Connect an Instagram account to a Facebook Page
Facebook owns Instagram, and they’ve streamlined workflows between the two social networks to make it easy to manage your business’ social presence. Facebook requires you to have an Instagram business profile connected to a Facebook Page to enable most Instagram functions in Hootsuite (for example, direct publishing, engaging with your audience in streams, and analytics). If you do not have a business profile, see Convert an Instagram personal profile to a business profile.
- To learn more about the differences between Instagram profiles, see Overview of Instagram profiles.
- To learn more about the benefits of connecting your Instagram profile to a Facebook Page, see the Facebook help article What happens when I connect my Facebook Page and Instagram account.
Note: Creator profiles and business profiles that haven’t connected to a Facebook Page are recognized as personal profiles.
Connect your Instagram account to a Facebook Page
You have to be an admin for the Facebook Page to complete this procedure. Only one Instagram profile can be connected to a Facebook Page and vice versa.
- To connect your Instagram account to a Facebook Page, see the Facebook help article How do I connect my Facebook Page and Instagram account.
- Once your Facebook Page is successfully connected to your Instagram account, return to Hootsuite, and select Resume Now.
