A bit of history: with the new, updated security changes at Facebook and Instagram now you can connect via API (special interface allows third parties, apps and web services to access your account) only so called Professional accounts.

So before we start, please make sure your Instagram account is Professional. If you use regular Instagram account, follow next steps to convert and if you’re on Professional, skip and move to Part 2.

Making your account Professional (available from mobile apps only):

1. Go to your profile and tap
2. Tap Settings
3. Tap Account.
4. Tap Switch to Professional Account.

Swipe through the guide and choose your category of the business profile. If not sure, choose the most close one to your feed.

After that’s done, re-check your personal information and connect to the Facebook Page.

At this point you might stuck if your Instagram was previously connected to any other account. To remove that connection please navigate to the Account > Linked Accounts, locate there Facebook connection and disconnect that. If that was a case, please switch your page back to Personal and make Business again.

So that’s it, now your account is Professional. To find out more benefits of Professional accounts read Instagram article about that.
