How to Set Up Auto-Post for Instagram - Step 2

Are you listed as an Admin of the Facebook Business Page you're trying to connect on Facebook? If not, go ahead and follow these steps to make sure you are so you will be eligible to auto-post.

In order to successfully link your Instagram Business account to your Facebook Business Page, you must be an Admin of the Facebook Business Page. Also, a Facebook Business Page can only be linked to one Instagram Business Account. In this case, you can not have one Facebook Business Page linked to multiple Instagram Business Accounts. 

Please Note: Personal Instagram accounts are not eligible for auto-posting.

Planoly Pro Tip: If you're not an Admin on the Facebook Business Page, ask the Page Owner to add you or change your role/access for you to auto-post and enable additional Planoly features! 

Confirm You're an Admin of the Facebook Page 

Please Note: You will only need to take steps for one of the two sections below depending on the Facebook version you are on.
