If you are an active user of Instagram and often use third-party apps, you start thinking about alternatives. Change the social network application programming interface (API) and prevents access to user data, reports Rus.Media.
What is known
Instagram has reduced the time during which a third-party program can “pull” information from user accounts. Now they can carry only 200 requests per hour, instead of 5 thousand, as earlier. Some programs will be completely disconnected from Instagram due to changes in the API.
The news will be painful for those who use a third-party program to analyze the popularity of “hashtag” or check the fans on the account. Due to new regulations application will simply not do their job. Once the service crosses the limit of requests, it is disconnected from Instagram.
