Instagram scraping question

I’d like to scrape all data of shared posts in instagram messages into airtable.

An example of this would be:
Let’s say there is a message thread on instagram between myself and a friend. In this message thread, we forward eachother many many posts and reels from instagram.
I’d like to be able to pull all these into airtable, and also scrape the following:

  1. URL of the reel/post
  2. URL of the profile/account that posted that reel/post
  3. view count
  4. like count
  5. comment count
  6. description and caption written in that reel/post
  7. screenshop of the thumbnail
    each of the above should go into a cell in a row.

Could someone please provide help with this?
Thank you very much!

Hi @Flyingeagle, Welcome to the Bardeen Community :slight_smile:

Good news, I believe this is possible with Bardeen.

Here’s how I would approach it:

  1. From the message thread URL, run a the below Bardeen playbook to insert all of the URLs inside of a Google Sheet:
    Shared Playbook Template

  2. Go into the Google Sheet and sort the URLs, then separate the /Posts and /Reels URLs into two separate Columns.

  3. Create another Playbook to scrape all details from both the /Posts and /Reels URLs from the Google Sheet.

  • if you get stuck on this part, please publicly share with edit rights the Google Sheet and I’ll help you further.

I hope this helps!
Thank you,

Hi @Jess
Thanks for the response.
Do you mind making the template for Airtable?
Most of our contents are on airtable and I don’t use Google suite too much.
Tried building it myself but couldn’t make it work. Thanks in advance!
