You can use Instagram insights to make the most of your business or creator account and start posting content that resonates the most with your target audience.

 

Where Can I Find My Instagram Analytics?

There are two places to find Instagram Insights - on your profile's Insights section or on a specific post of your choosing. You can follow the steps below to access your Instagram analytics from the Instagram app.

To Access Instagram Analytics

Analytics are only available for Business or Creator accounts. If you have a personal account and want to switch your account type follow the steps below:

  1. Tap your profile icon in the bottom-right corner of the app.
  2. Tap the three horizontal lines in the top-right corner.
  3. Choose "Settings" from the menu.
  4. Select "Account."
  5. Scroll down and tap either "Switch to Professional Account" or "Switch to Creator Account"

 

Once your account is set to a Creator or Business account, follow the steps below:

  1. Tap your profile icon in the bottom-right corner of the app.

  2. Tap the three stacked lines in the top right corner.

  3. Tap Insights.

To Access Instagram Post Insights For A Specific Post

  1. Visit your profile page and tap on a post.

  2. Tap "View Insights" below the post.

  3. You will then be able to see metrics such as likes, comments, and shares.

Note: Instagram analytics are only available for a certain period (up to 30 days for some metrics).

 

Can I View Analytics For Other Instagram Accounts?

 

No, you will only be able to access Instagram analytics for an account that you have administrative access on.

 

However, you can view public metrics for an Instagram account that you do not own if the owner has set these metrics to public. This includes likes, views, comments, comment likes, comment replies, and followers.
