Hi @adityareddy001 

 

Power BI doesn't have built-in connectors for twitter/facebook/instagram. To easily get data from these services and view analysis insights created by some third-party users/organizations, you can try the Power BI Apps provided by them. Some Apps are free to use. You can search them in Power BI Service. However I don't find any Apps for instagram currently.

If these Apps cannot meet your requirement and you want to connect to these services to create your own reports, you might use their APIs to get data. Every service has their own APIs for different purposes. You need to read their API documentations to learn about which APIs to use and how to use them. For example, 

GET followers/list | Docs | Twitter Developer Platform

How to Extract Data from Facebook using Graph API | by Cndro | Medium

Instagram APIs | Facebook for Developers

 

Using APIs sometimes requires that you have some developing knowledge. 

 

An alternative is that you can search to find some third-party connectors for these services developed for Power BI. They may make it easier to get data from the services. However third-party connectors are developed by third-party organizations/people so they are not always free.

Hi @adityareddy001

You might want to try windsor.ai that can import your data from all three sources: twitter, facebook and instagram into one place. Then you will be able to connect PowerBI to the imported data.
