Download Instagram Comments

Due to Instagram restrictions, our standard reports DO NOT include all post comments, and we can only provide a download of the latest comments.

  • Latest comments: the most recent comments on Instagram posts at the time of your report. Due to Instagram limitations, this will be up to 120 comments per post.

Our bespoke team can help you index more primary comments for selected posts or date ranges. Exporting all comments will take longer and cost more than standard Analytics reports. Please use the Live Chat or send us an email to understand more about indexing Instagram comments, the limitations, and the opportunities available.

1. How do I start exporting Instagram Comments?

Export up to 120 comments from every Instagram post with BirdSong Instagram Analytics.

Just follow these 5 easy steps:

  1. Use the search bar to preview the chosen Instagram accounts
  2. Select the Instagram account you want, check the price and report run time
  3. Add to basket, register your account with a few simple details and pay with a credit/debit card
  4. We will email the report and comment export to you when they are ready
  5. Open the comment export in Excel, Pages or upload to Google Sheets
  6. Speak to our team before buying if you need *all* comments from particular posts


2. Is there a limit to the number of comments I can export?

There is a limit of 120 recent comments per Instagram post. With our standard reports, you will receive up to 120 of the latest comments from every post on your chosen account. You will not get all the comments from every post. Talk to our team (use Live Chat ) if you want all the comments from specific posts. We can help but there may be additional costs and running time.

3. Can I run comment exports on any Instagram account?

Yes, BirdSong Analytics has been designed to analyze any public Instagram account. We can index all of the current posts from your chosen account. If an account is marked as private we will not be able to access their posts or comment data. You don’t need to be the account owner to access these downloads. This is one of our many USP’s.

4. Can I download Instagram comments to .CSV?

Yes, Instagram provides the comment data in a textual format. We take that data and convert it into .CSV which is easily downloadable. A standard .CSV can only handle 65,000 rows (newer versions can handle millions but we need to work for everyone). Depending on the size of comment exports we may provide multiple .CSVs available in a zip folder.

5. Can I download Instagram comments to Excel, Numbers or Google Docs?

We provide .CSV downloads for each Instagram account export which is compatible with Excel, Numbers, and Google Sheets. You can save this directly to your desktop. The .CSV can be opened in Excel, Open Office, Pages or uploaded to Google Docs, Dropbox or cloud storage of your choice. Make sure you open the file in your chosen software. Importing it may sometimes break the column separation.

6. Can you handle foreign language comments?

Our Instagram exports can handle international languages including Arabic and Cyrillic languages. Depending on your software, Excel may not present the characters in their correct format. Try uploading the file to Google Docs which usually works!

7.  Can I export Instagram followers?

Yes, you can. With every Instagram report, you will receive the full list of followers and following of your chosen account(s). See which data points are available when exporting Instagram followers here.
