If you are a regular user of Instagram, especially one who loves scrolling and flicking through the various story updates from your friends and brands that you follow, then you will be familiar with the rise in TikTok videos shared to Instagram.

So, what happens when you see a great TikTok that you want to post on Instagram?

Well, first thing’s first, you need to link your profiles to enable cross-platform posting.

To do this, you need to head to your TikTok account and select ‘Edit Profile’.

In the ‘Social’ section of your app settings, choose the option to ‘Add Instagram’. You then need to log into Instagram by entering your credentials – connecting your two accounts for seamless sharing.
