    I am wondering if it is possible to scrape the ID or usernames of all the people who commented on an Instagram page. Are there any bots or websites with the capability of this? This w vv w[do.t] ink2pixel [d.ot] c.0 m / assault is able to scrape some usernames, but I tried it on a picture with 2500 comments and it only retrieved 133 users... Not in ID format.

    So if there is a program/site to scrape usernames of commenters, is there another program/site that will change the usernames into ID format so that it can actually be used?

    what would be some practical uses of this feature? why would this feature be better than hashtags or followers of a user?

    In most people's cases, useless. In my case it would be very useful though.

    It would be somewhat easy to create a php script that talks to the instagram API. I'm on my mobile so I can't write in detail about the process, but PM me and when I'm back home I'll write up the process.

    I will update the ink2pixel toolkit later today to accommodate user ID formats and scrape more users.
