Instagram monitoring

Before being able to access any Instagram data via Awario, you will be required to complete 2 additional setup steps outlined below:

1. Add hashtags to monitor:

The first step to initiate Instagram monitoring is to add hashtags you'd like to get mentions of to the alert settings.

Note that the hashtags are not case-sensitive, so there’s no need to add the same hashtag with different casings.

2. Connect your Instagram business page to Awario:

The next step would be connecting an Instagram account to Awario. Please ensure that the account you’re trying to connect is a Business account that is linked and has admin permissions for an Instagram account you’d like to connect. For more information on Business accounts for Facebook and Instagram, see this article: Add or Remove Instagram From Your Facebook Page.

Once you’ve created an alert with hashtags added and Instagram enabled as a source, there'll be 2 ways to connect your account to Awario:

1. Via the Connect your Instagram page message in the mentions' Feed:

2. The account connection process can also be started by going to the Social Accounts tab in your project's settings:

In both cases, clicking the Connect button will redirect you to the Facebook sign in screen unless you’re already logged into Facebook on your current browser.

After you’ve successfully connected an Instagram business page, the Instagram monitoring setup is complete! All you need to do is allow Awario some time to collect the results.
