The connection with Instagram allows you to retrieve images from your feed, those on which your brand is tagged, but also live stories.

❗️The Instagram stories disappear after 24 hours, it will not be possible for JOIN to retrieve those that have been posted after this time.

Step 1: Have a business Instagram account

The only way to add images is to have an Instagram Business account.

To do this you need to change your personal account to a business account.

You can find the tutorial by clicking here.

Already have a business account? Go to step 2!

Step 2: Connect your Facebook account

Since 2012, Facebook has bought instagram, that's why you have to go through Facebook to connect your Instagram account.

Before continuing, make sure you are logged in to the Facebook account where you have admin rights to the Instagram account you want to connect.

❗️If you don't have the rights, ask to the person in charge in your company to be granted the rights, or it will be up to the person with the rights to connect.

To connect your account, go to a story and click on Medias > Instagram.

Then click on Connect via Facebook. A screen will appear asking for permission to continue the steps with your Facebook profile.

All you need is to select "all" on the different steps :

Once you are logged in, you will have access to the list of accounts that you can link to JOIN.

Simply select the one you want and accept all the permissions needed.

You will also need to select the page that corresponds to your brand.

If you don't have a Facebook page linked to your Instagram account here's how to do it.

Once all this is done, you will see the content of your Instagram account appear: Congratulations! ✨

You will find all your images in one click, via the Instagram menu then Import :

It's also possible to log out by clicking on Import and then at the top of the pop up next to your Instagram account name, on the "..." and then clicking on Log out.

💡 Pro tip: Connecting your instagram account is a good way to showcase the content you have created for this network or to showcase the content that your brand's users and fans have created! Be sure to ask them if you can use the content before you use it.
