No matter what I do, it shows my personal Instagram account and not my business account. Beyond frustrating. I just can’t wrap my head around it. I’ve authorized it about 20 times!

Peccato! 🙁 era tutto ok ma verificando dopo alcune ore, ho visto che nonostante avessimo aggiunto delle nuove immagini sul profilo instagram, la widget è rimasta ferma a quelle precedenti
