    Hi all

    Im looking for an IG scraper that can find users by location. Either paid or free. I found one here (not allowed to post links yet) thread title [h=2]GET] SCRAPE & FILTER MILLIONS USERNAME FROM USERNAME OR LOCATION in 10 MINUTES[/h]but it no longer seems to work. I'm trying to find local IG users to connect with. if anyone knows of a similar scrapper please let me know. Thanks

    If by a specific location you mean that you know location_pk, then yes, FL can do that.

    If by a location you mean coordinates + N miles/km around, then FL cannot do that simply because FL has no access to the database of all locations available within that region. I have a database, but nobody ever requested such services.

    Yeah I was just looking for a scraper for specific locations which seems like I will get FL for. But being able to scrape from coordinates and around sounds useful too. Probably not possible but is there a way to scrape from age and gender aswell?

    Yeah FL is the way to go. I haven't seen any tool out there that lets you scrape from coordinates and around.

    Coordinates + N miles/km around is not a task for FL. Simply because first you'll need to know which locations are around? This list cannot be obtained from Instagram. In my database they are already stored. Ok assume, you've got a list. It will be like 1k locations. Now you'll need to deliver your actions to users while they are online. It means you'll need to constantly monitor 1K locations which can be accomplished by many accounts simultaneously. 1000/10 = 100 accounts are needed. Age, gender and home location are also possible. Approximately same number of accounts.

    As you see it is a money-consuming task available to those who pay.
