    Hi everyone,

    Don't know if it's happening to you too but lately I've been getting something like 50 followers a day when a few weeks ago I was making 200 to 250 followers a day.
    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 50 followers for 600 follows, 200 comments and 1500 likes.

    Is it happening to you ? What would you advise me to do ?

    Many Thanks.

    There is a thread posted recently about IG penalizing accs with high, constant volume of actions performed on a daily basis. This prevents your photos to make it to the popular page.

    Yeah but my photos have never been on the popular page yet, so I don't care.
    What I'm talking about is why my daily followers gain has been divided by 4 or 5.

    Yep,
    I also saw a drop on performance, 25%-30% less likes/pic and followers conversion.

    I'm really thinking either to change the bot strategy, so it will not run all days (and do only 50% of likes I use to do)... or do something more dramatic as stop using it.

    At least I got 45.000 followers and will be terrible to loose the account...

    Maybe you need to change up your method a bit. Try something new with it?

    Good idea Cat Lassie, but what are you talking about ?
    We can only perform 3 actions to get followers : follow, like and comment.
    These used to get tons of followers but right now it's almost pointless.

    Come on, stop posting without reading, I said that I changed settings a lot.
    I tested settings during more than 2 weeks with periods of rest, just in case.

    Infact it started a couple of days ago. Could it be something to do with the new ads?

    Are you still getting the same amount engagement on your pics though?

    I posted this in another thread, but I'll post it here as well. It seems that FL is not really following the limits we use in the software.

    I used 500-600 followers on one of my accounts and when it reached 392 I was getting an error -- the accoun reached the daily limits and when I checked the profile, it had only followed 300 people. So it's basically cutting it in half, maybe that could be the reason.
