Can I Split One Instagram Account into Two?

Splitting one Instagram account into two is a good way to increase your followers as well as gain a new space to share your ideas and extend your Instagram business if you have one.

◘ If you have an account on Instagram with a lot of followers, you can open another new Instagram account to gain more followers too.

◘ This would be easier for you as you can use your first account to give a shout-out to your second or new account by asking people to follow it to view new posts, content, or different kinds of products.

◘ This would be even more beneficial if you run any kind of online business on Instagram, then you can use two different profiles for two businesses and it would be more manageable.

◘ As you already have lots of followers on your first account, it wouldn’t be a problem to gain followers on your second account to grow it. You can add new posts on your new account and advertise them using your first account to gain more views or reach. 

◘ Even if you have a personal account with a lot of followers, you can make your new profile a business account if you’re thinking of starting your own business.

◘ The content creators of Instagram can gain more business if they have two separate accounts. They can post two different types of content from their two separate accounts.

◘ You can also post some of your best old content on your new account to gain more followers and make the account more engaging.

To create a new Instagram account, you need to head on to the Settings of Instagram and then click on Add account. It will prompt you with the option of ‘Create new account’ click on it to create a new Instagram account.

Why Should You Unlink Instagram Accounts From Facebook:

There are many reasons why you should unlink your Instagram account from your Facebook account.

1. To not get notifications and people’s suggestions

When you connect your Instagram account to your Facebook account, it shows you recommendations and suggestions of people to follow with whom you’re friends on Facebook. It notifies you every time any of your Facebook friends joins Instagram.

It can be sometimes annoying to get all-day suggestions and recommendations from Instagram.

After joining Instagram, it always asks you if you want to link your Instagram account with your Facebook account. It may seem to be a good idea at first because it helps you in gaining new followers, but it gets annoying over time.

2. To hide your Other Social Media

Another good reason why you should unlink your Instagram account from your Facebook account is to hide your other social media profiles from one another. If you have a business account on Instagram and a personal account on Facebook, you should not link them as they are completely unrelated.

If you linked your Instagram account with your Facebook account earlier but now you’ve changed your Instagram personal account to a business account, you should unlink both accounts to hide them from one another. This would keep your profiles separated and none of your Instagram posts or information would be revealed to your Facebook profile.
