Connecting an Instagram Professional Account to Hearsay

Hearsay Social supports connecting Instagram Professional Accounts to Hearsay in order to publish and schedule visual content for your network. If you only have an Instagram Profile but not an Instagram Professional Account, please see Converting Instagram Profiles into Professional Accounts read the instructions, or watch a video on how to complete this process.

Note: Because Facebook owns Instagram, and your Instagram Professional Account is created from your Facebook Business Page, you must have credentials for both to connect Instagram. 

  1. In Hearsay, at the top of your screen, click Settings
  2. Select Accounts
  3. On the Accounts page, click Connect Instagram and enter your Facebook Profile credentials. This is the Facebook Profile that manages your Facebook Business Page. 
  4. Select your Instagram Professional Account you want to connect and click Finish.
