Instagram not sharing to Facebook? 5 Ways to fix it!

You may publish your Instagram posts to a connected Facebook account quite easily by using cross-posting. Cross-posting can be a great way to save time and reach a larger audience, but many users have complained that the iPhone version of this tool doesn’t work for them.

You’ve come to the right place if you’ve also run into a related problem. I’ve listed five solutions below that can help if Instagram on your iPhone isn’t sharing to Facebook. So let’s get started!

1. Ensure that your Instagram and Facebook accounts are linked

One of the prerequisites for sharing your Instagram post on Facebook is to have both accounts linked together. Therefore, you must ensure that both accounts are properly connected before you share anything.

  1. Launch Instagram on your iPhone → Tap your profile picture at the bottom right.
  2. Select the hamburger menu from the top right.
  3. Tap Settings and privacy.

    Go to Settings and privacy in Instagram
  4. Navigate to Accounts Centre → Connected experiences → Sharing across profiles.
