Social Media Connect Instagram and Facebook

18. May 2021

Connection to Instagram and all the other social media channels

We guide you step by step through this process –
This must be given:

  1. You need a Facebook profile, which is linked to Instagram

 Link from Instagram:

  • Open Instagram and click on Settings
  • Click on Account – Then on Linked Accounts
  • Choose Facebook: Here you should enter your Facebook login data and authorize access to Facebook

 Link from Facebook:

  • Click on settings
  • Click on Instagram
  • Click on Register and enter your login data

2. You need to change your Instagramprofile to a CREATOR or BUSINESS account, a private profile cannot be used: (see pictures below)

  • Go to your Instagram profile
  • Click on Settings
  • Scroll down and click on Switch to professional account
  • Choose a category that applies to you (e.g. “Digital Creator”)
  • Then you will be asked if you are a company – for you as an athlete “Creator” makes sense
  • Complete all steps

In general, as an athlete who is building a community and presenting content for sponsors, it makes sense to switch to a creator account. Your advantages as a creator are for example the analysis of your posts and stories, product tags in the feed, filter options in the mailbox or even a special app from Instagram to create the right content…
