I have a page on Facebook and it IS linked to Instagram. My Instagram account is a business account and it is also linked to Facebook.

When I try to create a post on Facebook the option to cross-post to Instagram is NOT showing and I don't know why it wouldn't be there if the account IS linked?

What else do I need to do?

I tried posting from Instagram and turned ON the "post to Facebook" and "post to twitter" options. It successfully posted to Twitter, but NOT to the Facebook page.

I had the same problem, the option doesnt appear, but I've found Facebook gives you another integrated tool where you can do it, it's called creator studio.

Facebook creator studio

There you can create a post from Facebook for Instagram, and checkmark that it also appears in certain Facebook page.

On one of my FB pages, I had the cross-post option but I just realized today it's missing now. But on my other page, I've never managed to enable the cross-posting option :(, and I set up everything exactly you did.
