Hey guys, The past months I've been working on some web scraping projects with node and I am starting to build bots, at this point I need some input from the community. Would you rather have a bot that uses the API? ex: instagram ENDPOINT UNSIGNED CALLS (PER TOKEN) SIGNED CALLS (PER TOKEN) POST /media/media-id/likes 30 / hour 100 / hour POST /media/media-id/comments 15 / hour 60 / hour POST /users/user-id/relationships 20 / hour 60 / hour Facebook I've found 600 calls per 600 seconds, per token & per IP Twitter Rate limits in version 1.1 of the API are divided into 15 minute intervals, which is a change from the 60 minute blocks in version 1.0. Additionally, all 1.1 endpoints require authentication, so no longer will there be a concept of unauthenticated calls and rate limits Having a bot that works with the API is way more safe of course but has a limit. or would you like a headless browser that mimics the user movement (for the nerds: with phantomjs /zombiejs maybe) Still as many of you have discovered there is still a limit! (spam reduction) My solution so far: A hybrid bot that scrapes blackhat and follows/likes users with the API. What would you guys like to see?
