Collected content

Instagram is no longer sharing all the post information to protect their end users privacy. Because of this reason, an Instagram Post collected by the Mentions Stream Filter will display:

  • The username as Unknown User.

  • Default avatar instead of the original.

  • Handle is displayed.

  • The date and time when the post was collected by Flowics and not when the post was published by the user on Instagram.
