    Posted this in instagram section but I didnt get a response. I am learning python thought it would be fun to put it to use. Has anyone on here written an instagram bot in python?


    Using iconosquare with selenium to login then scrape info to lxml. Maybe use a GUI?


    One feature I really am interested in is how well different comments convert.
    "Comment x" posted on this list of users how many start following after getting the comment


    Maybe create stacks of like and comment to get a higher conversion rate. Seems more natural than just liking or just commenting.


    I just wanted to see if anyone had attempted something like this.

    Yeah Ill be on the look out for some skype groups to join. My plan is to just try to build it and then when I run into issue ask for help from stackoverflow. Seems like most people on this forum are not into the programming side.
