Only three Instagram metrics?

Hi 


Now I've used the Instagram connector for the first time, but i'm surprised that there are just three metrics: Followers, Posts and Follows - and only for the last seven days without comparing data for the period before.


Have i overlooked something or is it all for Instagram? I'm missing reach impressions, engagement, top posts, etc.


Thank you for helping,


Best,

Stefan

  • Hi Stefan,

    The current Instagram connector we have is using the simpler public data API, which doesn't have hardly anything analytics related available in it. However, we are working on a proper Instagram Insights connector using the better API Facebook instantiated for it, and that is currently in the internal testing stage. It should be out in the coming months, before FB deprecates the original API in July.

  • Instagram Insights is possible: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/instagram-api/insights


    At what point of time we can choose it in the google sheets ? 

  • Hopefully sometime in the near future! The early deprecation of the original API after Cambridge Analytica and the temporary closure of the approval queues a while ago meant that we couldn't get our replacement connector approved right away. They did reopen eventually and we've been waiting in the approval queue for a long time, but Facebook is tight lipped about when reviews are to be done. We just have to wait our turn.
