    Hi guys,

    so yesterday I was doing a bit of manually following people to get some followers, I don't even have 200 followings and it seems pretty weird that I can't follow people anymore

    Whenever I'm clicking on the "Follow" button, it becomes green (I'm actually following the person) then it becomes white again (I'm not following him)

    Someone knows where does it come from?

    TY

    Any more info? How old is the account? If it's a new account, take it easy... The way I see it, people these days are getting way too impatient and need instant gratification. When I start my new accounts, I do everything manually for about a week or even 2 weeks. I follow NO MORE than 35 people an hour (waaay under the limit), and I don't even do that every hour. I take more time posting quality content and putting effort into the overall look of the page. I like and comment on people's pictures manually and come up with personalized comments. I get only about 500 followers a week that way. Eventually I put the account on a bot. I start off much slower compared to other people, however, by taking my time, I have never ever been blocked, temp. blocked, or banned. If you have long-term goals for your accounts, then think long-term and take your time. Your account will raise more and more red flags with Instagram if you start off too fast. The more red flags you raise, the more chances of getting your account fucked in the future...

    @duceduc, I was following around 30 people every 15 minutes, is it that fast? :/

    @anthonynyc, The account is like 2 months old or something like that!
    I'm followin,g around 30persons/15minutes
    I don't post comments/likes etc
    Nice tips there! What's your FL settings if that's not too privacy? :)

    I will soon buy Followliker I guess!

    I think 30 follows per minute is way too fast! I'll never consider that even with my very old and large accounts. But hey, that's just me...
    After 1 or 2 weeks of manual work, i typically start my accounts off on a 3 day (free trial) on Instagress at "normal" speed (there are only 3 speeds to choose from). After that I'll put my accounts on FL. My setting won't be ver useful for you. I can assure you that they are way below what other people here will recommend as a minimum. I could probably get much better results and much faster but I like to stay on the safe side. That's how you get 100K+ accounts that actually last while others perish or get shitty engagement which hurts their monetization options... The key is persistence and consistency. Think of it like a business and build something to last. Don't take too many shortcuts because eventually they will catch up to you and bite you in the butt.

    Thanks for your answer anthony!

    So I think I'm gonna try like this now: 30 follows every 30 minutes!
    I didn't heard about Instagress, does it matter if I go directly on FollowLiker?
    Do you unfollow people every 500 follows?

    You're right, with some patience and determination you can reach your own goal!

    TY!

    still too fast for your account. start with half of what you just said and increase it slowly. don't risk it that early

    For what period of time you followed how many people? It's probably ban.

    I would a day or two for the temp ban to be lifted before you begin following again.

    This. Every time this has happened, I simply wait 24 hours and everything is fine again. It may take less then that, but I feel like my limits are back to normal only after the 24 have passed.

    Goodluck
