Creating an Instagram Page
Four things to know when creating and linking an Instagram Page:
- If you don't have a Facebook business page already, create one.
- Ensure you have admin access to the Facebook page you plan to connect to.
- Ensure your Instagram account is a business account because personal and creator accounts are unlinkable.
- You can only link one Instagram page to one Facebook business page and vice-versa.
You can create an Instagram Page if you have a Facebook account. In fact, having a Facebook account makes the process more straightforward. Here's how you can create an Instagram Page that links to your Facebook account:
- Log Into Facebook:
- Open the Facebook app on your mobile device or go to Facebook's website on your computer.
- Log into your existing Facebook account. If you don't have one, create a Facebook account first.
Link Your Instagram Account:
- If you're using the Facebook app on your mobile device, tap on the three horizontal lines (menu icon) in the top-right corner.
- Scroll down and tap "Settings & Privacy." Then, select "Settings."
- Scroll down and locate the "Instagram" section.
- Tap on "Account Center."
- Tap on "Log in with Instagram" or "Link to Instagram."
- Follow the prompts to log into your existing Instagram account or create a new one.
Convert to a Business or Creator Account:
- After linking your Instagram to your Facebook, you can convert your Instagram account to a Business or Creator Account.
- Go to your Instagram profile.
- Tap the three horizontal lines (menu icon) in the top-right corner.
- Tap "Settings."
- Tap "Account."
- Tap "Switch to Professional Account." Follow the prompts to select your account type (Business or Creator) and set up additional information.
Complete Your Instagram Page Setup:
- After converting your Instagram account to a Business or Creator Account, you can complete your profile setup, including adding contact information, category, and other relevant details.
Start Using Your Instagram Page:
- Your Instagram Page is now live and linked to your Facebook account. You can start posting content, engaging with your audience, and using Instagram's business tools to manage and grow your presence.
