Instagram made an announcement back in January of this year that they would be deprecating their API Platform and offering data access through the new Instagram Graph API, effective December 11, 2018.
These changes in data access instituted by Instagram will apply to every vendor, not just Crimson Hexagon. Of particular importance to brands and agencies, Instagram will no longer provide an API to specify a hashtag and analyze all public Instagram posts using that hashtag.
At Crimson Hexagon, we are following this situation closely, so we can inform our customers of the implications, and how they can best get value out of Instagram data in the future.
On this page, we will be providing updates and more information on the Instagram changes.
