You can can easily share your interactive maps on Instagram. We recommend creating the post using the Instagram App.
- Open the map on your mobile phone.
- For the best visual effect, we recommend minimizing the overview
- Take a screenshot. On Android phones, press and hold the power and volume down buttons. On iPhone, press the Power button and the Home button at the same time.
- You can now use this image to create your Instagram post.
Linking to the interactive map URL
Unfortunately Instagram doesn’t allow to include a clickable link within the caption of a picture. Linking to your map will depends on the type of Instagram account you have
Instagram Personal Account
A popular workaround is to use the caption to redirect the viewers to the link in bio on your Instagram profile. Something like: “Check out the Interactive Map, the link is in my profile”
Since the map URL can be long, we recommend using a URL shortener such as Google URL Shortener
Instagram Business Account
If you have a business account, you can use the “Call to Action” button to add a link your map URL.
