Having crossed a monumental milestone of 2 billion monthly active users recently, Instagram is one of the biggest social platforms out there.  Knowing how to Instagram profile search is now a skill that a prudent sourcer really should lock down. However, there are a host of reasons why using their built-in search tool just doesn’t come close to cutting it. Gone are the days of infinitely scrolling through Instagram profiles, knowing deep down you’re on a fools errand. Good thing Dean Da Costa has found a solution to your social media hunting problem.

Instagram profile searching made easy

With such a massive user base, this visual-focused Instagram Profile Search site has an endless stream of potential candidates, more than any recruiter could ever wish to ask for. At the same, Instagram is also one of the most underutilized platforms when it comes to headhunting. What gives?  If you’ve ever tried searching on Instagram, you know why. There are very few filter options on the Instagram search platform, so it gets a bit messy and cumbersome to sift through. Frustratingly enough, the search bar on Instagram makes the proverbial needle in the haystack look fun and easy. 

That’s where Toolzu can help. It’s a simple and straightforward tool that lets you search Instagram profiles through an intuitive interface. Basically, all you need is to enter your target keyword and the tool will spit out pages after pages of profiles that match. You can even streamline your searches by using filters like:
