When you tap on that, Instagram will lead you to your Stories.

Let's say you stumble upon an interesting post when you are scrolling through your Instagram feed.

That said, in addition to sharing posts from your account, you can only share posts from other accounts that are public. You can just add your own stickers, or text or doodle, whatever you wish to, and you are ready to post. Within your Stories, you can rotate, scale or move the sticker around and then tap on it to explore other styles.
