We have listed all that you need to know to do the same.

Before going to the steps of doing it, let’s first explore the benefits of having a linked Instagram and Facebook account.

  • When you have a cross-linked account the post or the video that you edit on Instagram can be posted on Facebook at the same time. Isn’t it amazing as Instagram offers good editing features that can be replicated to your Facebook content as well?
  • Also, linking accounts notifies your Facebook networks that you are on Instagram which will help you direct FB followers to Instagram thus increasing your total follower count.
  • Please note if you have a private account on Instagram, the post shared on Facebook will be visible as per your Facebook privacy settings
  • Last but not least both your accounts will be updated and you won’t have to take that extra time to post it all again from scratch.

Now as you know what all is in store for you, let’s dive into the steps of linking your Instagram account with Facebook.
