Product ideas

I want to be able to see video views for a carousel album within Instagram.

We are a video company and many of our partners have started to post videos within a carousel on Instagram.  Currently we are only able to see engagement metrics, impression, and reach for carousels.  We do not have a way to see video views.

    Hi Thomas, so I quickly checked back with my coworker. The situation is that Instagram doesn't offer Insights for carousel posts via their API. While in their documentation they reference additional insights for carousel posts, the numbers there are for the whole post, not per child of the carousel, and equal to the default post level insights. Video views for carousel posts are per default 0.
