If your work involve managing your company’s Instagram account, then Spatulah is going to be useful for you. Created by local Social Media Agency, GoodStuph, this tool will help you extract comments from an Instagram Post into an excel spreadsheet.

This is great if you are running a contest on Instagram and need to extract all the entries in the comment section. All you need to do is supply the URL link to the Instagram post.

I guess the folks at GoodStuph must be tired of manually extracting Instagram comments for their clients. (I swear I didn’t make them do such mundane stuff when they were my agency) This tool is great for all social media managers.
Instagram can be painful to use for companies. There’s not much open API available. Most social media management platform aren’t able to support Instagram fully. As far as I know, there is no 3rd party tool that can pull out all the comments from an Instagram account and reply directly. You can’t even schedule an Instagram post currently.
Please lah Facebook/Instagram, do something about your API.
Well, at least Spatulah help make it less painful when managing an Instagram account.

Woke up this morning finding my Facebook Newsfeed flooded with 3D photos. Yeap, Facebook is rolling out 3D photos (and I still haven’t got that feature on my account yet)

The 3D photos makes use of the depth maps that are stored with “Portrait” photos taken on iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus, X, XS or XS Max. For the best results, make sure your main subject is 90 to 120 cm away and try to capture scenes with multiple layers of depth including something in the foreground and something in the background. You’ll get more of the 3D effect when your photo’s subject has contrasting colours.
So go have fun and try some 3D photos on Facebook.
