In this article, we will go through the process of linking your Facebook business page with your Instagram business account. You will need to do this in order to maximise your social media effort across both platforms, and luckily, it’s a swift and straightforward thing to do.

A step by step guide to connecting your Facebook and Instagram business accounts

  1. On a desktop, open your Facebook page, then open the menu to the left hand side of your screen and click on Settings.

  2. Under Linked accounts, you should see ‘Instagram’ listed.

  3. Click on ‘Instagram’ and then Connect Account.

  4. You have the option of allowing access to your Instagram messages and inbox (though you can access your inboxes within Maybe*).

  5. Facebook will ask you to ‘authenticate’ your account. This means that you will have to input your Instagram login information on the pop-up that appears on your screen. The username and password fields might auto-populate, depending on whether you have logged in on your desktop previously.

That’s it, your accounts should now be linked! To check this, your Instagram account name should now appear as a hyperlink on your Facebook page, next to the Instagram icon, to allow your customers easy access between your two accounts.
