Checking your Instagram activity metrics is important for performance optimization. Up until recently, Instagram didn’t give any statistics about your posts and account except for the number of likes, replies, and mentions of your profile.
This has changed with the introduction of the Instagram Business Account (very similar to Facebook Business) which gives you access to Instagram Insights. It, however, has some limitations. For example, you get the data for the last seven days only. Not long, right? It’s impossible to conduct a thorough analysis on such a short period of time. Also, when your Stories disappear, you lose their data. To understand your performance on Instagram, you need something extra, some external tool. Like Sotrender.
