Instagram Follower List << I would like to scrape the followers no this account. If you click on the number of followers, it opens a pop up and the pop up needs to be scrolled down to scrape. How do I do this?

I understand that it might take a lot of time to scroll until the end. In such case, is it possible to stop at lets say 10k followers?

Did you found out a solution for your post ?

Instagram is a bit harder and and you will need some advanced tricks. Notably, site uses a separate scroller for the popup window. You will need to use an undocumented scroller parameter to select the right scroll element, as described in a posting by @martins :

The sitemap below will properly scroll the Followers popup and stop at around 133 followers. You can change the number in the scroller selector
ul li:nth-of-type(n+4):nth-of-type(even):nth-of-type(-n+133)
The final number of followers is always higher because of the way the scroller shows more followers at the bottom.

The scroller parameter I added is:
,"scrollElementSelector": "div > div:contains('Followers') + div"

The algorithms Instagram uses can be tricky sometimes

The list of your Instagram followers is chronological. At the top of the list, you'll find your most recent followers. The very bottom of your followers list you can find your first followers (if they still follow you).

Meanwhile, the list of who you're following is based on mutual interaction: Whose posts you like, who likes your posts, if you comment on each other's posts, tag each other, DM each other, etc. However, when you view a user's following and follower list in Safari, the order is chronological clear all insagram queary.

Have you ever used this tool before It's a great one if you want to hide your activity on Instagram and to be anonymous in stories feed.
