How Does Instagram Publishing Work With SmarterQueue?

Publishing on Instagram varies depending on the  type of content you are publishing as well as the type of Instagram Profile you have.  

Auto-publishing only works with Instagram Business Profiles that are connected to a Facebook Page, for single-image or video content that is up to 60 seconds. 💪

All other types of posts (Stories, Carousel, Feed video longer than 60 seconds, or Reels), as well as all publishing to Instagram Personal or Media Creator Profiles, will work via the notification workflow on the SmarterQueue Mobile App.
