Linking your Instagram Creator or Business account to a Facebook page

All Instagram accounts connected to Pressboard must be linked to a Facebook page to display insights

Instagram has 3 different types of profiles: personal, creator and business. Due to Instagram’s API limitations, Pressboard requires that your Instagram account is either a Creator or Business account AND is linked to a Facebook page.
