    As the title says, IG disabled me from following. The last time day disabled me from liking on a different account. It gave me a pop up that said ive been disabled from liking for this many hours. That popup had a "contact us" button and i used it, they enabled commenting instantly. But this time theres no popup. I dont know what to do other than wait. Its been almost a week. I googled it and some say they got disabled for a year. I cant handle being disabled for a year. I need to start making money on this account.

    I'll give you a valuable advice with three steps:

    1. IG support does not give a damn about this account
    2. Forget the account
    3. Create a new one

    They usually just suspend from following if you followed to many people per hour, 60 is the limit I think and it lets follow 60 more the other hour.

    Can you tell us how aggressive your settings were so we know not to do what you did?

    Not agressive at all. But I unfollowed about 500 people that day.

    Anyway, made a new account and gonna set it up when I get home. I think this time I'll stack it up with about 40-50 pics before start using FL.

    Were you doing follows too while unfollowing 500 on the same day? Maybe that's the reason.

    I thought FL can't do it at the same time. But if it can, then I might've. I'm really new to FL, been only using it for about 2 days.

    But on the positive note, I dug around some more and found a report form for IG on FB page. I filled it out, dumbed myself down and now I can follow people again. YAY! Already made a new account, but I guess it will be a backup.

    You can do both follow and unfollow on FL but you can switch tasks.

    Mind sharing the report form in case it happens to me? haha

    IMO, 500 is a bit too much.

    I never unfollow btw.. Have had multiple accounts banned for unfollowing 100-200 people a day several months ago.

    They enabled following in like 30 min after i sent the report and everything works like it should.
