    So i need to scrape each one of them. This would be very time consuming :(, but i guess i had no choice if i want to do manual follow/unfollow

    Once you've aged your account, it's faster just to follow then unrequest immediately if they're private. Manual method blows. No quick way to weed out private users or any of the helpful stuff bots do with follower counts, etc. But your account is safer.

    I don't think there's a way to avoid it if you're doing it manually. What I do is just unfollow them or cancel it right away. Never got a temp ban yet for doing that.

    can you read for a second what he is asking? he says how to "Avoid" following private users. Manually you can't tell which user is private and which is public unless you've followed them. Stop spamming threads with your stupid insulting remarks just to shove your signature down our throats.

    As far as I know PHONEGRAM on Android is the only app that lists the follower/following count and private state when clicking on a list of someones followers. Unfortunately you can only do 20 follows per hour which is sweet fuck all

    Followed 60-80 followers/hr and immediately cancelled my request on private users... Got a temp ban on the 2nd hour :(..
    Note: tested it for 2days

    Going to plan b
    Follow user of accounts with 10-15k followers for easy tracking, cancel all my private request upon reaching my follow limit.

    Is there an app. that can compare mutual followers of 2 instagram account?
