    Hey, i have a new IG acc (2 Month) and it got ghost banned by following/unfollowing (combined) about 1800 people per day. I used Tor browser to check if my posts appear on the hashtags. They dont. So what can i do besides stopping F/U ? Is it worth it trying to temporarily disable my account? If i manage to get unbanned, whats a safe Follow/Unfollow amount per day? Like 400 Follow + 400 Unfollow?
    Thanks in advance

    Not gonna go into the reasoning behind why, but this is what I did:

    Cut down fllw/unfflw to 400/day each (like you mentioned).
    Stopped using hashtags.
    Started liking post in feed more often (you can set bot to do this) and did a bit of commenting as well.

    Worked for me.

    Did this bring back your normal engagement/growth? How long did it take?


    I think some details of my ban are usfeul here: by Tor browsering, my post that dont show up in recent posts, show up in the top posts of that hashtag (wtf). Other prople can see my likes/comments on their posts and even reply to mine. I just did a 2-way-verification and reported the problem. Also im going to stop F/U completely for a week or so + do what you said. I hope this helps.

    Were you not commenting/liking at all? Seems awefully strange to just F/UF without doing other activities.

    No i never liked/commented. All my actions were follow or unfollow. That might have contributed to the ban...

    All came back within 3-4 days. I guess it depends on how fucked up your account is; shouldn't take more than a week though.
    Don't think you have to cut out fllw/unfllw completely though - bringing down setting should be enough.

    But meh, what ever works for you.

    Did you stop using hashtags completely? Are you still not using hashtags? I pretty confused beacuse i just now got into the hashtags and growth methods and engagement groups but everything seems to change...

    1800 seems like a very high number to me, especially for an account that is only two months old. 400 should be safe.

    Yeah I dropped tags complete for those few days.
    I still use tags sometimes these days, but not on every post, and when I do it's mostly like 10 - I don't use the whole 30 hashtags.
    Yeah IG (or social media for that fact) constantly changes. You just have to be flexible and change with it.

    Naah I do that everytime but dont do that when your account is new After you have gained 1k followers then start follow/unfollow on the same day.
    Also no other actions can easily put you in botted accounts category you should try to avoid that and do other actions too.

    I guess the kind of numbers you U/F'd a day is what went bad.
