Get comments from a single Instagram post (or list of posts) that you have access to. You should only use formula this if your Instagram account is private and you want to privately collect comments about your own posts (as you may face copyright issues if you scrape non-public data). Therefore, this formula will require a
Session ID to work properly with (corresponding to the Instagram account you’re working on behalf of).
This formula contains a single workflow that can iterate through a list of Instagram post shortcodes and returns back the combined data from all comments into bulk CSV or JSON files.
Start by importing this formula, which will add the workflow to your account. You can then enter the Instagram post IDs you want to get the comments for in the input collection to see the execution preview, of what the workflow could do.
You can get the Instagram post IDs by first getting the
shortcode from the post’s public URL, e.g. for the post https://www.instagram.com/p/B3so54IpzW2/ the shortcode would be
B3so54IpzW2. Then the Instagram Post Details endpoint can get the Post ID from the shortcode.
