    Hello,

    In the past few days I tried to make new accounts and to try to understand why we receive fake followers.

    All the accounts I tried were new made and I hadn't any follower, any pic or description.

    I noticed that, tried with some different bots, that the IDs are not scaped from bots or anything else but from the images we like, so from the hashtags we like.

    This is not true. I will tell you why. Because the bot I use emulates the mobile app and does not use tokens. It is down to hashtags and the likes being scraped. Pretty simple It'd imagine. I think there is a bit more to it than that, but it is not using them sites that do it.

    Well I tried this on new accounts, as soon I pressed start on the bot I started receiving the fakes accounts.

    This is not just a coincidence, I used new accounts with 0 followers and 0 pics, no tags, nothing. And I tried it something like 10 times.

    You're right now I just tried again, even with a bot that works like mobile I keep getting fakes, so it's not the bot nor the client but the tags that we like.

    If you use the top 20 hashtags you will get around 1k of them daily.

    But if you don't use those top tags you will neither get real followers. :&

    I get bots even liking niche tags. I think it is hard to like tags because people tend to use 20 tags.. so even if you like a niche tag, you end up liking picutres with tags that are in top 100.

    In conclusion we can't run away from fake followers.

    And it was also accettable when he used 5-10 accounts per day. Now tell me what does this guy hope to do by sending the same identical promo pic 1000 times to the same guy. 5-10 were enough, no he instead of doing 5-10 for every guy, he does 1000time for the same person.

    Blackhatter? Well one of the most stupid I've ever seen. He doesn't even understand that doing like that he will earn less and most probably IG team will start working on this even sooner blocking his oppurtunity to do this.

    Ahh... that's what happen when stupid people put their hands on thing that they don't understand...

    Well see, it's not just one guy. It's sort of like a team promoting about 5-10 websites all owned by that group. I think it's not smart to do what they're doing, but the idea is not bad, and whatever bot they're using is pretty good.

    They're probably banking nothing I presume.

    My two cents.

    Yes. You right. Bots are coming from the images/Hashtags that you like. This way they target you.

    What ever bot he is using, it can do a mammoth task. I applaud it for that.
    I'm surprised it can make accounts so quick. It must be making multiple thousands a day.
    It's a shame it's not used correctly

    There are 2 types token based and account based , token based works like the old facebook like sharing sites like likelo etc , but they will be real and active . account based most of the times they will be created accounts without any activit but having profile pic , bio and photos sometimes followers too.
