Sharing is caring

Scrolling through social media applications is something we all do without much difficulty, but switching from one application to another may occasionally be a chore, even when all you need to do is change from one parent app to another. Facebook and Instagram are therefore developing something to make it simpler for all users.

“Today, we’re introducing new features that will make it easier for people on Facebook and Instagram to access, create and navigate between multiple accounts and profiles. We know that many people use more than one of our apps to pursue different interests, reach a broader audience, or share different aspects of who they are with different groups of people. With that in mind, we’re simplifying the process of creating and switching between accounts and profiles.”, wrote Meta in their blog.

Easily Switch Between Facebook and Instagram

While it has been possible to switch your Instagram accounts through the app now it will be possible to switch between the applications too.

If Facebook and Instagram are added to the same Accounts Center, users will be able to simply switch between them. Furthermore, users may now view both their Facebook and Instagram profiles in one location. Additionally, each profile’s notifications will be prominently displayed, making it simpler to keep up with activity on Facebook and Instagram.

On iOS, Android, and the web, they are testing this new experience internationally.

Quickly Create New Accounts and Profiles

That’s not it. They’re also introducing a new account registration and login process that will make it simpler for individuals to sign up for new accounts on Facebook and Instagram.

New users can open an account on Facebook or Instagram, then join up for additional services using that account. And as long as both accounts are in the same Accounts Center, users who have accounts with both Facebook and Instagram can now quickly access the other app using their login information from one.

On iOS and Android, they are now testing this enhanced experience worldwide.

Making Structures Safe

While these features will bring ease, they might also play with the safety and privacy of people. Each of these new features uses the Meta brand to be as transparent and simple to comprehend as possible that you are engaging with a feature that works across several Meta technologies.

“As always, account security and privacy are top of mind for us, and existing security features will still apply to the updates we are announcing today. For example, if someone turns on two-factor authentication for their Facebook account, then an unrecognized device can’t log into their Facebook account with their Instagram login information.

Additionally, people will be notified when a new account is created using their existing account and when an account is added to their Accounts Center, so you can confidently stay up to date on activity across all of your accounts. Finally, people can manage which profile appears in the profile-switching experience, and which accounts can log into each other.”, informed Meta through their blog.
