Instagram was purchased by Facebook for $1.0 billion back in 2012. Since then you may have noticed that the two are closely linked. At some point you may have linked your Facebook account to your Instagram account in order to enable cross-messaging or a business profile to create ads through Facebook Ads Manager.
Now you might have privacy concerns, be annoyed by notifications that come from both platforms or simply want to unlink an account to link it someplace else. It's very easy to unlink your Instagram and Facebook accounts. It takes less than a minute. Here's how.
