    I'm relatively new here, but I wanted to share.

    From time to time, I see people asking whether FollowLiker works. It does & the graphs below back that up.

    I've had an IG account for about 4 years - photography only, just for fun. I started taking it seriously about a month ago. When I started, I had less than 40 followers - just friends & family who had followed me by way of Facebook.

    I initially started trying to grow my account by hand - which, while working, proved to be incredibly time consuming & tedious.

    Reading these boards, I decided to take the plunge & buy FL about 2 weeks ago. I'm very targeted in the photos & users I scrape. I try to avoid any tags with more than 500,000 posts & target users with ~10K followers.

    The flat line below shows where I was at when I started a month ago. The gradual increase over 2 weeks was me growing by hand. The sharp increase after that was when I started using FL.

    As of this morning, I have ~2700 followers & I'm growing by about 200 a day. I average about 30 lost per day - but the majority of them are guys like me :) Lots of followers & few followings.

    What do you use to spin your comments? I have been trying to find a tool that spins comments

    I actually don't spin my comments. I'm too fearful that something would go wrong with them. I've had a few spun comments on my own photos & it would be embarrassing :)

    I went through all of the comments I'd received on my photos & picked out the most generic ones. I tweaked a few here & there to make sure they were unique, have about 15 emoji comments but mostly text. I have a list of about 90 comments so far. I add & remove a few here & there.

    Knock on wood, so far I haven't had any problems commenting. No bans or anything.

    Yeah! LOL.

    The tags I use to scrape photos are fairly targeted & generally have less than 500K posts - so there's very little spam & they are mostly on-topic. I wouldn't turn comments on if I were scraping stuff from #l4l, #f4f or anything with millions of posts. Probably too risky there.

    Oh no I was using tags related to my niche(tattoos), but some genius had an idea to put a Eiffel Tower(Paris attack) tramp stamp on his butt.

    I will never say that botting doesn't work, but you're limiting yourself with the bot. I was happy in the past as well with 200 a day, max achievable by botting.

    Especially in photography 200 per day is actually nothing. I grow my account manually, 1k-2k per day, manual labour. When I look back to my bottingperiod.....wasted a shitload of time and engagement. I follow less than 50 accounts btw....so no follow/unfollow game here.

    How in the world do you find the time to get 1k-2k a day manually? I was getting, at best, 50 - 60 / day liking & commenting on hundreds of photos. I just don't have time - I have a job & a family.
