The cherry on top? You can get all this data in raw HTML or structured JSON. Choose whichever output format you fancy.

What is Social Media Scraping API good for?

Looking to track trends, monitor user behavior, or uncover hidden opportunities? There’s a lot to be learned from social media. However, collecting data manually could be a burden, so we created a tool for you to save you time and effort. 

You can scrape Instagram and TikTok data for such purposes as social media intelligence, influencer marketing, academic research, lead generation, sentiment analysis, audience engagement, and market trend analysis.

Whether you're a business looking to stay ahead of the competition or a freelancer looking to gather insights on a particular topic, our Social Media Scraping API can help you with that.

How good is Social Media Scraping API?

Our Social Media Scraping API is state-of-the-art. It includes not only a data parser and a powerful scraper but also these hot feats:

  • 100% success rate. If the first request (for whatever reason) fails, the API will keep working on it till it delivers – you’ll pay only for successful ones. 
  • Synchronous & asynchronous requests. Choose between real-time and on-demand data gathering.
  • Easy integration. Check out our documentation, GitHub, and Postman collections for guidance.
  • Browser fingerprints. The integrated browser fingerprint technology ensures that our tool bypasses advanced anti-bot systems.
  • Built-in proxies. 65M+ residential, mobile, and datacenter proxies guarantee you’ll avoid any CAPTCHAs and IP blocks that might come your way during scraping.
  • Headless scraping. Forget about asynchronous loading, endless scrolling, or any other browser headaches. Gathering data from any complex website is a piece of cake for this API.
  • API Playground. Create an account on our dashboard and give this tool a test drive for free.
