    A few years ago before instagram cleaned up fake follower numbers from accounts i bought followers and likes with no problem. i havent done it since after the sweep, but i wanted to know is it still okay to do so? Or will you get banned for doing it? I just want my instagram page to look a little bit popular maybe like 50 likes per post(i have only about 12 posts) and 2-4k followers is what id be buying. just so people visting the page see some activity instead an absolutely dead page. Would i have any problems?

    I highly doubt that you will get banned. I got about 4.7k likes in my IG page right now and only 1.7k is real people... Don't stress over it everyone does it.

    this page 'gained' 78k followers in 10 days, and likes at 12k never increased - theatlantasocial. that's about the extreme i see.
    its been a month. it's still alive and kicking.

    however, i havent seen/experienced the benefit of buying.

    You don't get banned from adding likes or followers, if you do get banned, it's because you're doing something else wrong lol
