Merging your social media profiles definitely means that all followers and posts you want to be merged and cloned to your new profile.

But that’s not true for all types of social media platforms like Instagram.

Instagram has multiple features along with a few limitations and exclusions that its users have to bear.

Listen, actually Instagram in the near future may bring this feature for its users to merge multiple accounts. For now, you can use manual ways for managing accounts on the same app or repost the images.

So, until Instagram allows you to take advantage of such features in the future, use these methods smartly to get things done easily on your iPad or iPhone.

Although, there is another technique to move your followers back to the new Instagram profile.

1. Repeat ALL posts on New Instagram:

If your moving your Instagram account to a new one then repeating all of your existing posts to the new account including photos or videos is necessary. The users will identify you by your posts so it is always recommended to repost all of your stuff to your new Instagram account.

Note that Instagram doesn’t have any features to transfer your posts like Google Drive or Facebook.

You have to manually download all of your Instagram photos and post them on your new account.

🏷 Strong Points:

The users that identify you through those posts turn into followers only after you delete the same posts from the old account and make an announcement of your new Instagram account to follow you.

🏷 Bonus:

You can also take the help of some marketing companies that help Instagram influencers to come out of such a situation quickly and get new real Instagram followers legally.

🛑 Drawbacks:

If you want to repost all of your Instagram photos then this definitely will take a huge time and you have to do it one by one.

Another thing is you have to delete all of your old profile staff instantly after you clone the posts to your new profile. This will restrict access of your followers to your posts on that account.

Along with the followers, you will also be unable to access your own stuff as this deletion is permanent on Instagram.

Please note that it is not mandatory to delete, but it is advised for better results. 

🔯 Why should I repost photos and videos?

Instagram currently doesn’t have any such feature that you can use to mass download or upload your posts from one account to another.

However, you can try any tools available on the internet to download all of your posts at once and repost them one by one.

Another point to add is that you don’t have to post all of your old posts, just repost some recent ones from the last year.

🔯 How to Repost Instagram photos using Apps?

You have many apps that can repost your Instagram photos or videos instantly. If you want to do it automatically using an app you can use ‘FastSave for Instagram‘, available on the Google play store.
