    Hi guys, I'm still fairly new to Instagram. Found this forum and I love reading it so far. I'm new so please bare with me, thank you.

    I'm thinking of purchasing instagram followers from the sellers here. I was wondering, would Instagram ban you if you happen to get followers too quickly in a certain time frame?

    Thanks in advance for answering!

    None of my clients I sold IG followers to reported lose of accounts yet.
    However my limit is 100k, so I cant tell for bigger amounts.
    And yes, some of the accounts were pretty fresh.

    IG can't ban accounts because you'd be able to buy followers for your competitors to get them banned.

    I've cross promoted multiple accounts to my new accounts on many occasions and received xx,xxxx of followers within a day.

    I didn't have any issues when I did this.

    be careful though, if instagram does another cull..then if you bought 100k followers and gain 50k..then you're account will go down to 50k and it will look bad...
    Plus, the engagement won't look good too----so maybe find a way to purchase likes

    Nope, otherwise celebrities who signed up to Instagram and told their followers on Twitter, Facebook etc to go follow them on their new Instagram account would be banned quickly.

    Never heard of it happening except for a guy who bought like 2 million fake followers, but that was kinda extreme so I wouldn't worry if i were you
