    Help a girl out here... I've looked through all threads I can find, read the FollowLiker user manual and emailed support, but I can't figure out how to format location queries.

    For example, if I want to scrape users who have posted at "The Beehive" a popular restaurant in Boston, do I use:
    1. Just the place name (there are multiple "The Beehive" locations on Instagram)
    2. Place name plus address (how do you format the address, as it appears on Instagram?)
    3. Just the address as it appears on Instagram
    4. Longitude/latitude points or "data-id" as Instagress seems to do (see attachment) Screen+Shot+2016-02-17+at+2.29.05+PM.jpg

    Big, big thanks in advance! :)

    None of the IDs you've shown on your screenshot represent actual Instagram IDs.

    Interesting, thanks so much! So if I searched the Instagram API as you did and found the location I was looking for how would I format the query in FollowLiker? Do you recommend using the long/lat points or the place ID number? As you can see there are like 3-4 places with the name "The Beehive".

    Big thanks again!
