Why do I have to authenticate my Facebook account to start using the Instagram Feeds tool?

RSS Ground uses official developers documentation to provide you with access to the original content published on Instagram. The Instagram service has deprecated its own developers' platform and it is now built on the Facebook Graph API - official developers environment for all Facebook-related services. 
Like in other Facebook tools, the user has to obtain an access token. But since it is now impossible to get access tokens directly from Instagram we refer to the Facebook platform. That's why you have to authenticate with Facebook account and grant our app all requested permissions.
You have to go through the authentication process only once. We save your user token and use it every time you review generate Instagram feeds.
Note: access tokens will expire after 60 days, and you will have to obtain new tokens to resume your feeds. All you have to do is to go to Instagram feeds tool and re-authenticate Facebook account. We will send you a notification as soon as your token is expired, please make sure you have whitelisted our support @ rssground.com email.
Obtaining user access token is not the only requirement by Facebook. The next step you have to undertake is to create a Facebook page if you don't have one yet. And you have to connect your Instagram account to this page. If you have several Facebook pages and several Instagram profiles, you can connect any of them. You can even have several Instagram accounts connected to your several Facebook pages. When generating Instagram feeds you will choose which Instagram account you wish to use.
Note: as soon as you connect your Instagram account to one of your Facebook pages this will make it an Instagram Business Account. Learn more about what happens when you connect your Facebook Page and Instagram account.
To sum up. In order to use Instagram Feeds tool you have to:
1. Have an Instagram account. Learn how to get
2. Have a Facebook account. Learn how to get
3. Have a Facebook page. Learn how to create
4. Have your Instagram account connected to your Facebook page. Learn how to connect
