How can I follow my Facebook friends on Instagram?
After you've connected your Facebook account to your Instagram account:
Open the Instagram app on your phone.
Open your profile and click on the three horizontal lines in the upper right corner.
Tap on 'Follow and invite friends'.
Tap on 'Follow contacts'.
You will be asked to allow contact access to find people. Tap on 'Allow Access'.
After you've allowed access, you’re redirected to a new page. Tap on ‘Discover People’.
You will be given the option ‘Connect to Facebook’, click on it. (This step is if you haven’t connected your Facebook and Instagram already).
After you’ve connected your Facebook, you will be brought back to the ‘Discover people’ section, most of your Facebook friends who have Instagram accounts will be given as suggestions, and you can follow whomever you want.
Will all of my Facebook friends show up in the Suggestion section?
Not all of your Facebook friends will show up in the Suggested section, this is mainly because some of them haven’t got accounts on Instagram, or they haven’t connected their Facebook to their Instagram, thus making it harder for Instagram to connect you with them.
If you’re thinking of a particular person that you wish to follow, you can always try to search their name and last name in the ‘Search’ bar at the bottom of your Instagram homepage.
