How to Connect Instagram to Your Facebook Page?
Connecting Instagram account to your Facebook page isn’t a mammoth task as you have done three-fourth of the same following the above section.
That means you need to go through all the seven steps I have shared in order to connect your Instagram account with the Facebook page.
Step 9: In case you have gone back, click on the gear-like button from the app homepage to access the Options panel.
Step 10: Then, scroll down a bit to see Connected accounts under Settings. Given that you have linked both your Facebook and Instagram accounts together, you can see Facebook icon in blue, unlike other services.
Tap on the same to manage the connection.
Step 11: You will see two options on the page followed then; Share to and, Unlink. The latter is used to cease the connection. Apparently, the former is what we need here.
Step 12: You can either choose your timeline or the pages you are administrating. By default, every Instagram update is shared with your timeline until you alter the settings.
As we need to keep on posting updates to a page, you have to choose one from any of the pages given right there.
That’s it. From now on, you will see every image you post on Instagram will simultaneously be shared on Facebook as well. As I said earlier, people get to know your Instagram account and obviously, it will increase your followers as well.
If you use one Instagram account for both personal and business use, I recommend you shouldn’t connect it to Facebook because back-to-back updates from Instagram may look spammy on your timeline or an FB page.
Better you maintain two Insta accounts for business and personal use. And, it will not create any issue even after you connect to Facebook.
