Today, a new Hashtag Search feature for Businesses on Instagram is launched!
With this new feature, businesses will still be able to discover content, measure the reach of their marketing campaigns, and understand public sentiment around their brand. However, Instagram will now be limiting the number of unique hashtags that can be pulled by businesses per-week, content per-request and removing “username” from fields returned.
The new Instagram Graph API features includes:
Allows businesses to find public photos and videos that have been tagged with a #hashtag relevant to their Business Account.
Help businesses access and analyze valuable metrics about their Instagram business profile to optimize the performance of organic content on Instagram.
A subset of Instagram Graph API endpoints and Webhooks that allow you to identify public captions, comments, and media in which your Business Account alias has been tagged or @mentioned.
Enable businesses to more efficiently interact with their audience through comments under their media on Instagram: reply to comments, delete comments, hide/unhide comments, and disable/enable comments on your Business Account’s media object.
Allows you to get basic metadata and metrics for other Instagram Business Accounts.
Content Publishing (in Beta): Available through Facebook Marketing Partners and Instagram Partners only. Post an image to Feed with or without a caption.
Deprecated from the Instagram API Platform on December 11, 2018:
To post and delete any comments on a user’s behalf. This includes posting and deleting comments on a user’s own media.
To read any public profile info and media on a user’s behalf (this includes Hashtag Search and Location information)
