    Hi there, I'm a noob at Instagram but have a developer who works for me. For follow/unfollow, I was wondering how to get to a users followers on Instgram on the desktop version. The only way I see is to search for a keyword/hashtag and follow the people who post using that keyword/hashtag. Is there a way to access peoples followers?

    Thanks in advance.

    Their API will allow you to do that, you'd have to develop a small app and get it approved first though. I haven't personally done it so I'm not sure how strict the whole process is.
    check out /developer/authorization on their site, those are the permissions you can get.

    That amount of effort is worthless, it's more profitable to just go out and buy a bot.

    You could / should use private api for your bot. Then you can scrape and do all actions via privapi calls.

    Let me know if you need help

    If you don't use API then websites like webstagram will help a lot!
