Instagram: Here’s How to Automatically Share Your Instagram Story to Your Facebook Story

Follow our guide to automatically share your Instagram Story to Facebook

Instagram recently introduced the ability for users to share their Instagram Stories to their Facebook Stories. By default, Instagram users must manually activate this cross-posting for each individual Story post. However, the Instagram application also allows users to turn on a feature that causes the app to automatically share every Instagram Story post to their Facebook Story. Our guide will show you how to activate this feature.

Step 1: Tap your profile picture in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the gear icon near the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Under “Account,” tap “Story Settings.”

Step 4: Tap the toggle next to “Share Your Story to Facebook” to have the Instagram app automatically share your Instagram Story posts (both photos and videos) to your Facebook Story. The toggle will turn blue, indicating the feature has been turned on.
