These functions return the comments and user like data from a single post.

ig_get_media_comments(media_id, max_id = NULL, return_df = TRUE,
  paginate = TRUE, max_pages = 10, verbose = FALSE)

ig_get_media_likers(media_id, max_id = NULL, return_df = TRUE,
  paginate = TRUE, max_pages = 10, verbose = FALSE)



numeric; the unique id to identify a post which can be found in the id, not the pk field, of posts returned via many of the functions retrieving feeds.


integer; the unique id identifying the oldest post that you would want to retrieve in this function call


logical; do you want to return the results as a tbl_df with one row per entity or as a list with one element per entity?


logical; do you want to paginate through results or just return the first page?


integer; a limit to the number of pages to retrieve from paginated endpoints. Instagram feeds have the potential to paginate forever, so by default we stop after pulling 10 pages. If you would like more or less pages returned, then modify this argument.


logical; do you want informative messages?
