Why bind Instagram to Vkontakte, Facebook, Twitter or Odnoklassniki?
If the same Twitter publishes Instagram posts only in the form of regular web links, then Facebook, Vkontakte and Odnoklassniki allow you to share an image from the “insta” even through a branded application (the result will appear in the news feed and in a separate album called Instagram). If you like to receive “likes” – who doesn’t? – for your pictures, you can do it in all major social networks, of course, provided that you are registered there.
In addition, Vkontakte, Facebook and Odnoklassniki are still visited by a lot more people than Instagram, so the coverage of your publication there is likely to be higher (if, of course, your posts in the feed are available to everyone).
It is also worth noting here that the most advanced integration is, of course, provided by Facebook (the company owns the Instagram service). News feed algorithms for Instagram prioritize posts with higher social engagement, additional likes can help you climb higher in the news feed.
Linking Instagram to Vkontakte, Facebook and Odnoklassniki accounts is a way to show photos to all, all your friends. After all, someone “lives” exclusively on Facebook or Odnoklassniki, while someone has been opening only Instagram on the iPhone for a long time. And so everyone will know about your activity!
Finally, seamless integration between social networks allows you to copy Instagram posts to Facebook, Vkontakte and Odnoklassniki while preserving key details – location data, hashtags and emoji. The mentioned social networks will publish photos or videos from Instagram in their feed, as well as save all the content in a special album called Instagram, and as a result, it will not be difficult for you to tag your friends on them.
