Our Instagram scraper is here!

Big day for a small side-project!

We've been experimenting with crawling social networks for a little while and spent the whole last week creating a profile scraper for Instagram to see if we have the capacity of doing scraping at scale.

If you are a digital marketer, have a look, and don't forget to leave feedback!

      Thanks! I'm closely watching the LinkedIn vs scrapers case, for example this just came out yesterday: https://www.theverge.com/2019/9/10/20859399/linkedin-hiq-data-scraping-cfaa-lawsuit-ninth-circuit-ruling
      Which is a very good sign for every SEO software out there.

      Additionally, the data scraped by my bots is not getting re-distributed, re-published or sold.
