If you want to publish moments created with GeoBooster on your Instagram page, you need to set up an integration with Pabbly Connect.

Important: first of all, make sure that your Instagram account is a "business" one, that it is connected to your Facebook account, and that it is connected to a Facebook Page.

Go to pabbly.com and create an account (if you don’t have one). You can set up the integration with a free account, but you may need to switch to a paid account later because the number of runs on a free account is limited.
