Instagram Graph API

The Instagram Graph API allows apps to access data in Instagram Business Accounts and Instagram Creator Accounts. By using the API, you can build apps that help Businesses and Creators manage their photos, videos, stories, albums, comments, and hashtags at scale, as well as measure social interactions with other Instagram users.


  • The API cannot be used to access non-Business or non-Creator Instagram accounts. If you are building apps for non-Business or non-Creator Instagram users, use the Instagram Platform API instead.
  • Content Publishing can only be used on behalf of Instagram Business Users.
