    How do I calculate the followers/followings ratio? I want to turn on that filter in MP so it follows only people who follow alot of sh*t like for example Followers:200 Followings:2500, because there is a lot higher chance for them to follow back, I just dont know how to calculate the ratio..

    Or there's an equal chance for them to be bots, which either follow back or no.

    If you aim at getting the most possible followbacks, i think it's better, if you target followback hashtags.

    The ratio calculation is pretty easy, basic algebra. :)

    If you have 1 follower and follow only 1 person, the ratio is 1:1=1.
    For 1,000 followers and 1,000 followings the ratio is 1,000:1,000=1.
    If you have more followers than followings, your ratio is higher than 1:
    For 1,000 followers and 500 followings the ratio is 1,000:500=2. You have 2 followers for every single following.
    If you have less followers than followings, you ratio is less than 1:
    For 500 followers and 1,000 followings the ratio is 500:1,000=0.5. You have 0.5 followers for every single following or 1 follower for every 2 followings.

    also those accounts are usally bots or people who follow to many accounts and dont interact with your content, either way most of them are trash.

    How about if I set it to 0.7 or atleast 1 (meaning that it has to be that number or less), so it doest follow accs with like 16k followers and 20 followings? I currently have it set to 0.5 or less and looking at the followed accounts most aren't bots..
