Right, I'm gonna try and bang this own before my lunch is ready (so in under 30 minutes). Everyone is in a state right now that Instagram is banning bots and automation efficiently. Most of you should have seen this coming but hey this is BHW... the quality of members has slipped significantly. INSTAGRAM IS DETECTING BOTS VIA BEHAVIOURAL FINGERPRINTING! That's the long and short of it. Legitimate humans don't spend all day following and unfollowing! they ponder they do things. They look at an Instagram post then click on the user and look through a large number of the other user's posts. They comment on their friend's posts (you look beautiful in this post babe, that was such a fun day!). Hell, my girlfriend likes every single post!!! when I asked her why apparently it's so that she knows which posts shes seen before (I've given up trying to figure out a woman's mind). Instagram is owned by Facebook which means they have creepy amounts of data on you. They know how an average 21-year-old, non-college educated American black woman signs up and interacts with the service. They know how this differs from a white 37-year-old college-educated American man hell they even know how this differs from a 21-year-old, college-educated American black woman does. If you want to defeat facebook and Instagram you need to behave and appear like a regular real user even before you sign up. Those facebook like buttons shares and whatever are designed to hoover up information facebook (and in turn Instagram) will and do follow you all over the web. They know what type of sites a 21-year-old American woman goes on. (Hint its not cricket scores in Pakistan) this is before you even sign up what IP addresses your using aswell. why is a 21-year-old American woman who says shes in Nevada creating an account from a mobile IP in Russia? but it gets more insidious than that. What do you do when your out and about? do you stop in coffee shops do you go for fast food and connect to wifi in say a Mc Donalds? Facebook and Instagram will already know what real users behaviour looks like. Real users have routines. I connected to 4 -8 different public wifis a day just when I'm out and about. When you're account is created on a mobile and then uses a residential IP from then onwards Facebook and Instagram knows you're unlikely to be real. Right lads my lunch is ready and I'm out of time. this subject is vast!
