Watch the video here, or read the instructions below:
How to Create an Instagram Business or Creator Account
If you're connecting an Instagram account to a Facebook Page managed in Facebook Business Manager, you’ll need to make sure it’s a Business or Creator account.
If you’re using a personal Instagram account, you can change your Instagram account to a professional one by following these steps:
- Go into Settings in your Instagram account on your mobile app.
- Tap on "Account"
- Tap "Switch to Professional Account"
- Select "Business"
Please note that it's mandatory to use mobile app, otherwise it could cause issues with your app.
How to Connect your Facebook Page and Instagram Account
To connect your Facebook Page and Instagram account:
- Login to your Facebook Account.
- Click Pages in the left menu.
- Go to your Page and click Page settings in the bottom left.
- Click Instagram in the left column, then click Connect Account.
- Enter your Instagram username and password and click Log In.
- Click Connect account, then click Confirm.
Please note, this requires a professional Instagram account (Creator or Business).
You’ll now be ready to use POWR Social Feed.
Connect Instagram in POWR Social Feed
Go back to POWR Social Feed. Click Continue with Facebook and log in to Facebook.
You’ll then be able to choose which Instagram Business or Creator account you would like to use with POWR Social Feed:
Please note that only one Instagram account can be displayed. If you select multiple, only the first will be displayed.
Then choose which connected Facebook Pages you’d like to use with POWR Social Feed:
Then review the permissions. These are required in order for POWR to access the content on your Instagram account and post it in Social Feed:
You’ll now be connected to Instagram and you can easily disconnect your account by clicking Disconnect in the settings panel in the POWR Editor:
Please note that in accordance with Instagram's rules, your permission will expire after 90 days. We will send you an email to restore access once the 90 days have expired.
I received an email today saying I need to verify permissions to continue displaying new content in my feed, but it's not obvious how to do that. I click the Verify Permissions button in the email but it just takes me to my dashboard. There's no badges or obvious buttons to direct me. When I click on the "..." on my instagram feed, none of the 7 options available seems to have anything to do with account or access management. And when I open up the Instagram feed and click on my one feed, the only controls are "disconnect", a max # of posts slider and a Done button.
How do I verify permissions? do I have to disconnect the feed and re-create it?
It's very frustrating. I expected that after I logged in, all i'd have to do is press a button to renew my permissions for another 90 days. But there's just zero on-screen guidance.
Hi Dave, Instagram is requiring users to reconnect their feeds every 90 days, So you need to reconnect your Instagram feed. (Disconnect and connect it again)
