Cerebro - A Database of Profiles
Discover a new audience in our database of ~2B profiles!
Cerebro is our central database of profiles. There are over 2 billion individual profiles on Instagram and Twitter, and the best part? You can access all of those profiles as if they were in your follower report!
How is Cerebro useful to me?
Cerebro can help you:
- Identify your “ideal follower” by filtering over 1B profiles based on their persona or brand affinity
- Target your audience growth to specific locations
- Find influencers and micro-influencers within the exact industry, location, and audience size to help you grow your brand
How Do I Find Cerebro?
Click on your search bar, then on the button for Twitter or Instagram Cerebro.
The list of profiles will show up. You’ll see that the default Sort is Most Followed, and that each handle in the list will have its own corresponding Profile Information Card.
From the Cerebro homepage, we go up to Filters, and simply apply the filter criteria we're looking for.
Using filters we now have a targeted segment to start gathering insights:
The Summary Report offers high-level data- we can get some insights into how best to reach them, like what hashtags they’re using, what bio keywords they have in common, and when they’re most engaged on the platform.
This Summary Report, like we mentioned before, is dynamic. Update your filters, and the summary will change too- meaning there's no end to what you can explore!
Cerebro is an amazing resource to predict, target, and manage your growth, but it’s more than that- it's your secret weapon for discovery.
*Please note: Despite our best efforts, Surf Analytics will no longer be able to update Instagram data. Recently, Instagram changed its API significantly, incapacitating our ability to capture data. Since then, we've been working to document and modify our processes. Our developers have reached the conclusion that this is no longer feasible.
