    So I have a store that sells stuff in the yoga niche. I am building my IG and want to do shoutouts, but other than manually copying and pasting every single person with "yoga" in their username, I don't know how to do this.

    Any of you smart people have a solution?

    Thanks!

    You could scrape users by hashtag, location or user's followers/followings. I have developed an Instagram scraper specifically for that purpose. Take a look at my signature for more information.

    Hey, so I checked out your tool. Is it possible to scrape the usernames in the @username format as opposed to the user ID which is just a bunch of numbers?

    Thanks

    Yes, it is possible. You choose whether you want the output to be user IDs or usernames.
