Facebook and Instagram are more in sync than ever. One of the benefits of this integration is that you can share your Instagram stories and posts to Facebook to easily increase the reach of your content. Here’s how to do it.

For this to work, you’ll need to link your Facebook and Instagram accounts first.

Open the Instagram app on your Android smartphone or iPhone, then tap on your profile picture in the bottom right corner.

Visit the profile tab in the Instagram app

Select the three-line menu icon in the upper right corner of the tab to reveal a side menu and head to “Settings”.

Enter the three-dot menu in the Instagram app

At the bottom, tap the blue link for “Account Center.”

Visit the Facebook account center on Instagram

Visit the “Accounts and Profiles” section.

This will allow you to cross-post content and access other Facebook features, such as Messenger’s instant messaging features, through Instagram. When you do this, you also allow Facebook to aggregate your data from both platforms to personalize ads and suggest new profiles to follow.

Tap the “Continue” button, then “Finish Setup” to continue.

In the “Auto Sharing” section, turn on “Your Instagram Story” to post each of your future Instagram Stories to Facebook. The “Your Instagram Posts” option allows you to do the same with your grid posts.

In addition to this, you can now also message a Facebook friend from Instagram and vice versa. However, if you want to opt out, you have the option to block Facebook users from pinging you on Instagram.
