Mention has the ability to monitor the Instagram platform in a few unique ways:

  • Keyword Monitoring: monitor the captions of Instagram posts

  • Monitored Pages: fetch all new posts from Instagram Business profiles

In this article, we will go over each method of monitoring available in your account.

Instagram Source - Keyword Monitoring

Within an Alert, you will see Instagram listed as a Source. This means that Mention will fetch posts from public profiles or business pages when the caption of the post matches any hashtags or keywords that are written in your search.

Mention will fetch photos or reels into your account and display a preview of the post in your Feed. If you click on the post, you will be able to open the original post on Instagram:

❗️Mention does not monitor the following posts on Instagram:
