Instagram Insights in Data Studio: profile followers


While generating a Data Studio Dashboard gathering info of our Instagram page, the number of profile followers isn't visible over a time period. In other words and more precisely when using the metric "Profile Followers" in a Time Series Diagram I would expect an increase of followers over time. 

Kind regards

  • Hi Jerome,

    Followers by time can unfortunately not be fetched from Instagram API, as there is no endpoint for this data on their side. Only "New followers" can be split by time.

  • Thanks for the reply Heidi!

    Do you have any knowledge or even an estimation whether this will be possible in the future? 

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately no estimate, as Instagram has not shared this information with us. Hope they add that to the API soon!
