How to post Instagram photos to a Facebook Page

Share an Instagram photo to your Facebook Page instead of your personal account.

Currently the default location to share photos on Facebook from Instagram is your Timeline or Wall. (The label of where the photo is shared depends on if you're using the Android or iOS version of the app.) If you manage a Facebook Page and want to share a photo on that page, you may have found yourself uploading the photo to Instagram, then going back to your Camera Roll or Gallery and sharing the photo from there. But you can set up Instagram to share with your Facebook page by default. Here's how:

  • To share a photo on a Facebook Page instead of your personal account, launch Instagram and view the Options page. In the iOS app, you can find the Options page by viewing your profile, then tapping on the gear icon. On Android, view your profile and tap on the Menu icon in the top-right corner.
  • Select "Share Settings."
  • Tap "Facebook," then "Share Photos To" on the next screen.

  • If you manage any Facebook Pages, you should see a list of them on this screen. Tapping your preferred Page will then default any future Instagram sharing on Facebook to that respective Page.

In the future if you want to switch back to posting Instagram photos on your personal account, you'll need to follow these steps again and select your Timeline instead of a Page. It would be nice if Instagram would prompt you where to send the photo once you enable Facebook sharing for a particular photo, similar to what happens when you enable "E-mail" for a photo in the iOS app.
