    Publishing the photos we take with Instagram on our Facebook network of contacts brings together the potential of both social networks, in this way we let our friends know the images we have improved with the attractive filters that Instagram offers us.


    Instagram is an application that owes its name to the nostalgia for square photos that were instantly printed by old Polaroid cameras, suitable for both Android and Apple phones.



    It has filters that offer the possibility to change the appearance of the photos, the edges, the brightness, the predominant color, or to give them the look of an old photo, enhancing and personalizing the photo just taken.

    Once logged into your Instagram account, press the doll icon that you will see in the bottom right corner. Then you have to press the three dots that you will see in the upper right area. This is how you access your account settings.




    Once inside the options panel that appears, go to Settings and then, underneath, go to the item Connected accounts, where it will enable the possibility that every time you publish a photo taken with your mobile within Instagram, this will be published simultaneously.

    In the linking account of the social network of your choice, such as Facebook, although you may also connect to your Twitter, Foursquare or Tumblr profiles, where photographs may also be posted.

    In the list of social networks that you can connect to Instagram, the first that appears is Facebook. Click on the word and wait a few seconds. Instagram will ask you to confirm that you want to link your Instagram account to your Facebook profile. Click Accept and you will have both accounts linked, from that moment you can post your photos simultaneously on Instagram and Facebook.

The first is Facebook. You just have to put your finger and press on the word, selecting it, and so you will have shared your photo on Facebook.


    Not only can you publish the photos you take from the moment you connected your Instagram with your Facebook profile, but you can also easily publish photos that you have taken previously and that you have already posted on Instagram.
