– Display Picture

If you have a personal Instagram account, your display/profile picture will not appear in your RecurPost account. It will only be shown in the case of a business account. This is because Facebook has updated its privacy policies and even basic information such as Instagram profile picture will not be displayed inside RecurPost account.

Post Scheduling

You shall be able to create one-off posts and recurring schedules using RecurPost for posts going out to both Personal and Business profiles.

– Posting Options

You can schedule your posts and use the queue in case of both Personal and Business profiles.

  1. To share your post on your Instagram personal account, you will receive a push notification from RecurPost when it’s time for your content to be published.
  2. For an Instagram business account, the posts will be published directly without any push notification.

Note: It is necessary to download RecurPost app on your mobile device in order to receive push notifications and post your content on Facebook Profile and Instagram Personal Profile. Our app is available for both Android and iOS users.

– Importing Posts from Social Media

You shall be able to import content from either of the social media platforms regardless of Instagram personal or business profile.

– Access to Reports

Detailed reports will be available only for Instagram Business Profiles. Users having Instagram Personal Profiles will no longer have access to ‘Reports’ feature on RecurPost because of the limitation on Facebook’s end.

Note: As per Facebook’s updated privacy policies, third-party apps do not have access to information from Instagram Personal Profiles, including likes, comments, interactions, and engagement rate.

– Weekly reports through emails

As these reports are exclusive to Instagram business profile holders, they will get a weekly performance report through email.
