    Hey Guys

    After many years having a passive attitude towards IM and SEO I finally decided to take action by creating an Instagram page (one of many) that I'll use to hopefully create an e-commerce empire.

    The problem I'm facing right now is due to the fact that instagram disallowed 3rd party apps to show a view of our feed. And this is a problem because that's exactly how I was scrapping the photos that I repost in my account ( I was using iconosquare).

    Do you guys now of any alternative (preferably free, for now) to efficiently find photos relevant to ones niche?

    Thanks!

    If no other option arises I'll go with this option, Thank you @W9go
    Is just that it was so much more easier,faster and convenient to follow niche related pages and then directly be able to chose from the best directly from the feed :/

    Instagram just followed the same what was done in Facebook few months back.
    Iconosquare is fast in this process I was checking websta.me yesterday and it was totally down.
    Just download the photos from rival accounts directly instead of going with 3rd party service.
    Or you can check member download section someone shared a image scraper that pulls images from google, pinterest and instagram

    Cheers

    I think i'll join the pro version of iconosquare as it allows for a custom feed of up to 150 followings. But I still would rather a free way to do the scrapping efficiently ( and preferably without limit)
    Thank you for the advice @XxUnivaxX! Do you have any more info about that scraper, I've been looking around but couldn't find it :/
