Instagram Tab

Before you can get started with setting up your Instagram Tab, or any other Woobox apps, you’ll need to log in to your Woobox account (or sign up for a free account if you haven’t done so already). Once you’ve done that, you can get right down to business!

Instagram Updates
As of 11/2018, Instagram and Facebook now require that you have an Instagram Business Profile connected to your Facebook Business page in order to install tabs or use hashtag functionality. For more information on that, see this article.

Create a new tab

Click Facebook Tabs on the left, then select the Instagram option.

Once you’ve successfully added your Instagram Tab, you’ll see the Edit page of the tab’s dashboard, where you can configure the settings for your tab to determine what content is displayed.

Now that you’ve added your Instagram tab, you have a decision to make:

Option A) Show Your Own Photos
If you choose to display your account’s photo feed, you’ll simply need to select the My Photos option and save the changes.

Option B) Show Photos with a Specific Hashtag
If you choose to display photos with a specific tag, you’ll need to input the tag (search term) that you want to use, which should be input without any hashtag/pound symbol, and must be one word only (Instagram’s API doesn’t support multiple term hashtag searches at this point).

And last but not least, click the big green Save Settings button to apply the changes!
