    Hi everyone,

    I have tried to change settings a lot, put FL on a different PC, changed my password but nothing is working and I get a crappy -in best cases- 50 followers for 600 follows, 200 comments and 1500 likes.
    Look at that screenshot:

    I was getting 250 followers/day a few weeks ago, what happened ?
    Is it happening to you ? What would you advise me to do ?

    Many Thanks.

    It depends on the niche and the users you are following, are they related to your niche in any way? You have to find a way to scrape real active and engaging fans, not from some profile which bought fake followers.

    My niche is one of the most active since it's fitness.
    And I've tried scraping users on popular tags or on popular accounts, follow back is crappy as ****.

    It must be some kind of bug or restriction because if I followed manually I'm pretty sure I would get more than 10 followers / 600 follows.

    TO add to this, someone commented on my IG account saying that he tried multiple times to follow me but it would not let him.

    Oh! So it's kind of a temporary following block ?
    Never heard of it but I guess that time will heal this...
    Only thing I can do is wait.

    Thank you for the input.

    Ok, I have waited 4 days to be sure I wasn't under radar anymore and so launched it this night with really high delays. I followed 300 ppl and likes 500 pics and still got only 10 follow back.
    Wtf is happening seriously ? This would give me 100-150 follow back a few weeks ago.
    I'm seriously tired of this, please help me.

    OP - did you try scraping the users from a different IG account? Or change the hashtag keywords? I don't know why but sometimes that does the trick for me.

    I tried to scrape differently by following the followers of someone in the same niche than me.
    Got 1 follower out of 300 followings and 300 likes.
    Can someone tell me WTF is going on? ...

    Can't really tell what is going on, because of lack of information. But if I were to guess, I'd say your problem is scraping the users.

    What informations are you lacking ? I'm telling you that no matter how I scrape user I won't get followed back while a few weeks ago I had 1 follow back out of 3 follows! And I want to know why that.

    Lack of information of basically everything you do.

    You say you scrape from user's following OR users who liked a photo. How am I supposed to know what are you doing? I can't read your mind.

    Second, lack of information of which users you are scraping from. It may be FAKE LIKES OR USERS you're following. Have you tried switching the accounts whom you scrape off?

    Sure I changed it like 5 times, the problem is that, out of nowhere, one day, it stopped working.

    Can't be due to my scraping, it's either my account or FL.

    But no one has a solution it seems.

    If FL is actually following what it says it followed in the log, double check a handful manually. If it did, then it's not FL's fault.

    Yes there is such thing is people following can get blocked, if you get to many followers to fast, it had happens to me and it actually will show up on the long stating your followers are blocked on FL.
