What happens if I share my Instagram photo or video to another social network?
If someone with a private profile shares a photo or video to a social network (like Twitter, Facebook and so on) using Instagram, the image will be visible on that network and the permalink will be active. In other words, the photo will be publicly accessible by anyone who has access to its direct link/URL.
Keep in mind that sharing a photo or video to a social network doesn't mean that the image will be visible in Instagram. Your account will still appear private to those who aren't approved followers.
What can I see when someone on Facebook interacts with my Instagram content?
When you share content to Facebook (example: stories, posts), you may see things such as likes, views, comments and reactions from Facebook accounts.
  • Reels: You may see views, likes and comments from people on Facebook.
  • Stories: You may see views, likes and reactions from people on Facebook.
  • Posts: You may see views, likes, comments and reactions from people on Facebook.
