    Hello Blackhatworld.

    I want to create my own Instagram Bot.

    I have a few questions..

    1. What software do people use to create bots in?
    2. Is there any specific language used for bots?
    3. How would i start?

    I think the man wants to do the work himself.Always build your own bot if you know what you are doing.

    1. None. You might use some kind of REST client library. (Atom/Sublime Text/Visual Studio/anything as an "IDE")
    2. Most people do it in C#(GUI, Windows only) as a Windows application, but you can use C++, Python(possibly GUI, cross-platform), Java(cross-platform), whatever. Even PHP(cross-platform, not GUI) is applicable.
    3. Check source code of existing IG bots, get familiar with the way IG private API works etc. I hope you have some experience in programming, APIs, REST, proxies, cURL, (...).

    Will answer more questions on this topic if you want. :)

    If you wanna make an client based bot i would go with c#.net its very nice to work in and build nice GUI.
    If not maybe make a Website with some PHP/Python scripts.

    But my vote goes for c# And use Visual Studio.

    If you want to make a simple bot you could use iMacro or ubot depends what kind of bot you are after.
