How to Share Instagram Posts on Facebook

There are some different ways that you can use to share Instagram posts on Facebook. We will be giving a step-by-step process for two of these methods.

Method 1: Publishing Instagram Post on Facebook Using URL

With this method, you have to copy the URL of the Instagram post and paste it into the Facebook page update. This gives the chance to share your Instagram content easily. Follow these simple steps.

Step 1: Copy the URL of your Instagram post/status from the Instagram app or desktop version.

Step 2: Open the Facebook app on your phone or on the web browser and paste the Instagram post URL into the page status.

Step 2: Next, when the post picture shows up, delete the URL, and write your update for the status.

Step 3: Schedule the optimal time delivery for your post on Facebook. At your scheduled time, the post will be updated on Facebook.

Method 2: Using Instagram’s Post to Facebook Option

Another way of posting Instagram posts on Facebook is to turn on the auto-post to Facebook option when you post on Instagram. While there are some downsides to this method, like not being able to schedule, it is still worth a shot. If you are going with this method, follow these simple steps.

Step 1: Open Instagram on your mobile app or through the website on a PC or laptop.

Step 2: Compose a new post on Instagram.

Step 3: When you have chosen the post to add, just before sharing it, you will see a “post to Facebook” option in the area below. Turn this “post on Facebook” option by clicking on it.

Step 4: Now, whatever you share on Instagram will be shared on Facebook automatically when you hit the publish button. More, you can go to Facebook to edit this status according to the style that you use on Facebook.

Note: You will need to login into your Facebook account first, so Instagram can fetch your Facebook profile.

When you share a post from Instagram using this method, the look will be similar to the one shared on Instagram, and there will be no people or pages tagged. So, after sharing by this method, go to Facebook, change the style accordingly, and add the relevant tags by tagging those pages or profiles in the post.
