    Can someone check out the stats below .
    follower.PNG

    Those are the stats of an account in my niche ,kinda weird that they are losing 1k followers in just a day and then all of a sudden gain 12k. A few months back the account had just 350k followers then all of a sudden it sky rocketed to 1m and the dude has started monetizing his account.Or at least added an option for it in the bio.

    Edit: 90% of the likes (40-90 k likes) are from girls,not even teens ._. and the account is not in a girly niche.

    It can be real, it's funny how people on this forum have no idea of what is going on in the IG world lol. Please stop considering any spikes and losses in socialblade as fakes..

    There's a big probability that it is shout for shout seeing the stats, or giveaways. Both of them you gain a lot then bleed.

    They are fake. They are probably fluctuating as IG is constantly deleting the fake profiles and the guy is continuously buying then. Last year there was a purge in September where IG deleted a lot of fake accounts, this year sellers have managed to come up with methods of creating them, but they dont last. So definitely those are fake.

    Looks very fake. 1000+ people don't randomly unfollow an account on the same day. Any legit account would have gained at least 500 followers back in the same day so they weren't in the negative.

    Fake ass shit. Haha.
    I can smell fake followers from a block away.
    The abrupt fall is obviously because an SMM panel in involved.
    And the sudden rise of 12,000 follower is happening because your SMM panel from where you bought the fake follower is doing AUTO REFILL.
    Some SMM panels provide auto refill gaurentee wherein they refill the drops every now and then.

    Correct! That is why most of us keep telling people to stay away from buying fake followers.

    Giveaways? Yes a lot of people will follow the account just to enter and then unfollow if they don't win. But a s4s won't go like that.

    @Rockstard112 If the dude starts making money off them fake followers I'll fucking laugh my ass off.
    Most of the pics are liked by 10-13 year old girls . The account is not even in a niche for 10-13 year old girls ..

    How much would it cost for this guy to buy so many followers and likes? He gets somewhere between 50k-100k likes. Just to get an idea on how much he would have invested.

    Please dont tell me your going to provide a shoutout service.

    I would unfollow every single account that looks odd or not niche related to your niche.

    Go and have a go at your fake likes/follower provider.......(( not good , can bust you ))

    Ppl adding young ppl to your account dont look good

    Not unless your selling lollypops

    Haha!
    i know! I'd die laughing if he makes money off them bots! Hahahaha.
    The SMM rate for fake followers range between $1 per 1000 follower upto $5 per 1000 followers.
    Depends on the quality of the bots.
    If they are cheap with no DP and no post then $1.
    If they have DP, posts and are made to look HQ then a bit more.
    -
    I've seen scammers start IG accounts and spend $100 on it and bring it to 100,000 followers and then sell it off for $500. Haha.
    Some bullshit!
