When you switch to a business account on Instagram, you'll be asked if you'd like to connect a Facebook Page. While it's not required by META, it is a requirement for connecting your accounts to Digivizer and you'll get significantly richer analytics in the so we recommend you do!

Note: Only one Instagram profile can be connected to a Facebook Page and vice versa. If you do not have a Facebook Page for the for the Instagram account you wish to connect to Digivizer, see Facebook's help article Create a Facebook Page if you need to create a new one.

If you didn't connect your FB Page when you first set up your Instagram Business account, the following instructions allow you to add or change the Facebook Page connected to your Instagram Business account.

Before you begin

Your personal Facebook account must have an admin role on the Page you’d like to connect to. If the Page isn’t in the drop down on your Instagram profile, check your Page’s settings on Facebook to determine if you have an admin role. Visit Facebook's help article for assistance on how to check and update access and permissions and how to add people to a business portfolio and assign a business asset.

Follow these steps:

  1. Confirm that your Instagram profile is a Business profile (see below for instruction).

  2. Make sure you've got the right permissions (see the Facebook help article See your Facebook Page role or access):

    • Facebook Page classic - Admin or Editor Page role.

    • New Facebook Pages experience - Full or partial control.

    • Asset in Facebook Business Manager - Management access to the Page in your Business Manager account. See the Facebook help article Add People to Your Business Manager.

  3. Follow the instructions below to Add (or update) the Facebook page connected to your Instagram account.

How to check your Instagram profile type

If you’re not sure what type of Instagram profile you have, open your account in Instagram, and access your settings. Learn how using the Instagram help article Your Instagram account settings. Depending on your profile type, you'll see one of the following options:

  • Personal profiles - "Account types and tools"

  • Creator profiles - "Creator tools and controls"

  • Business profiles - "Business tools and controls"

Add or Change the Facebook Page to your Instagram business account

To add or change the Facebook Page that is connected to your Instagram business account follow these steps:

  1. Go to your Instagram profile.

  2. Select Edit Profile.

  3. Under Public Business Information, Select Page.

  4. Choose a Page from your Pages that you'd like to connect to or select Create a New Facebook Page.

  5. Tap Done after you've selected a Page or created a new Page.

Your business account is now connected to a Facebook Page. If the Page you'd like to connect is not showing in the drop down from your profile, it may be because you are not an admin of that Page. Check your Page's settings and make sure you have permission to add that Page to your Instagram business profile.

When you're completed these steps, head on over to Digivizer and Connect Your Accounts.
