Do you want to link your Instagram account to your Facebook account so that you do not have to post the same story and post twice in both platforms? If yes, you have landed at the right article. We are here to help you link your Instagram account to your Facebook account or your Facebook page.
Let’s talk something about Instagram first. Instagram is a free photo and video sharing app available on Apple iOS, Android and Windows Phone. People can upload photos or videos to our service and share them with their followers or with a select group of friends. They can also view, comment and like posts shared by their friends on Instagram. Anyone 13 and older can create an account by registering an email address and selecting a username.
There are several reasons why you should consider linking Facebook and Instagram. The seamless integration between Facebook and Instagram shares the photo you shared on Instagram in Facebook as well with the completely same captions, photo quality, and hashtags. If you’re someone who enjoys getting likes on Instagram — and who doesn’t? — That will reflect on Facebook, too. Each image or video shared goes back to its source, allowing you to drive up engagement, whether from your friends or a wider audience (assuming your posts on both accounts are public).
Facebook also has a significantly larger user base than Instagram, so there’s a chance it could help you to reach more people. Even for those who are not looking for more exposure, cross-posting could allow your Facebook contacts that aren’t on Instagram to keep up with your activity. It makes it easy for you to more easily recover either account if you ever lose access to both.
While opening an Instagram account, you can either login with Facebook or sign up by giving your profile info as asked such mobile number or email, full name, username, and password. IIf you register with Facebook, you’ll be prompted to log into your Facebook account if you’re currently logged out and asked to choose a username. When your account is set up by using your Facebook account during login, your Facebook account will be automatically linked with your Instagram account.
But in case you have already opened an Instagram account without using “Login With Facebook,” there is still a way to link your Instagram and Facebook account/page. Follow the following steps in order to link your Instagram account to your Facebook account or Facebook page.
