Can I post to Instagram from Socialdraft?


Facebook has announced that in order to secure their user's security, they are restricting access to the Facebook and Instagram APIs to all third-party applications including partners like Socialdraft.

Some of the API changes have restricted our ability to:

  • @mention Instagram users
  • Instagram comments
  • Follow / Unfollow users
  • Like posts
  • Check followers / unfollowers

You can still search hashtags and schedule posts and reposts through Socialdraft.

You can schedule posts to Instagram, but there is no direct posting due to the Instagram API restrictions. Socialdraft makes it easy for you to publish. We send you an SMS with your image and write up at the scheduled time of posting with a link to open Instagram.

You can have multiple people create the posts and you can have either one person or multiple people publish.
