Instagram has become one of the most popular social media platforms of late, and it’s only getting bigger. People like to follow popular accounts on their profile and connect with other like-minded folks. Alternatively, brand accounts also keep tabs on what their competitors are up to. You can do this by visiting the pages, and these are highlighted as likes or comments.

There are endless possibilities, but as of yet, there are no built-in tools that allow you to do that. We are going to find out if there is some automated method that enables you to do just that.
