Meta is working on making it easier for users to switch between Facebook and Instagram accounts through a new profile switching tool.
The corporation has implemented a cross platform profile switching interface that keeps track of notifications across both social media sites. This will be easier for those who manage a number of different accounts for work, creative pursuits, various hobbies, or just to separate social circles.
It will be much easier for people to switch between their Facebook and Instagram profiles if they’ve added them to the same Accounts Center.
In addition, people can now see their Facebook and Instagram profiles in one place. Notifications will also be conveniently displayed for each profile, making it easier to stay up to date on activity across Facebook and Instagram.
Also, The social media parent company has made it easier to create new accounts within this framework. Making use of the same Accounts Center tab, you can quickly make new profiles for either service.
In other words, you just need one primary account, and you use that to create all of your profiles. The days of endlessly logging on and off are, thankfully, coming to an end.
The company added that existing security features, such as two-factor authentication, still apply to this new setup, so the changes shouldn’t make life any easier for hackers and annoying little identity thieves.
The features mentioned above will soon be available on Android, iOS and the web. However, Meta has not given a specific time as to when it will be universally available. It did, however, suggest it may bring the tech to WhatsApp and other entities under its purview.
