    So I've spent a lot of time researching best IG practices on this forum. I know what IG posts as their developer limits and general consensus on this forum for the safe zone per day is something like: 1000 follows, 700 unfollows, 1000 likes, 200 comments. BUT growth is sooooo slow with those numbers. Am I being too greedy? I'm currently doing roughly:

    • 2250 likes
    • 1250 follows
    • 1500 unfollows (on different days than follow days)
    • 150 comments

    IG just cracked down hard a month ago with unfollows. I figure there'll be at least another two months before they do another algorithm crack down (usually they space things out). I figure I should push the limits hard now for the next two months before I pull back. Is this really naive/stupid of me to be doing this much? I'm doing close to this on my main too. Apologies in advance if this sounds like another, what's the limit thread...but really I'm trying to ask something else.

    How much you value your acc is a better question to ask yourself.

    Aggressive settings results in a higher chance of getting ban.
    Moderate settings results in slower gain, but accs would stand a better chance of staying alive.

    What do you constitute as "slow"? how many are you gaining with those settings?

    Ahh, damn. I guess this is a reality check. I'm a pig!!

    (I was secretly hoping there were other aggressive people out there that would validate/encourage my limits.)

    Things have slowed down incredibly since IG implemented their unfollow algorithm. For some reason, it impacted my FB rates. This has been the case for a few others, not sure why. I used to get ~30% fb rates. Now I get 10-15% FB rates. This is why I've gotten aggressive, to make up my lost ground. The higher numbers helped me get back to where I was. Previously I was at 200-300 followers a day.

    It's reassuring that you have a sustainable way of building accounts, I want to create/ grow around 20!

    I'm happy to help you with any advice that I can offer! I am a bit suprised you haven't built more than 5 considering it seems to be working so effeciently?

    I tried to add you on Skype my username is: scottselfmade
