Publishing to Instagram

Posting to Instagram is a little different than posting to your other social networks. Due to Instagram restrictions, posts can only be submitted with the official Instagram application on your mobile device. Homesync has made it very easy to schedule posts by automatically transferring your post information to the Instagram app.

Requirements:

If you are publishing from a browser:

  1. Select your “Send To instagram” when publishing your post.
  2. Wait for notification to be sent to your Homesync app on your mobile device
  3. Open the notification on your mobile device which will take you to the instagram publishing page on homesync.
  4. Select the image you want to publish to instagram and click ‘Post’
  5. Wait 10-15 seconds for Homesync to transfer information from the Homesync app to Instagram
  6. Paste your text from the Clipboard
  7. Submit your post via Instagram
