The parent company of Instagram, Facebook, makes a lot of efforts to ease the interaction between the two platforms, one of them being the synchronization of Facebook and Instagram contact lists.
Although it can be quite difficult to make new friends on Instagram, using Facebook to stay in touch with friends you already know is quite rewarding.
Instagram is a social networking site where users share photos and search for interesting people. It has a built-in feature that lets users find interesting people. Instagram can automatically identify people you already know from your Facebook account since many Instagram users are also your Facebook friends. Followers on Instagram can view, like, and comment on their latest photos and updates, which boosts the profiles of their Facebook friends.

I can’t follow my Facebook friends on Instagram. How do I fix it?
- When the first case is true, i.e., action-block, then you must wait. Instagram usually blocks your account for 3 hours when an action block is applied. Repeating the mass action repeatedly will result in a 24-hour period of action-blocking, three-days, ten-days, and thirty-days action-blocking, and if you repeat, you will ever be action-blocked.
- You can always invite your Facebook friends who aren’t on Instagram to join so they can connect with you. You can do this by going to the settings and clicking Follow and Invite Friends. Here, you’ll find three ways to invite all your friends who aren’t on Instagram: by Whatsapp, by SMS, or by Email… Just pick one of them and let them know how to join.
- You will not be able to follow Facebook friends on Instagram if your Facebook and Instagram are not connected. You can connect them by going to Instagram settings->Account->Linked Accounts->Facebook. Linked Facebook and Instagram accounts will allow you to see and follow your friends on Facebook.
- In case Instagram is experiencing a problem, try either of these solutions:
- The BlueStacks app can be installed on your PC. After installing the app, you can then access your Instagram account. Both Android and iOS users will be able to access their accounts.
- Uninstall Instagram and download version40: The only version of Instagram that does not contain this bug is version40. Instagram is still experiencing issues with newer versions, but they are working on finding a solution.
