    Okay so I've seen alot of varying information on this.

    I read that these are the hourly limits:
    ~500 likes
    ~60 comments
    ~200 follows
    ~200 unfollows

    How much of this is true?
    I know for a fact that the likes limit can't be just 500 an hour, I've been liking around 900 pictures an hour for the past few days, haven't even hit a captcha.

    As for the comments and follows, those limits seem reasonable.
    I usually don't follow/unfollow people because of the risk of getting banned.

    Anyone have any input on this?

    Hmm let's see.

    I auto-like a picture every 7 seconds which is the lowest safe delay.
    60 minutes × 60 seconds per minute =3600 seconds
    3600 seconds ÷ 7 seconds = 514.285714 Likes per hour

    So yes that is correct. About 500 per hour.

    I don't recommend following with a bot because you will pretty much always run into a captcha. Do it manually, you can follow 50/10 minutes.

    If you use InstaGet Pro, you can do unlimited unfollows per hour. I personally unfollow 1 per second
    Hope that helps a bit.

    Hmmm I see I see.
    I've been running my bot liking a photo every 4 seconds for the past 4-5 days.

    60 minutes x 60 seconds/minute = 3600 seconds
    3600 seconds / 4 seconds = ~900 likes per hour

    I've been doing this for a while now and haven't even hit a captcha or gotten a rate limit exceeded error.
    Any idea why?
    Maybe instagram has some minor like rate exceptions

    Limits are 350 likes per client, per hour. So if you use 2 clients, that's 700 per hour, and so on. Comments are around 65 per client and follows around 50. Not too sure on the last two because I only use it to like pictures.

    Also, if you stay well under, you can like at 1 sec. So having around 25 clients, and liking every second with a max of 200 likes per client works fine for me.

    When you say PER CLIENT, what exactly does that mean?
    I know statigram, extragram, etc are clients, but what would instafire be considered?

    I've been using just one instance of instafire and it's been working fine.
    I'm guessing instafire must use some sort of algorithm to switch between clients when liking photos?

    Or could I get more likes per hour if I had two instafires doing the same job? (I'd feel like that's a bit risky though)

    Its probably not using such 3rd party clients, and instead uses the instagram smartphone api.

    I'm using 3 to 3 secs delay between likes.
    It means 3600 : 3 abt 1200 likes in 1 hour.
    Make it with Instaget Pro :)

    There's that much "clients" out in the market? I know there's Gramfeed, Statigram, etc, but I haven't really found that much clients. However in your case, you're liking a total of 5000 photos in an hour for a single account, correct?


    I'm also curious, how many accounts is everyone making per IP?
