6th April 2018
I’m very sorry to say that due to unforeseen and sudden changes made by Facebook to the Instagram API, I have had to make the very difficult decision to shut down Magi Metrics. On the 30th of March without warning, Instagram dropped the number of requests API developers could make from 5000 to 200 requests per token per hour. And on the 4th of April without warning, Instagram shut down the majority of their API endpoints. Facebook have also closed applications to their new Instagram Graph API. Although Facebook had previously announced some changes to their APIs in advance and which I knew about, these new changes were not anticipated.
Our engineers have advised that it’s no longer possible for us to get the data you need, and as a result, the only option is to shut down Magi Metrics. I appreciate that our service has created a lot of value, and this will cause a lot of disappointment. I’m very sorry we can’t keep it running for you.
If you are doing influencer marketing, you can use my other company www.moju.io. Moju provides a searchable database of 1.6 million Instagram influencers, with audience demographic reports. You can use Moju to find the right influencers for your influencer marketing campaigns.
As an existing Magi Metrics customer you can still view and download your Past Exports. However, we’ve had to disable everything else. We’ve cancelled the subscriptions of all of our customers, so no action is required.
Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
