Now You Can Schedule Posts with the Instagram Graph API

Last year, we began the process of updating the Instagram API to the Instagram Graph API, built on the Facebook Graph API. This change helps businesses manage their organic presence more effectively. Today, we're introducing new features to the API, such as allowing businesses to schedule photo posts, view posts they've been tagged in and view other business profiles.

This adds to the previously introduced Instagram Graph API features like view organic insights and comment moderation. These added features allow for better content planning and secure account management, removing the need for employees to share login credentials to gain account access to insights or create a post.

To get started with scheduling posts, please work with one of our Facebook Marketing Partners or Instagram Partners.

The scheduling and publishing of Instagram content has been the number one request for our 16 million customers. Now, they can manage large volumes of content, multiple team members and multiple Instagram accounts with ease and security. Hootsuite is excited to partner with Instagram to make this happen.

Ending Support for the Instagram API Platform

Instagram is committed to providing our developer community with the best tools to support businesses on the platform and will continue to add new features to the Instagram Graph API. To give developers time to migrate to the Instagram Graph API, we will begin ending support for the Instagram API Platform by early 2020.
