    Why you did not use Scrapy frame work for scrapping? isn't it better to use for scrapping? And there are some limitations of beautiful soup and scrappy when website tries to render the javascript & signing in, so here selenium web driver comes to solve this issue, we can use selenium for rendering of javascript pages & signing in facebook and instagram to scrape the data or whatever we want.
