How to Get More Views by Sharing Your Instagram Reels on Facebook
Users of Instagram were previously limited to creating and sharing reels only within the app. Creators may now cross-post Instagram Reels to Facebook thanks to a new update from Meta, which should help them get in front of more people. Let’s go into the details.

Instagram Chief confirmed the information in a tweet and discussed the capability that will allow cross-posting of any reel video from Instagram to Facebook. To use this new function, users must have accounts that are registered on both platforms.
“We are launching a few new Reels features to make it enjoyable and easy for people to find and share more amusing material,” Mosseri wrote in the tweet. He goes on to describe more capabilities such as “Add Yours’ Stickers,” “IG-to-FB Crossposting,” and “FB Reels Insight.”
