available on Instagram several months ago, there are still users who cannot use this functionality.
Several users have reported that although they receive the message with notification informing that they were tagged in a Storie, in that message they do not have the action to be able to publish the content in their history therefore they can not share in Instagram stories.
This lack of functionality is unfortunately sometimes very common in Instagram where certain users can not enjoy all the tools that the App but here we leave some steps that can be used to correct it.

1) Verify that the application of Instagram is updated, enter your Play store or App Store and look for Instagram if you see the option to update do it and if you do not give the option means that your app is already updated
2) If after upgrading you do not appear the option to share history of Instagram, you can try deleting the cache of the application, this is done from the menu of settings or configuration of your computer, you must look for the list of applications select "Instagram" and Click on "Clear Data cache"
