  1. Hi, doesn’t Facebook’s required screencast feature now prevent the average user from using the social media Insta feature? Does Slider Revolution have a screencast available?

  2. I was able to connect my IG account but clicking on my name doesn’t bring up my page? Is there a settings I’m missing?
