    Hey all, so I've been on this site for a bit. I had to restart my instagram account because of being hacked...which sucked. Anyways I've had my current account and have built it to 6.1k in a month. Really happy with it, and have good quality post and I am averaging about 280-320 likes per photo as well. The only thing I have been doing was following and unfollowing.

    Not sure if this was pushing it, but my settings were
    Follow 800 Unfollow 750

    Now I know instagram has beefed up their security as well, and I am wondering how much traffic would I build by adding comments and likes as well. Or is it too risky. My account growth has slowed a bit so trying to see what options i have. I know there are shoutouts as well.

    Or should I just continue what I am doing and just let it take it's time as well.


    I know there are people saying this and that, and I probably will get the same answer but trying to see if comments and likes make a huge difference as well.

    When you were doing that many follows and unfollows in a day did you ever run into the problem that Followliker said it followed users, but in reality it didn't? That's what keeps happening to me, whenever it starts unfollowing it only unfollows, and the following stops working.

    In regard to your question, if it's your main account I would probably keep it safe. If you want to test the limits you can make a fresh account and see how far you can push it before applying it to your main account.

    Well I would like follow for a day or two then unfollow for a day or two so I didn't run into that problem. Maybe it maxed out with your followers for the day? Could that be it?


    And thanks...do you use comments and likes for your settings?

    Yeah I'm doing the same thing you're doing now, following for a few days and then unfollowing for a few days.

    I use like, no comments yet. About 500 likes per day along with 600 follows per day and my accounts aren't banned, but they do get captcha's quite a bit.

    So I guess I am pushing it and should dial it down a bit. I was looking at Timbennetto Settings. Which are
    500 follows p/day
    1500-2k likes p/day
    100-150(max) comments per day
    300-400 unfollows per day

    Was thinking of trying that as well, see if I end up with anything different. And ya all of a sudden I was getting captcha a bit so I guess I should tone it down.

    I don't see why it would hurt to do likes and comments. I am the opposite of you. I don't do follow/unfollow because of the negative comments I get back after unfollowing them. I run about 900 likes and about 500 general comments a day. I also run another instance to like photos of my followers. Seems to be working fine. No captcha pop ups. I don't see my deathbycaptcha balance going down when checked via FL.

    Those letters, addition adding, image matching, etc sites ask you to do before proceeding to the next stage. Like when you sign up for hotmail or gmail accounts, before submitting it ask you to type in letters that appeared in a box.

    hahahaha a quick google search would have done it... thanks for the info...

    does anybody know if there is an option to set up the software where it will only scrape pictures under certain amount of likes? for example, I only want the software to like/comments pictures with under 50 likes

    I have emailed support about this, but figured I could ask

    Ya I hadn't got to the part of unfollowing followers yet...how much on average followers do you get. I may do that, because I would hate for the negative feedback as well.

    I might step it up a notch as well as the daily limits...

    current setting

    max comments 200 delay 4-5mins
    600 max likes 20-35 secs
    500 follows 20-35 secs

    I just bought the software today and testing on two accounts, one with 4.3k and another with only 700, I have two other accounts one with 45k and 40k... which I will sync to the software once I get down the numbers pretty good and how the software works

    I don't know about comments since I haven't used them yet, but likes are fine to have. I'd say put your # for likes to a good amount since others have a chance of clicking your name and visiting your page.

    How long are you guys running the software? I don't go heavy on the volume and I keep it only to about 7 hours per day.

    By stating that, do you mean captcha?

    Your strategy shouldn't be too bad.

    Just take some days as breaks and nothing should happen.
