Target Instagram media tagged with a geolocation

Targeting Instagram users based on Locations is a great way to interact with Instagram users who have tagged their media with a geolocation.

It's important that you do your research to ensure that you're targeting high quality accounts. Instagress works best when you engage in high quality targeting.


Locations refers to the geolocations users have tagged their photos with. There is no guarantee these users reside in a specific area, as many tourists geotag their photos while traveling.

Select targeting source

In order to Like, Comment, or Follow based on Locations, select Targeting source: Locations in the Targeting. Then, scroll down to Locations to input all of the locations that you want to target.

It’s easy to search and add multiple Locations in the Add Locations popup. First, be sure to enable location access in the popup in your browser.

Next, search for a location, or zoom in and out of the map to find Locations. Then, check the boxes next to geolocations you want to add.


You can search again without needing to close the popup. When you’ve added all the Locations you’d like, scroll down and click the green Add button.


Targeting media by locations means that your Instagress Activity will interact with other Instagram accounts based on the locations you select.
