Some people avoid spending too much time on social networks when they consider those social networks a distraction that is not worth their time.

Still, those who want to follow specific profiles would prefer following those profiles if they did not have to go daily to the profile pages.

This package provides a solution that sends email messages only when new posts of specific Instagram profiles are published.
