    Hey, I'm a newbie, but I read in another post that someone got banned and the reasoning was "artificially collecting likes and followers"

    I've bought likes many times, and I never received any bans. But now I'm a little worried. So is this a new rule? Also, where is the safest place to buy likes from then? Also, couldn't you just buy your competitor a bunch of likes and followers and get them banned? Doesn't seem really fair.

    It depends on how old the account is, etc. I wouldn't buy them with a new account. Do the follow/unfollow game for a little while, make some posts, and then buy some likes. Trial and error, bruv.

    The account is at about 120k followers but only about 1,100 likes per post. But about 200 comments per post. All the followers are real. Like ratio is just really low for some reason. Which I can't understand, because all of the feedback is positive. Anyhow. So I've been buying likes to make up for it. Because it looks weird having that many followers without the likes to match. So I've just always purchased the likes, and it just seems normal looking on the account because I do have real followers who do comment. But now I'm worried that if I keep buying likes for each post, I am risking a ban?

    Bumping for other replies. Really concerned about this. Would like to hear if anyone else is buying likes without any issues. I only buy about 500 at a time. Totaling about maybe 1500 a week maybe 2000 if I post 4 pics in one week.

    This is depend from where you are getting likes,so that you can trace,and what type of likes you are buying.
    They dont look like SPAM.

    You don't really have to be worried considering you already have a good followers base so it should look natural having a range of 1000 to 5000 likes per post and even more. You can setup an Automatic likes system for your posts too. I have those if you need em'

    Buying Followers & Likes for instagram is against their TOS. Simple as that. So yeah, there is the chance of getting banned.
    However, it never happened to me. I even got 100k to a freshly registered account once and did not have any problems.
    I think as long as you dont carry it too far and stay away from low quality services (like addmefast and similar) you will be safe.

    Nah, only way to get banned is when you give access to those shady apps that do "likes for likes" and "follows for follows" because think about it like this, many people compete in niches.. So what would stop you from sending likes to your competitors, then BAN HAMMER for them. Only way is if you give account access to some kind of shady app/website for like/follow exchange.
