How get social media follower count?

Hi Zeroqode Community,

Any idea how to get the number of followers for a user’s social media accounts (Tik Tok, FB, IG, etc)? Any plugin ideas or web scrapping?

As a web scrapping example:
It is possible to get the user details from instagram with the link: https://www.instagram.com/[Username]/?__a=1 however, how could we get the information back into bubble?

Here’s the info from the link needed:

Hello, @jasonturo
Thanks for your question.

I’m afraid, that we don’t have the plugin, which will allow you to count the connected users.

However, you can try to set the next condition.
Use the “Do a search for” and then set filter parameters so that it only includes users who’ve signed up via Instagram (as an example). Depending on how you store this data in your database, perhaps it would be “ConnectedInstagram = yes”) and then at the end add “: count” so that it’ll show the number of people who meet those conditions.

Also, you can take a look on the Bubble Marketplace for a specific plugin: Marketplace | Bubble

Hope it will help you.
Best regards,
