I suggest you ...

Add Instagram to the Social Portal!

We're a design firm, so naturally our audience appreciates visual stimuli - Instagram is a great place to communicate & engage. It would be nice to plug our account into HubSpot :)

        I'm for this! We're adding Instagram to our social channels for posting and advertising so this would be a major plus for us!

        Hi all,

        We've been following the announcement and are looking into the capabilities of the new Ads API that Instagram released. However, the integration that Hootsuite has released is in essence a reminder and draft system, definitely handy for remembering to post on Instagram, but not exactly 'scheduling' either. It is also right on the border of Instagram's API Terms of service, so before investing resources in building a solution that includes Instagram, we want to ensure that they sanction this kind of integration. Thanks for your patience, and I'll continue to update progress here.

        Best,
        Lars Osterberg

        I believe Instagram has just opened up the advertising API. It seems that this would also allow third party apps to post? Hootsuite has just announced support for this. Is Hubspot to follow soon?

        Adding Instagram would be hugely beneficial and most companies are using Instagram regularly just as they would with any other social channels. Thank you!

        Please add Instagram!! I can't believe more people aren't asking for this. More and more businesses are using Instagram for marketing and seeing a lot of success with it.

        Instagram is a MUST for any marketing firm that wants to work with visual. It's an app that is popular among many demographics, but is overwhelmingly popular (of course) with the 15-35 crowd. These are people who are browsing the internet consistently, making decisions about primary care providers and other integral decisions/purchases when they go out on their own. To have an Instagram plugin available directly on Hubspot would really be a game changer for roping in that younger demographic and attracting those who are visual and artistic as well.

        We have already begun implementing Instagram for several accounts, and I would love to be able to link those accounts to Hubspot pages.

        We still dont have API access. A google search doesn't pull up any references to Hootsuite support for this either. Please email me at arajaram at hubspot dot com if you are able to share some screenshots. This will help us understand the feature and follow-up with our partners.

        Thank you

        I agree with previous comments - adding Instagram would be a huge asset. Are there any new leads on how to integrate this feature?

        The last update from you guys said, "Unfortunately, we are unable to support Instagram until there is an API that lets us post to Instagram." HootSuite has this ability now, so it looks like the API will allow for it. Am I right on that? This is one of the main reasons my social media department is using HootSuite still instead of HubSpot.
