How Does Instagram Publishing Work With SmarterQueue?

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

Auto-publishing only works with Instagram Business Profiles, for single-image or video posts that are up to 60 seconds, while all other types of posts (Stories, Carousel, IGTV posts, or Reels), as well as all publishing to Instagram Personal Profiles, will work with the notification workflow on the SmarterQueue Mobile App.
