Keep in mind that this method shouldn’t work with multiple images. Also, some pages might not be designed to work with Instagram at the moment.

It’s important to mention that you can’t publish old Facebook posts to Instagram, and the same goes for the Facebook stories.

This feature is limited to Facebook pages, and in order to post to Instagram, your post needs to contain an image, so keep that in mind.


2. Use IFTTT, Hootsuite, or Buffer

  1. Sign up for the IFTTT account.
  2. Now use the Facebook Page to Instagram service.
  3. Click the Connect button.

  4. If asked, sign in to your Facebook and Instagram account.
  5. After doing that, your Facebook Page posts should be automatically shared to Instagram.

IFTTT offers a wide array of features, so you might want to experiment with different Facebook and Instagram recipes in order to achieve the desired results.

Alternatively, you can use services such as Hootsuite or Buffer that allow you to post on multiple social networks simultaneously, but these types of services usually have a monthly fee.

Conclusion

Sharing Facebook posts on Instagram is pretty simple, and you just need to change your Facebook Page settings and link your Instagram account to it.

After doing that, you can just select the Instagram option when sharing your post. If you’re more tech-savvy, IFTTT might be a good alternative as well.
