Even though linking Instagram and Facebook has eased the lives of business account holders, the same feature is infamous for its regular issues.

The error usually shows up for existing users who had earlier connected their Facebook page and Instagram account. It comes into their notice when the user is unable to share their Instagram posts and stories to Facebook.

To fix it, you don’t need to take the drastic step of deleting your Instagram or Facebook account. Here you will find 7 ways to fix the issue of ‘page is already linked’ error.

Let’s check them out.

Note: Before we dive into the fixes, follow the right method to connect the Facebook page to Instagram.

1. Log out of Facebook and Instagram

The first fix that you should try is to log out from both the Facebook and Instagram apps. Start by logging out from the Facebook app. Then try linking the two in the Instagram app. To log out, tap on the three-bar icon in the Facebook app and hit the Log Out button.

If the issue persists, log out from Instagram too. In the case of Instagram, if you are signed into multiple accounts, use the Log Out All Accounts button if logging out from one account doesn’t fix the issue. You will find both the options under Instagram Settings.

Once unlinked, change to business account again and then link them.

3. Switch to Personal Account

Another solution that seems to help is to switch back to the personal account from your business account and then link the two. When you switch back, your posts or messages will not be deleted. Only your insight data from the business account will be removed.

Here are the steps in detail.

Step 1: Go to Instagram Settings followed by Account.

Step 2: Tap on Switch to Personal Account.

5. Check Admin Rights

To link a Facebook page to Instagram, you need to be the admin of the Facebook page. If you are an editor or hold any other position, you will not see the page when you try to link Instagram and Facebook. So make sure that you hold the position of the admin.

To check that, open the Facebook page and go to its Settings followed by Page roles. Here you will see the roles present below the username.
