How to Share a Facebook Post on Instagram From Your Desktop

If you manage a business account on Facebook or Instagram, you know the importance of efficiently coordinating your content across platforms. Until recently, however, the process of sharing a Facebook post to Instagram was more cumbersome than it needed to be. Thankfully, that's no longer the case! Facebook has recently lifted the restrictions on cross-posting between a personal Facebook account and a business Instagram account, and it's now possible to share any type of post or story to Instagram from your desktop.

To do so, simply make sure your Instagram and Facebook accounts are linked in the Accounts Center on your mobile app (under your profile picture). Then, when you create a new post or video in the Facebook app, you'll see an option to "share on Instagram" right below the Instagram icon. Just toggle it on to start sharing to Instagram! This will work for any kind of Facebook post or story—posts, carousels, and even Facebook reels.

You'll still be able to select your own photo or video and apply any filters, as well as use any hashtags, location tagging, or account tags that you want to add. Instagram also continues to let you control how public or private your posts are by choosing a privacy setting and choosing whether to share with all followers or only with preapproved followers.

Using this feature can be a great way to get more engagement on your posts. But it's important to remember that Instagram is a community-driven platform, and engaging with your audience is key to growth and success. So don't forget to reply to comments and follow back users who interact with your content!
