Target Instagram media tagged with a geolocation

Targeting media by locations means that your IGplan Activity will interact with other Instagram accounts based on the geolocations you add.

IGplan works best when you select high quality locations that fit your niche. Learn more about researching Instagram locations here.


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 under Targeting.

Then, scroll down to the Locations section of your Activity page and click the Add button.

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 multiple times without needing to close the popup. Simply click the box next to the location you want, and continue searching and adding locations.
