How to Link my Instagram and Facebook Accounts
Instagram is a free mobile application designed to upload and share photos. With this hugely popular app, users can apply all kinds of photo effects like filters, frames, and vintage colors and then upload the result to their main social media profiles. Although Instagram was originally designed for iPhone, it can be used on other Apple devices, Android and even on computers.

The first and most important step to link your Instagram and Facebook accounts in order to upload pictures to both sites is to sync the two apps. Although both Instagram and Facebook can be used outside a portable device, this aspect is not so computer-friendly; you can only link your accounts from your smartphone.
Start by logging into your Instagram account. Once you've opened the app, click on the bottom right icon, which depicts the figure of a person. This will take you to your profile page. Next to your username, at the top right corner, you'll find three dots. Click on there.
To sync your Instagram and Facebook accounts, go to the "Settings'" section at the bottom of the screen. Then click on "Linked Accounts", where you'll find all the possible social media sites with which you can link your Instagram account.
Each time you post something to Instagram it will be publish on all the social media you choose, like Twitter, Facebook, or other picture-sharing app.
On the list of linked accounts you'll be able to find Facebook. Press on this social media site, and after a few seconds the app will ask you to confirm if you want to link your Instagram account to the one on Facebook.
Click on accept and they'll both be synchronized.
Synchronization between Instagram and Facebook also lets you share images on Facebook that you have already published on Instagram. To do this, click on the picture you want from Instagram and then click on the icon with the three dots at the bottom of the photo. From the drop-down menu select "Share" and then press the Facebook icon.
This does not mean that everything you post on Instagram will be automatically posted to Facebook. If you want to do that, upload a picture to Instagram as you usually would. When you're writing the description or caption you'll find the option to share the picture on different social media, including Facebook.
