    I am having this problem from past 4-5 days. Haven't used any bots on this account.
    Account is 3 year old and have 55k+ organic followers made from manual follow/unfollow. High engagement rate.

    I used to follow unfollow 100 people at a time and used to do it hourly 4-5 times a day. Now I am able to follow only 40 people at a time but can follow again after 15-20 mins. I checked other accounts (new ones) where I can follow 160 people at a time.

    Not following anyone now, as I fear it can lead to a temporary ban. Is anyone else facing this? How to overcome this?

    Sounds like IG's new hourly limits are taking hold.

    The same thing happened to me, I used to follow 50 at a time and 50 after 5 mins and I did this 4-5 times a day but now I can only follow 30-35 and can follow again after 10 -20 mins. But I'm still following though, do u think I should stop?

    Same for me but I'm not getting any block ( notification ) even after following 150 people but following counter doesn't move.

    with a 55 k account you should really stop following and start using dynamic hashtags instead , just rotate different hashtags for your picture to get maximum exposure.

    I started following back again. No blocks till now, I am following the same amount of people in a day just in 40's bunch now.
    Why not do both the things for maximum results.
    Where can I check it?

    same problem here, I can manually follow 40 accounts only and then following is not working, now its more time consuming...
