I get a lot of requests from other people to take their photos when…
Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and Tumblr. Trying to post to each of your social media accounts can be a time hog.
Here’s how you can instantly share Instagram photos to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and Tumblr.
In six short steps you can post your Instagram pictures to Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and Tumblr from your Instagram account.
And best of all, no coding is required! Perfect for non-geeks or even lazy geeks. (Is that even a thing? Or is it a misnomer?)
Sign up for a free IFTTT (If This Then That) (https://ifttt.com/) account.
With IFTTT you can create conditions (“recipes”) that causes something to happen if the condition is present.
In our example, if you post to Instagram, the same photo will be posted to Facebook, Twitter, or another social media platform.
You can use IFTTT instead of writing code to create the recipe to cross post from Instagram to Facebook.
2. Search for Instagram Recipes
Look for “Post your Instagrams as native Twitter pics” recipe by typing “Instagram” in the Search box.
3. Choose an Instagram Recipe
Select the recipe you want to use and click “Add.”
The “Add” button will be grayed out until you connect your Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, or Tumblr account. Once you connect Facebook or the other social media networks, the “Add” button will turn green.
If you want to share your Instagram pictures to Twitter as images instead of an Instagram link, select a recipe that “posts Instagram photos as native Twitter photos.”
Open your Instagram app, select a photo and add your caption.
5. Select Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, or Tumblr
Click on the Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Flickr rectangles below the “Add Location” section.
You have to enter the log-in details for each social media account you want to share your Instagram photos.
When you’re ready to post on Instagram, click on Facebook and/or other social media network/s. The rectangle/s will turn blue. If it doesn’t turn blue, then your Instagram photo won’t be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Flickr.
Then click the “Share —>” button.
The image you share on Instagram will also be posted on Facebook and Twitter.
Have fun and happy posting!
You can instantly share Instagram photos to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and Tumblr with just a few clicks.
First create a free IFTTT (If This Then That) account and find the recipe for Instagram to Facebook or Twitter, etc.
Then connect your Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, or Tumblr account/s and start sharing your Instagram photos with your other social media networks.
Remember to click the rectangle for Facebook before you hit the Instagram share button.
Do you use IFTTT to share Instagram photos to Facebook? If not, are you posting photos to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram separately?
