Hi Liam

I have just recently tested the Instagram-R-package from Pablo Barbera and it worked. It's still under development, but all the basic API functions are working. You can find it on GitHub: https://github.com/pablobarbera/instaR

Betreff: [Air-L] Scraping from Instagram

Hello all,

I'm currently involved in a project looking at consumer responses to social marketing campaigns in social media. I've been asked to try and scrape some data from Instagram relating to a campaign account and hashtag (likes, text of comments, etc), however I'm not having much luck in doing that. It seems like a recent Instagram site redesign may have broken a number of the tools that would've been effective previously. Was just wondering if anyone here might be able to point me towards something which is still working? If possible, preferably something that can be used effectively without the user having a lot of knowledge or skill at programming.

Kind regards,
Liam Pomfret
