How to fix Instagram posts not sharing to Facebook error

Over the past week, many Instagram users have been reporting errors with the sharing to Facebook feature.

It’s a great tool that means you can share the same photo on both platform quickly and easily, and it’s used by millions of users across the globe.

However, Instagram posts don’t appear to be uploading to Facebook as usual this week, and users can’t understand why. If this is happening to you, find out how to fix it below…

Instagram posts not sharing to Facebook

Lots of Instagram users have been taking to Twitter over the past few days to complain that their Instagram posts are not sharing to Facebook.

After posting their Instagram photo, people are reporting that the image is not sharing to Facebook at all and isn’t visible anywhere on their profile.

One person wrote: “Anyone having sharing issues from #instagram to #facebook when I post on Instagram my posts always share to my Facebook. This morning, it’s not doing so. I’ve checked my settings, changed passwords, tried again & it did nothing.”

“Same, any update?” another replied whilst a third user added: “Same here! Came to Twitter to see if anyone else was running into the same problem.”

At the time of writing this, Instagram hasn’t addressed the error, but it appears to be a glitch on Instagram’s part.

Many have reported that their photos have now posted to Facebook and were simply delayed. However, if your posts still aren’t sharing, find some possible fixes below.

Try relinking Facebook to Instagram

If your photos still aren’t sharing, relinking your Facebook account to your Instagram should fix it. Here’s how to do it…

  • Open Instagram and go to your profile.
  • Click the three lines in the top right-hand corner and tap ‘Settings’.
  • Tap ‘Accounts’ then ‘Sharing to other apps’.
  • Press ‘Facebook’ and remove your profile from the ‘Accounts Centre’.
  • Then, connect your Facebook profile to your Instagram again.

Other things to try

If that didn’t work, here are some other things that could potentially help…

First, try logging out of both apps and then logging back in again as this might fix the feature.

  • Delete both apps and open them again. 

If that didn’t work, completely delete the apps from your phone and re download them again.

  • Change your Facebook password.

Changing your Facebook password and then reconnecting it to your Instagram account could be the answer.

  • Check you’re using the most recent versions.

Make sure you’ve updated the Facebook and Instagram apps to the latest version in the App Store.
