In my opinion instagram doesn't track long term patterns that span months. Instead they set up triggers that catch spammy accounts. I have over 20+ accounts running now 24/7 for over a month. The important thing to know is the difference between an aged account and a new account. A new account that is a few days to a few weeks old is VERY sensitive. Settings must be as low as possible for a few weeks. Let it age naturally. My trick for these accounts is to scrape a normal looking chick's instagram photos. Change the name to some name like Brittany. Have it post 1-6 of the scraped photos a day. Caption the photos with some sweet quotes and use spintax for the hash tags. Have the account scrape a sexy female's followers like Jen Selter cause of that big booty attracts a lot of guys. Follow under 200 of these people every day, and increase by 25 slowly as it ages. I judge age typically by week. These guys will follow back cause your some cute chick named Brittany and they are curious who you are. Follow limit is always set to 1-3, 40-55 seconds. Unfollow these fools with around the same settings. For likes, start with 400-425 daily and increase by 25 when you feel it has aged. I do 44-55 seconds. For comments I do 1-1 per run. Now for the comments keep them as simple as possible! Here is the trick, comment with things like "hey" "hi" "" "hmmm" etc. Why? It creates curiosity in these males so they start following you and dming you right away to see what's up, who dis bae hitting up my bro pic? So what are the triggers that get fresh accounts banned? Photo sharing is very dangerous. Too many posts a day will get you suspended. Stay with 1-6 at first. Also don't use the same caption every photo. Have a seperate project running for posting pictures. Don't follow/unfollow too aggressive (duh), same with likes. Comments are also very dangerous. Do not @ your other accounts! Also don't be like one of those turds that you know who has his bot post the same crap on all of your posts that say generic spammy comments. "Sick pic, follow me" "Wow! we have the same interests check out my profile". Most users know that your a fake ig. People that use ig everyday can see the difference. Do not put a link in profile. Lastly, do not DM people. So now that you have survived 2 weeks as a chick, you should have around 500 ish followers. If you want you can wait till you hit 1,000, I've had no problem with 500. Now it is time for your transformation. You will now become a beautiful niche butterfly. Delete every single post. Change your profile picture, and profile. You will now need a new identity. Change your username to your niche. So now you have a niche relevant account with over 500 followers. Time to post your niche photos. Wait to start liking, following, commenting, etc until you profile fills up with some posts. Your followers will have no idea how the hell they are following you. You will lose some followers. That's okay, you still have a solid base of followers to build up from. Slowly increase your settings week by week. I have done this with most of my new accounts after many trail and errors of banned noob accounts . You will know your account is seen as aged enough and trusted when you get temporary bans in follows, likes, or comments. They ban your account if it is not. If you get on of these, lower your settings. P.s. Make sure you change your account from being a chick to a niche account. It can be tempting, but ewhoring is lame.
