    Since Saturday, I realized that the Instagram has completely changed its limits to follow daily, and I believe that this is the end of the bots (not literally the end, but the end as we know it ... it may still be possible to use, but I think now only with 10 or 20% of the total we did before).

    In my opinion, IG logically never cared about this because it is always good that the network is pumped, but now that they have reached a gigantic number of users, it is probably time to end SMM services and automation / bot ...

    Do you think there's still a chance we can still use bots to follow 500, 600 people a day?

    Are you able to use it normally today, yesterday? Did you follow 500 profiles?

    Just because you cannot follow hundreds of people a day doesnt mean the automating is dead, neither will be dead. Bots must upgrade, Tactics must change, newbies must adapt :)

    While it's too much to say it's the end, something is going on and follow blocks are happening now and then.

    Depends on the age of the account as well, I'd say.

    I noticed that people who automate the posting of content (scraping it from websites that support that) run into problems. Instagram is a lot about content, and while reasonable botting keeps up their activity numbers, posting bad content damages the the app. So I'd say that's another point to look at if you ran into problems.

    Totally agree with you, the age of the account plays an important role, I just followed a little more than 600 yesterday with an old account that I barely to explore and do some manual search.

    I'm following 400-500 accounts daily and having no problems with blocks. Had a few PV'S but those were related to my reposting
