Facebook Business Address

Does your personal address show up on Instagram?

Like most small businesses I have a business Facebook page, linked to my business Instagram page. An issue that seems to be common is that Instagram pulls all the information from your Facebook business page. The first step to avoid a quick search of your business on Instagram showing a location pin to your address is not to enter an address during the sign up process for either account.

However, if you have already done this, even though you have gone through and checked every option to hide your address, if the location pin under your Facebook page info is your address, then there is a good chance it will show up under a search on Instagram. The easiest way to alter this is to:

  1. Login to Facebook
  2. Go to your business page
  3. Go to settings, page info, scroll down till you see address.
  4. If you see a map with a pin on it, you can just move the pin (to the ocean or a central place in the city, but away from your personal address).
  5. Click save changes.

Setting up social media for your business can be a bit daunting. If you have any questions feel free to get in touch.
