Extract every comments out of a list of Instagram posts

Whoever is closest to his or her audience wins. In order to deliver the best content, product or service to your audience, you have to know what they think, like, not like, and so much more.

Too many brands assume what their audience likes. This API is here to validate, or better, invalidate, your assumptions and have scientific intelligence over reactions to your content.

Our tool will extract from a list of Instagram every single comments and all available information. What will you do with it: Spreadsheet statistics? Language analysis to find new keywords? Something else?

2. Add this Instagram automation to your account.

3. Click on Configure me!

You'll now see the 3 configuration dots blinking. Click on them.

4. Easy & safe authentication

This automation will connect to the website on your behalf. The safest and most efficient way for Phantombuster to authenticate as yourself is by using your session cookies.

To make that process as easy as possible you can use Phantombuster's browser extension. It's a 2-click installation.

If you're operating from another browser and/or want to do it manually, here is how to do it.

5. Specify which Instagram posts you want to scrape

Create a spreadsheet on Google Spreadsheet.

Fill it with Instagram posts URLs. One post URL per row, all in column A.

Make this spreadsheet public so Phantombuster can access it.

Paste the spreadsheet's URL to Phantombuster.

Start your automation!

You're all set. Just click "launch" to get your automation started!

Set this Instagram automation on repeat

Once your automation's configuration is ready, you can schedule repetitive launches. This will allow you to avoid rate limits, scrape more data and get your automated workflows to spread over days, weeks, even months.

To do so, go to your dashboard and look for your automation's “Settings” button.

Then, select a frequency:

And Save those new settings at the bottom of the page.
