I can post my latest email to Instagram, but it doesn't open to the email... just a picture wit the link appears, but can't open. How do I fix that? Also, how do I post me email to business Facebook page?

Hello @GuyKatiO ,

 

Instagram's default functionality does not allow URLs to become links in post descriptions. The only place for a URL to be linkable is in an Instagram page's bio.

 

When setting up a social share of your email, I'd strongly suggest making a variation for the Instagram version. Maybe an image or two, with a basic rundown of what was in your email, then direct them to click the link in your bio or otherwise connect with you in a way to be able to see the email.

 

If you have your Facebook business page connected, it'll be an option for when you share your email or create a new social post.
