Connect Gatsby with Instagram

Connect Gatsby with Instagram Below are the steps to connect Gatsby with your Instagram Business Account. A required step to go live

To activate your Gatsby account, you will need to connect with your Instagram Business Account. To do this, simply click the "Continue With Facebook" button or the toggle switch next to it on the Quick Start Guide:

You will be guided through a few steps to connect your Account with Facebook. Just be sure to select the Instagram Business Account you want to track insights on, and the Facebook page that is connected to that Instagram Business Account.


Because Facebook owns Instagram and they designed it so that every Instagram Business Account is associated with a Facebook Page, please select that Instagram Account's associated Facebook Page.

(this is simply because of how the Facebook/Instagram APIs work. We will never post to your Facebook or your Instagram for the matter, it's just how we are able to get you the necessary insights).

If you are not sure which Facebook Page to select, select multiple Pages or All and our system will automatically check and connect the right one.

Last step:

Review all the permissions are checked, and press Done.

We will never post anywhere or follow / unfollow anyone. All of these permissions are required to show you the metrics on which of your customers are tagging & mentioning your brand and how those posts are performing.

That's it!

Now you will see a small thumbnail image of your Instagram Business Account to confirm the connection. If you are on our Business or Plus plans and connected multiple Instagram Business Accounts, you'll see multiple thumbnail images:

Now go check out your Data tab in Gatsby.

You should see some insights on the "Your IG Growth" graph right away, including:

  • # of unique visitors to your Instagram profile in any selected time period

  • # of followers you have every day going forward

Insights on your micro-influencers will begin flowing in as they post.
