    I used to manually follow 200 people every day on Tumblr. Now they've changed how the notes are shown. I can't follow anyone without going through a lot of hassle. Are bots the only way to follow people on Tumblr now? It's far too time consuming to do it by hand now.

    Just use a bot. It's better. Spend your saved time more productively.

    Well, on that note... does anyone know of a good/decent bot for somebody who has -1608 €/$/£ on their bank account? (Yes, that IS negative 1608 units of currency)

    I'd look at getting a full-time job to handle all of the money nuiances/issues until you're making just as much online.

    If you still wish to manually follow, you can do the following if you got some programming skills:

    Get a list of people you want to follow. Use Regular expressions or Excel to parse the list of notes that come below posts.

    Get a list of people you're following.

    Take your list of people you want to follow and delete people that you're already following from that list.

    With your remaining list, create a script that generates an HTML file..

    For each item X in your list:
    <p><a href="http://www.tumblr.com/follow/X>X</a></p>
    End For

    Then take your HTML file and click on each item to bring up a dialog to follow that person.

    It sounds a bit convoluted but I spend about the same amount of time manually following people using this script as before the update.

    Of course you can still use a bot but you'll live in constant fear of being banned...

    I don't think Tumblr allows its users to follow 200 people in a day without any tool.
    It'll ban your account at the same day and you'll be suspended.

    I'm not sure what some of the above people are talking about. I follow manually 200 people a day almost daily. I've never been banned or warned or anything.

    example: /search/cats
    Choose a keyword you want. Search it. Change the search settings to "Most recent" and then change filter to photos.

    Manually click 200 people's follow button. It won't let you follow duplicates. It will show who you already follow and won't have a conflict.

    I also tend to like everyone's photo who I follow to try to make sure they trust me. I stay within my target demographic also.

    Can anyone recommend me a good Tumblr bot that is able to only follow those who reblog/like a post? iMacros has done everything I've ever needed for years now until this new update. Seems like it's finally time for me to bite the bullet and get a good bot. What's better for Tumblr, follow liker or tumbling jazz?

    Though I haven't been manually clicking, this is what I have been doing since the update... Thing is when you follow those who reblog/like a post, they are more likely to do the same with your own posts. Sure many of the people you follow from the most recents may follow you back, but I want to target those who are more likely to interact my posts.
