Hey Sindhu,

You can use Web connectors and extract data from APIs.

Hello @sindhu_ibizcs,

You can either work with QlikWebConnectors (there are connectors for facebook/twitter/youtube)

However, as mentioned above, you can also work it out by using the REST connector in order to communicate with APIs.

Check these resources out:

Instagram Developer

Hope this helps
