5 easy ways to get more followers on Facebook!

When I was little I was caught coloring on the walls, my mom told me, Amy that is not a good idea.

Now tap on the Settings icon in the upper right hand corner. Under Preferences tap on Share Settings. Now tap on Facebook.

Instagram should now route you to Facebook where you’ll get a message asking if you give Instagram permission to manage your pages. Tap Ok. You’ll now be routed back to Instagram where a complete list of all the pages you manage will now be present. Just tap on the one you’d like your Instagram photos to automatically filter to. That’s all there is to it. If you ever want to change the way Instagram posts photos, you can always do so by performing the same steps above...
