Your possible audience ranges from individual developers to startups as well as Fortune 500 companies.

What else is new? We’ve been working on new and updated public Actors for you. Give them a try!

New public Actors

Facebook Pages Scraper (pocesar/facebook-pages-scraper)

Extract public profile information from Facebook pages and service listings. The Actor scrapes data from Facebook posts, comments, reviews, and more.

Coronavirus Stats Across the World (petrpatek/covid-19-aggregator)

We’re happy to see that the coronavirus APIs are gaining traction. This Actor aggregates data from all the Apify COVID-19 public Actors and unifies them in one overview dataset. Use it for your COVID-19 reports and overviews.

Updated public Actors

Instagram Scraper (jaroslavhejlek/instagram-scraper)

We recently released a new version of this Actor to fix an issue with capturing post comments. Now you can get back to enjoying that valuable data. Try it out to extract links to photos, comments, and detailed information about Instagram pages.

Slack Message Generator (katerinahronik/slack-message)

The new version is more user-friendly for non-developers and has an updated readme which describes the Actor and input types. Give it a try to send messages to Slack automatically. It can be used instead of email notifications and is ideal to combine with other Actors monitoring successful runs, errors, and more.

That’s all for now! For the latest news, follow us on Twitter.
