If you are social media marketer, blogger or a passionate social media user then you must be using Facebook and the photo-sharing app Instagram extensively. Facebook and Instagram are two big players when it comes to social media. Anyone using social media to promote their business, brand or for personal use can be found making use of these two platforms. To save you some crucial time we are here with a tutorial to let you know how to share Instagram Photos/Videos on Facebook Page or your personal account Timeline automatically.
If you wish to post the same photo/video to Facebook which you shared on Instagram then there is no need to do it manually. There is a way with which you can easily automate this process using the simple steps we have mentioned here. Following this method, as soon as you post on Instagram it will automatically be shared on Facebook page or Timeline.
So, let us get the ball rolling.
Share Instagram Photos/Videos on Facebook
I will be using the steps and screenshots from the Instagram iOS app but the method remains the same for Android.
To start with, you will have to link your Instagram account to Facebook account.
Link Instagram Account to Facebook
1. Open the Instagram app and go to your profile by tapping on the profile icon at the bottom right.
2. Under your profile, tap on the Cog icon(Settings) at the top right corner of the screen.
3. Next, select Linked Accounts under Settings in the Options screen.
4. In Share Settings screen, select Facebook.
Log in to your Facebook account and allow access to Instagram.
With this, you have linked your Instagram account to Facebook. But there is an important setting to configure if you wish to post Instagram photos to Facebook page and not your personal account timeline.
Share Instagram Photos on Facebook Page
Continuing after the 4th step above, select Facebook under Share Settings.
On the next screen, you will observe that Share to field is set to Timeline by default. In order to change it tap on it.
Now, all the pages you manage on Facebook will appear under Choose A Page section.
Select the desired page where you want the Instagram photos to be shared automatically when you post on Instagram.
Go back to save the changes.
That is all there is to it. You can always go back to sharing Instagram posts to your personal Facebook account/Timeline or other pages under the Facebook screen. It is also possible to Unlink Facebook account altogether from the same location if desired.
Please note that linking Facebook account and configuring this setting doesn’t mean that all your posts on Instagram will be shared to Facebook. It depends on your choice as there is an option to choose to post on Facebook or not while uploading every Instagram post.
If you wish to share a post on Facebook while posting on Instagram then toggle Facebook to ON. The Instagram photo/video will be shared on the Facebook page or Timeline you selected above.
