If you are having trouble connecting your Instagram account and linking Insights, we recommend completing all of the steps in the video below to troubleshoot the problem. Otherwise, keep scrolling for written directions.

Before you begin:

  1. You must have an Instagram Business or Instagram Creator account.

  2. Your Instagram account must be connected to a Facebook Page.

  3. You must have Admin permissions for that Facebook Page.

Troubleshooting Steps

Step 1: Confirm you have Admin access to the Facebook Page

  • Login to your Facebook account

  • Go to Pages

  • Click on the page that your Instagram is connected to

  • Go to Settings

  • Go to Page Roles

  • Check that your role is listed as 'Admin'

    • If you don't have Admin permissions, click "Edit"

Step 2: Review your Instagram account connection on Facebook

  • Login to your Facebook account

  • Go to Pages

  • Click on the page that your Instagram is connected to

  • Go to Settings within the Page

  • Click Instagram (on the bottom left) and double-check that your Instagram is connected to the correct Facebook page. If not, you will need to connect an existing Facebook Page or create a new Facebook Page

  • In some instances, you may see the 'Review Account Connection' banner in this area. If so, select the 'Review Connection' button and follow the prompts.

đź“Ś Important Note: If you don't see Instagram as an option within your Facebook Page settings, please click into Creator Studio or Meta Business Suite (depending on your account type) and follow the steps in the appropriate article below.

Step 3: Try linking again!

  • Once you have reviewed the steps above, head back over to Aspire and try connecting your Instagram account again.

  • Make sure that you select the correct Instagram account and the Facebook page tied to it, and that you select ALL permissions. Typically, we find that creators who have multiple Facebook pages and Instagram accounts may often choose the wrong ones and encounter errors.
