    So, are you able to pull data like email addresses, etc from an instagram promotion with your app? Or just the feed of # photos? Can’t one still just go on instagram and do a # search to see all photos with that #? Thanks!

      You can try to search by hashtag, but unless you are approved by Instagram to use their API, your search may only bring back a subset or portion of results, and it can be a tedious process. Use of the API, or our MK social tracker will provide you with a full database of entries, with links to each photo, captions and hashtags used, as well as date of the post, the user name, and any public user data. Gathering this full information is a much more complete way to go!
