By linking your Instagram and Facebook account, your videos, pictures, and posts that you put on Instagram will also be shared to Facebook. Captions, hashtags, emojis, etc., will all be transferred over seamlessly. What’s more, is your pictures and videos that you save on Instagram will also be saved in a photo album titled “Instagram Photos” on Facebook making any tagging you need to do on Facebook easily. It saves you time and energy and extends your reach to many more users over the two accounts which can boost your brand awareness and increase sales. Likes you receive on your Instagram posts will also be added to your Facebook posts.

Another perk of linking your Instagram and Facebook accounts is if you lose access to one of your accounts, it makes the recovery process much easier. 

Conclusion

Linking your Instagram and Facebook accounts can save you time and energy in creating posts and uploading photos, allowing you to focus more on your content. It helps boost your outreach, which in turn, can help increase the engagement your viewers will have with your posts. Thankfully, it is easy to link and unlink the two accounts whenever necessary.
