Lately, however, driven by curiosity, you have decided to try too Instagram: you have created your account, you have customized it with lots of photos and videos and you are also trying your hand at the hugely popular Stories. However, only now have you noticed that the app’s home page – the one where all the posts of the users you follow should appear – is definitely empty, because you are not following any users yet.
Not having the desire to waste too much time and search, one by one, your friends registered on Instagram, you started looking for a guide who could explain you how to follow all facebook friends on instagram and you ended up on this tutorial of mine. Did I guess? Great, then know that you are in the right place. In fact, in the next chapters of this guide I will provide you with clear and detailed information that will allow you to reach your goal.
The operation itself is really simple (especially if you have recently created your account and you are not following many users yet) and can be performed both on smartphones and tablets, and on computers. To find out more, all you have to do is get comfortable and take a few minutes to concentrate on what I’m about to tell you. I wish you a good reading and a lot of fun!
Before getting to the heart of the tutorial, I have to make an important premise: at the time of writing, even if it is possible to find your Facebook friends from Instagram through a dedicated function, it seems that Instagram only shows Facebook friends who are also in your phone book.
In light of what has just been said, I invite you to take a look (if you need it) at my tutorial on how to add a contact to the phone book, in order to allow the app to “see” them.
