Due to the fact that different platforms have different APIs, some of our EmbedFeed functionalities are limited by them.

In this article, we will inform you about these limitations.

Facebook’s API limitations:

  • Facebook’s API only allows you to pull posts from a Facebook page you manage (for which you have active permissions).

Instagram’s API limitations:

  • The Instagram account username gets generated only if the Facebook account which manages the Instagram account is connected in EmbedSocial. Otherwise, it does not get generated and displayed into the Instagram feed since the Instagram API doesn’t return this for privacy policy reasons.

  • When you create an Instagram hashtag feed in EmbedSocial for example #embedsocial, the system automatically pulls 20 Top Posts and 20 Most Recent posts posted in the last 24 hours.

Twitter’s API limitations:

  • Only public tweets get generated on our platform.

  • There is a limitation on the number of tweets that can get generated, and the limitation is Tweets from the last 7 days.

  • There is a limitation on the number of posts that get generated, for example, if there are 100 posts on Twitter, only the last 20 get generated in EmbedSocial.

YouTube’s API limitations:

  • We cannot pull live videos on our platform.

  • The moment you create the feed only the last (*newest) 20 videos will be generated in EmbedSocial.

Vimeo’s API limitations:

  • The moment you create the feed only the last (*newest) 20 videos will be generated in EmbedSocial.
