    Hello guys!

    Two week ago I noticed every big account I was scraping followers weren't showing the most recent people that followed their account but instead was showing some mixed and random followers of that giving account.

    Was strange, there was another thread here in BHW where some people said it was a new update to prevent people from following/unfollowing.

    Some people were affected in some accounts while others were still showing most recent people that followed accounts they were scrapping.

    Well, I was hit but I can now see again followers ordered by most recent.

    Not sure if this was an update or a "soft ban" result of other accounts flaging my account for scrapping theirs.

    Not sure if I should keep following/unfolling risking getting a perma ban.

    Has this happen to you ?

    I have 2 accounts (49k and 1.8k both in good standing). I do not use bots. I manually follow/unfollow with the 49k account and last week I noticed the followers page of a niche account that I stalk is no longer sorted in reverse chronological order (newest to oldest). So when a user follows an account, they are not on top of the list. The 1.8k account (which I don't do any activities on) can see that same niche account's followers in reverse chronological order just fine.

    Kakizito...My question is how long did that last for? Did you have to do anything on your end to get it back to the way it was?

    Also, for those using bots... would MP2 or FL be able to adjust to these changes (if Instagram decided to permanently make the followers list random)?

    I am debating if these programs can scrape recent followers or did IG throw a wrench in that strategy. What are the alternative strategies you guys are using? Please advise.

    It lasted about 2 weeks. I strongly think this is some kinda of soft ban because I didn't see many people talking about this. If this were a big think like an update we would see alot more people complaining.

    FL rolled out an update to fix this about a week or so ago.
