This guide will walk you through how to sync your Instagram to GRIN, specifically via the OAuth verification which is a required Facebook authentication. To connect via the OAuth connection, you will need an Instagram business or creator account that is linked to a Facebook business page. The OAuth verification is a requirement by Facebook that allows us to pull in your Instagram stories and their metrics. This does not give us access to your login or private information.
When connecting your Instagram business account make sure to be logged out of your Facebook page on your device. Once prompted to log in via Facebook, make sure you log in to the Facebook page connected to the Instagram account you will be delivering your content to.
Step 1 Open a new tab and navigate to your Live URL.
Step 2 Once you have reached Step 4. Social Networks click on Connect next to the task.
Step 3 You will be redirected to a new page, click Okay, let's do it.
Clicking the "I don't have an Instagram Creator or Business account" option will automatically sync the Instagram account you are already signed into on your device. If you are not already logged in on your device, then you will be redirected to Instagram in order to do so. However, keep in mind that if you do not connect via the OAuth verification (Facebook) you will NOT be able to select the required story tasks, nor will you be able to submit a proposal.
