    Hey everyone.

    There's a lot of talk going around lately that Follow Liker has been having quite a few errors. The point of this case study is to be aggressive with following,unfollowing, and liking.

    A lot of people say they got banned within a day and others say they have been botting for months with aggressive settings. Let's see how long it takes me with aggressive settings.

    Some info:

    1. I will be using two different accounts, same niche.
    2. The two accounts are on a proxy that is shared with another IG account, making it three total on one proxy.
    3. Both accounts are PVA verified.
    4. Both accounts are three weeks old.
    5. The journey for both of them started with 0 following and 0 followers.

    Follow Liker settings for both accounts:

    1. Following 900-1000 people per day. The delay is set for 35-75 seconds, and follow 4 days in a row.
    2. Unfollowing 900-1000 people per day. The delay is set for 35-75 seconds, and unfollow 3 days in a row.
    3. I do not follow/unfollow the same day.
    4. I post 2-3 photos each day. The photos are all different, won't be a duplicate between the two accounts.
    5. 900-1000 likes per day. 30-55 seconds delay.

    I consider this to be aggressive settings. If I get banned, so be it. This is just a case study to show everyone so it wouldn't matter to me much.

    Day 1 3-4-16:

    Account 1 - 328 followers
    Account 2 - 414 followers.

    Any questions ask away!

    Thanks for doing this case study! I have been debating whether to go with FL or not (seeing all the negative results from people), so I look forward to the results.

    Nice! I like what you're doing! Will definitely answer a lot of questions out there.

    I've been using Follow Liker for 8 months now and I've never had any problems with my accounts except when I got temporarily banned for liking too much.

    Hi OP!

    I'm doing everything pretty much similar to you except:

    - I started the aggressive settings right after i created the account. I followed 900-1k immediately in the same day as the day of the account creation.
    - Followed for 3 days, unfollowed for 4 days with the same settings as yours.
    - 2 accounts per proxy (SSLPrivateProxy), PVA verified
    -Also started from 0 for both accounts.
    - My delays are slightly different from yours which are 50-70 or 60-90.
    - I don't do likes. (I think these raise some sort of flags with IG.)

    I did this on two tester accounts which served to test IG limits. Due to some error with my VPS, i actually double posted twice on both a/c and i was concerned that this would raise flags but it's been two weeks so far, i still run it with 900-1000 (follow & unfollow). My accounts are at 2.5k each now on week 3.

    I even logged on a few times with my home wifi, not using my proxy. To this day, my account is still going on. No bans, no blocks.

    I'm interested to see how your case study will pan out because your delays are more aggressive & you're doing likes.

    Will be keeping up with this thread!

    Exciting!

    I chose to do 3 accounts on one proxy because that seems to be the recommendation here on the forums. I'm trying to keep it as realistic as possible when it comes to the setup, besides the aggressive following. I personally like on all my accounts (10) because I feel it's a good way to get engagement.

    I wish you the best of luck on your project!

    Forgot to say that I run both accounts 24/7. Keeping it 100% on autopilot. That would be nice, wouldn't it?

    Those delays will get you banned.

    Hello,

    something I would like to know Twickburns: your niches are SFW or NSFW? Because it changes everything. Twitter is a big bitch when your accounts are porn/adult related and ban very, very easily. If you are SFW, Twitter is a lot less strict.

    Sure. Both accounts had 5 photos on them each. I posted the 5 photos all in one day on both, before I started with FL.
    I don't have any links, I don't do mentions, and no links in the bios.

    Slow gains, hopefully that'll change.

    I'm also looking to grow my social empire and got confused to buy whether FL or Mass Planner. Hope your journey will give some nice idea to me... May I know whether you bought these accounts or created manually?

    I hope this helps with your purchase. But keep in mind, these settings for FL are not recommended.
    I bought the accounts from 247 accounts. And its what I use for my main accounts on FL as well.

    wonder how long until you're banned. my next thought is when people are banned from web 2.0 sites if its because of competition tattle telling (as in google serp competitors) or from automatic bot interventions

    Hello,

    because of competitors. You can block/avoid bot interventions, but not "fucking-son-of-bitch" competitors.
