The benefit of adding the Instagram feed to your site

By using our Instagram feed section, you can seamlessly integrate your social media account into your website. Adding social media to your website can add many benefits, such as:

  • Visual Appeal: Instagram is a visually-driven platform. Incorporating its feed into your website adds a dynamic element that can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your site.

  • Updated Content: An Instagram feed provides a constant stream of fresh content. This can keep your website looking lively and updated, which is important for engaging visitors and encouraging them to return.

  • Brand Consistency: Displaying your Instagram content on your website helps maintain brand consistency across platforms. It ensures that your visual messaging and style are coherent, crucial for brand recognition and trust.

  • Increased Engagement: Instagram feeds can increase user engagement on your website. Visitors might spend more time browsing your Instagram photos and videos, leading to longer visit durations.

  • Social Proof: Featuring real-time customer posts, reviews, or user-generated content from Instagram can serve as social proof, enhancing your credibility and trustworthiness.

When you get an error

  • an error about off-Facebook activity being turned off

It may look something like this:

This error means your 'off-Facebook Activity' may have been turned off. This feature on Facebook lets you control what website data is tracked by Facebook; however, it can also prevent other platforms you're integrated with from accessing the data needed to connect to your accounts.

To remove this error,

  1. Log into your Facebook account centre (Note: not Instagram).

  2. Click "Off-Facebook activity."

  3. Click "Manage future activity."

  4. Click "Connect future activity" and click "Confirm."

  5. It may take a few moments for the change to take effect. You can try reconnecting your Instagram account on your Durable after changing this settings.
