How to Add Instagram Business Account Feeds

What’s happening?

After Dec 11, 2018,

  • You won’t be able to add a new hashtag and aggregate new content with your existing hashtag feeds. You need an Instagram business account for this. (Although your users need not switch to a business profile for you to collect their content through a hashtag.)
  • You won’t be able to collect users’ information (profile image and username) with hashtag posts.
  • Handles are still available, you can fetch your brand content via handles with your standard Instagram account. It will not get affected by Instagram API changes.

What’s Next?

  1. Convert your Instagram account to a business account.
  2. Link your Instagram business account from your Facebook business page.
