In an exciting announcement Instagram posted on their own business blog that scheduling posts will now be part of the Instagram Graph API.
This is great news but isn’t being rolled out to the public. The feature is exclusive to software developers using Instagram’s platform API like Cortex, Hootsuite, Sprout Social, etc.
Unlike Facebook or Twitter, this won’t be native to the product itself.
Of course if you work with an agency, like Pandemic Labs, all your weekend and 3am posting is covered. No need to worry and now all it means is that we don’t need to set an alarm to wake our Creative Director so he can do it.
