    Someone knows a BOT that could help me build an awesome LIST of 1 MILLION usernames based on the following filters: usernames who follows determined IG accounts AND ALSO have posted some picture with determined hashtags ???

    Hello, we just released a brand new version of the MB Ingram Edition & the MB Ingram Advanced Edition, the MB Ingram Advanced Edition's Module 2 Scrape bot is what you need, during testing I have scraped lists as large as one and a half million users. You can do exactly what your looking for with our software.

    It is definitely possible, however you would need API key(s) to do that.

    Yes absolutely, but if your trying to achieve such a large numbers of scraped users, it's recommended
    that you use the function called "Scrape By Keyword >> Users That Liked". You will also have to use
    the delay settings so your not requesting to many pages to quickly.

    Wow. Just update to new version. Lots of new goodies. Need to watch video for the new stuff.

    I just scraped 22K users with no delay. Exact count of what I asked it to do too.

    I'm glad it's working great for you. You should take a look at the Automation Succession mode and the Automate Same User Mode in the MB Ingram Advanced Edition. It's now possible to take one user, and follow them, then like up-to 20 of their images, and comment on up-to 20 of their images, then the software will take another user and do it all over again. I recommend following them then liking 3 to 8 of their images and commenting once. It's also best to set the End Succession Comments to 50 and then start them back up after a while has passed.

    Hi, guys. How long it would take to compile a list of 10k users?

    Seems like must-have to use with other tools like FL and not only :cool:

    Btw, which one should I use to scrape users with a certain number of followers and follows or the ratio of (the number of followers / number of follows) ? Cannot wait to get my hands on this ))) Thanks !

    When I scraped my 22K, it finished in less than 30 min with no delay added.

    I don't follow your last question. Atm, how I am scraping my list is find a user with loads of followers base on my niche and select 'scrape users followers' to scrape their followers.

    I think it's not so necessary to do what I asked, but thanks!

    Ugh, I should have seen this before I bought my Instagram bot. MB Ingram Edition seems a great tool as well!

    It would all depend on what function you are using to scrape the list and how active the keywords are that you are using to scrape. For instance, if you use the function called "Scrape By Keyword >> Users That Liked" and the keyword that you are targeting has a lot of active likes, then you would be able to gather a list much faster. Should take no longer than 10 mins, depending on your keywords. At this time the software does not support ratios, but because you are interested in this function, and I believe it would be beneficial to everyone, I added this function to my to-do list for the next update.

    Thank you for the compliment, hope you enjoy it!


    Hope to have you as a part of our community soon!

    Thank you for attention! I really think that this possibility will be useful for anyone who is interested to get (scrape) the list of valuable users more easily.
    Also I think that is may be useful to ignore private accounts when scraping, if it doesn't already done.

    There are also some other suggestions that can make your tool get more top-quality functions, but I don't know how easy it would be for you to manage. Why don't you have your personal thread here for suggestions and questions?

    Hello, I would love to hear your suggestions on new features and settings, I have been getting a lot of great feed back for the new version and already have a good list of new settings and functions to add to the software and would love for that list to get bigger.
