Instagram – the popular Android and iOS app allows users post images on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and other social networks directly. By default, when you share Instagram photos to Facebook, those photos are posted to your Timeline (or wall). However, if you manage a Facebook page, then you will want to post that photo directly to your page, and not to your Timeline. But many users follow the manual path by going to the Camera Roll or Gallery app and then share the photo from there.
Here’s how you can configure Instagram to post photos to your Facebook page by default.
Step 1: Launch the Instagram app on your iOS or Android app and then view the Options page. For those on iOS, you can visit this Options page from profile and then tap on the gear icon. On Android, you can view your profile and then tap on the icon in the top-right corner.
Step 2: Before proceeding, ensure that you have authorized Facebook to use your Instagram account. Now tap on “Share Settings.”
Step 3: Tap on “Facebook” and then on “Share Photos to.”
Step 4: From this screen, you will be able to select the Facebook page where you want to share the photos. Tap on your preferred page where Instagram will post photos by default.
That’s it. If you manage multiple Facebook pages, you will need to select another page by following the same method. If you want to start posting photos to your Timeline instead of a page, you will need to change the option from this screen.
This is not a complicated process, but it would be great if Instagram prompts users where to post photos once the sharing option to Facebook is enabled.
So go ahead and share your Instagram photos on Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) fan page. Just don’t post photos often as your fans might not want their news feeds being populated with photos.
