    So guys, how much of you follow and unfollowing at the same time? Or do you follow to 7500 and then unfollow?

    Im following to 7500 and then unfollow to zero. I was wondering how Instagram look at it when you lets say follow for 3-5 days then unfollow.

    If you do follow/unfollow at the same time, tell me does it work well or is it even okay for Instagram.

    I want to mix things up, but before I want to know your insights.

    Thanks BHW!

    i wouldn't unfollow to zero, set aside safety, what's the point in that? it looks very unnatural and fishy to your followers, when they check your account
    if you hit 7.5k, start to unfollow, yes, but i would only unfollow the similar amount, what i will follow on the same day, so the following count doesn't fluctuate much

    i think it doesn't even matter what social media site is that, can it be ig, twitter or something else, unfollowing to zero looks unnatural and can raise flags in itself

    Thanks for your input. I have been thinking the same thing..its obviously not natural. Better not listen others.

    So is it safe to follow maybe lets say 500 a day .. and also unfollow 500 day as long as you aren't following and unfollowing the same people on the same day?

    FOllow up to around 7k, then rest for 1-2 days.

    Then unfollow.

    I wouldn't recommend doing follow/unfollow at the same time as I read many posts where they say it's more likely that you will get temporarily blocked/banned this way ! :)

    Hi all... New around here and researching tons on FL and this was my question too... About following and unfollowing at the same time.

    im especially conservative in my setting... Daily max on both is about 240. Long delays. Unfollow delays are set 5-10 minutes (not seconds). Is it still unsafe to have follow and unfollow running together?

    i know that even when doing things manually I alternate between following and unfollowing on same day... Naturally.

    Are there any good unfollow tools other than FL? They all seem to suck and have no real sorting... I'm open to suggestions!

    Good to know. My main account is quite aged (years), but since it's my own that's why I want to be cautious.... It's only recently I'm trying to build more followers. Should I occasionally run follow/unfollow separately? I'd love more thoughts on this...
