After Facebook’s $1 Billion acquisition deal with Instagram, the two giant social media platforms came up with a lot of new features and updates for users. At the time of acquisition, Instagram had 30 million users but as per the report, Instagram has 800 Million users in September 2017. With that, Instagram became a multi-billion dollars business for everyone. With everyone, I mean, everyone who is using the Internet to leverage their businesses.
But Instagram has a really great thing for all those users who wanted to do things a little bit on Automation.
There is a new update in the Instagram which is hiding itself in the Instagram settings but that feature is really useful. Using that, you can automatically post the Instagram Stories on Facebook. You don’t need to post the same stories first on Instagram and then on Facebook or Vice-versa. Just connect your Facebook account with Instagram and you are all set.
