The Instagram API Has Become the Facebook Graph API

Comment moderation was also expanded in the new Instagram API

The student has become the teacher, as the Instagram API (application-programming interface) has been upgraded to the Facebook Graph API.

Instagram announced in July that businesses could tap into the metrics and insights available via the Instagram application through the Instagram Platform API following an update under which the Instagram API was built on the same stack as Facebook’s Graph API.

Software engineer Ravi Gummadi announced Thursday’s move in a blog post, saying, “Developers can increase their efficiency by utilizing the existing, comprehensive Graph API SDKs (software-development kits), receive technical support and monitor app activity with a set of dashboards.”

Gummadi said the new Instagram API is now available to all developers, and he said the API also contains new features enabling brands on Instagram to better track their presence on the platform and the performance of their organic content via third-party tools.
