Instagram (Feeds source)

The following Instagram features can be used as Feeds sources.

Username: To create an Instagram Feeds source, Instagram requires that you connect your account. As of April 4, 2018, you can only display posts from an owned Instagram account, which is an account you have the login credentials for. You cannot display posts from unowned Instagram accounts, unless pulled in via a hashtag or location source. For additional information, see our article about connecting social media accounts.

Once you have connected the account, you can then add the Instagram username into the Instagram source window and display the posts. You can connect multiple Instagram accounts on your Connected Social Accounts page, which will allow you to display the posts from each corresponding account as a source. 


To display posts from Instagram based on a hashtag, you must connect an Instagram Business account to Feeds. This step is required by Instagram and its parent company, Facebook. If you do not have an Instagram Business account, you must create one first or switch a personal Instagram account to a business one. Please view the full steps in the Knowledge Base article below.

Feeds is unable to obtain Instagram Stories, Comments, or IGTV posts aka "Reels" because the Instagram API does not support this for third-party services at this time. Feeds is also unable to obtain posts from Instagram that the network has flagged for potential copyright infringement (such as use of popular music).
