How do I manage my connected experiences in Accounts Center?
Some features of Accounts Center aren't available in all countries at this time.
Share your story and posts across accounts automatically
Before you start
There are some things to know before you set up automatic story sharing:
  • You can also share to your Facebook story once, without changing your Accounts Center settings.
  • If you have a personal Facebook profile and one or more Facebook business Pages, you can choose which profile or Page to share to from any of the Instagram accounts that you’ve added to Accounts Center. Your story and posts from those Instagram accounts will be shared to that Facebook profile or Page until you change it.
  • When you set up Accounts Center, if you add an Instagram account that multiple people manage (example: a team working for a media company or public figure) and enable sharing to a personal account (example: your Facebook profile), the people who have access to the managed account may be able to share a story or posts to your personal account.
  • Learn more about managing posting across your accounts in the Instagram Help Center:

Sync your name and profile picture across accounts
Before you start
There are a few things you should know before you sync your name and profile:
  • When you first sync your name, your name on Facebook will become your name on Instagram.
  • People will be able to see and search for you with this name on both Instagram and Facebook.
  • Syncing your name on Facebook with your name on Instagram (example: Tracy Kim) won’t change your Instagram username (example: tkim).
  • To sync your profile picture, you also have to sync your name. When you sync your profile picture, you can choose to use either your Instagram or Facebook profile picture across your accounts. The default picture will be the picture you most recently updated.
  • If you change your name on Instagram or Facebook and have synced accounts, then your name will change on both accounts.
  • If you remove an account with a synced name or profile picture from Accounts Center or you disable syncing your profile information, your name and picture will stay the same on Instagram and Facebook until you change them. Any future changes you make to your name or profile picture will only apply to the account you’re updating.
