Once you've connected your Instagram account to Flowbox, you can add Instagram as a source to your Flows by following these steps:
Navigate to 'Visual Marketing' > 'Flows,' select the desired Flow, and click on 'Settings' in the bottom-left menu.
Click on 'Create'.
Select 'Instagram' as the social media platform to fetch content from.
Select the type of source (hashtag, username, mentions, photo tag). See the descriptions of different types of sources below.
Add the value for that type of source.
After adding a source, all new Instagram content will appear in the Inbox of this Flow and can be moderated and used for your Flows.
Instagram source types
Collects public Instagram media from your own connected account. Flowbox will also collect and display the caption, username and user profile image.
Collects public Instagram media that @mentioned your connected Instagram account. Flowbox will also collect and display the username and caption, but not the user profile image.
Collects public Instagram media that have tagged your connected Instagram account on the post. Flowbox will also collect and display the username and caption but not the user profile image.
Collects public Instagram media that include a specified hashtag. Flowbox will collect and display the caption of the post but not the username and user profile image.
To set up the hashtag source in your Flow, enter the hashtag without the '#' symbol.
You will not collect duplicate posts in Flowbox if someone tags your brand and uses your hashtag too for example. You will also be able to find the content when you filter for photo tags and hashtags in the search bar in your Inbox.
Additionally, if an already-collected post gets collected via a mention-source Flowbox will update all the occurrences of that post with the additional information that is collected via mentions (e.g. comments, username).
To exclude posts from the collected posts that contain certain words or hashtags, you can additionally use the 'Filters' settings. Read more about our blocked hashtag feature here.
Collect older content
Flowbox can only collect new content that is posted on Instagram after adding a new source, due to API restrictions. To collect older content, we recommend installing our Chrome Extension.
