Account throttling is definitely a thing!

    I was always dubious about people saying the get their account ghosted, but I think mine definitely has.

    My main account is at 25k ... I like between 1500-2000 pics a day through FL
    I been running a bot for 13 months... no issues and just liking users that follow big photo accounts (1million+) has always netted me 100-150 new follows a day.

    Anyway I posted a topless pic and censored it with little dots ... albeit flesh colored.... this wasn't good enough for IG and I received a warning. the took down the pic.

    I havent changed any settings and it still says I am liking the same amount... but since then I have only grown by 10 followers a day. This has been going on for a week. Something is definitely up and not a coincidence.

    Anyway just sharing my experience in case anyone finds it helpful.
    Be careful what you post!

    Hmm, good to know. You kinda got flagged. Let us know if you are back to 100 daily followers.

    Will do. I've paused the bot and gonna let it rest a few days.
    My engagement on pics hasnt really changed though. (posted 2 since then.) Still 400-500 likes.

    Can you PM me the photo so I can get an impression of Instagram policy? I have some accounts running for beauty girls.

    Just a suggestion, but check out the engagement group on Telegram. Search the boards. Crazy engagement since joining.

    Hello
    I don't think it's the issue here , many pics of mine have been deleted by instagram and i did'nt see in the long term a drop on my growth.

    So you dont follow/unfollow? You only like pictures? How does that give you 100-150 new followers though?
