Yes. Finally! We can say WELCOME Direct Insta publishing to our Kontentino lives.
As many of you may know Instagram has given access to its Content Publishing API for Business accounts.
What does it mean?

Direct scheduling is available only to Business profiles, but you can change your personal profile to business in no time. You can check out how here.
