Facebook Lead Forms No Longer Available with Instant Experience-
The ability to add lead forms to Instant Experience was a great option for social media managers to create unique experiences connected to lead collection efforts. You could also optimize for things other than lead generation, which was great for split testing and targeting smaller audiences. But, no more!

“As far as Iโ€™ve seen, there are no ways to circumvent this requirement, as Facebook has fully deprecated the feature. The bottom line: if you are using a Lead Form, you can only use the Lead Generation objective to run an ad associated with the form.” – Lucas Elliott, writing for Jon Loomer .com
