DEPRECATION NOTICE: Foursquare Location IDs no Longer Supported in Instagram Managed Sources


#1

What’s Changing?

In their API Changelog, Instagram have announced that as of April 20th, 2016, they will be deprecating their foursquare_id and foursquare_v2_id parameters for the /location/search API endpoint.
DataSift used these parameters to allow our users to pull Instagram posts which checked in to a specific Foursquare location.

What do I need to do?

If you do not filter for your Instagram data based on Foursquare Location IDs, you do not need to take any action.
If you are using these Foursquare Location IDs, you will need to make the switch to latitude/longitude to preserve similar functionality.
Documentation for how use these other location-based filtering options can be found under our /source/create options documentation. You can use the /source/resource/add and /source/resource/remove endpoints, the /source/update endpoint, or the user interface to update your existing resources.
