    Is there a way to scrape users based on a keyword in their username regarding instagram? I own both FL and MP but their software does not seem capable of doing so. For instance if I wanted to scrape users with "dog" in their username, is that possible?

    That is not possible with FL or MP. You should use another Instagram scraper.

    Sure you can with FL.
    Set Scrape User, Advanced Search = Yes, In scrape Users screen set Normal Search = Dog.
    Let the software run for a while, stop it and then get the list of accounts from Scraped Results//Data screen --> Scraped Users.
