Creating an Instagram Tracker

Creating an Instagram Tracker is quick and easy. To begin a new Tracker, go to your Tracker listing page - (the bar graph icon at the top of your account). Click the "Start tracking" button, which will give you a drop-down menu, where you can select an Instagram profile.


First, select or create a Facebook connection. To talk to the Facebook Graph API for Instagram data, you'll need admin Facebook access to an Instagram business profile. 

Then, enter the username of the account you want to analyze. Again, this will need to be an Instagram business profile you have admin access to.

Pick a project if applicable, and select your time zone for reporting. 

Once you click the "Create" button, your new Tracker will begin by backfilling with historical data. All Trackers will start with data from the past 31 days, and will continuously collect new data in real time after that.
