Feature request: Instagram->Facebook
I often say that if I could code, I’d never leave the basement*: I know what I want, but I have to rely on others to make it real.
At the moment I’m wishing for a way to suck up some or all of my Instagram-hosted images, then repost them on Facebook. I already share each individual image via Twitter (and thus Facebook), but these don’t end up residing on FB, where family members would be much more likely to see them. This can’t be a hard thing to implement, but I’ve yet to see it done.
Update: Thanks to Noah Mittman for pointing out Instaport, a free site that lets you download some/all of your images as a ZIP archive. It’s a great start, though just to get greedy, let me also request a way to retain image captions. For me those are often as critical as the images themselves.
* Thus it’s probably like my not being more muscular (which would lead to my getting into lots of fights): probably a blessing in disguise.
