    hi guys, I'm trying to grow some profiles with the highest possible engagement rate, still achieving a good rate of growing. So I'd like to discuss with you about some parameter to select the profile to interact with (follow/like).

    Source

    Hashtags: very active profile but low followback rate (15-25%) since your notification blends in with the others the user is receiving.
    Big profile's follower: low activity profile on average, a lot not related, but highest followback rate (30-40%)
    Geotag(w or w/h keywords filter): lowest followback rate (10-15%), but active profiles and you can exclude all the arab and asian profile which (from my experience) have low engagement with english posts.

    Parameters

    Followed by: the highest it is, the lower is the followback ratio, but the activity increase and possibly the engagement too.
    Follows: directly related with the FBR, but leads to very low engagement if too high.
    Media published: not related with FBR, easy way to exclude a lot of ghost users.

    Let me know your considerations about it, and if you have suggestions on other parameters I should consider

    You should also consider factors like:
    - user should have a profile image
    - not follow users who have certain phrases in their bio (like follow, link in bio) - those are brands or bots
    - not follow users who follow more than 900-1000 pages. That also means they are probably bots. Average user does not follow that much.

    thanks guys for your feedback. I'm considering adding a new filter based on the age of last 3 posts (like at least 1 post in 48h & 3 post in 10days, like I said I want quite active followers)

    I had mixed luck with that, but was not filtering at all at that time, I'll give it another try

    -good hint
    -did that
    -not really, I see a lot of legit profiles who follow 2-3k, I guess the key is the ratio between following/follower (x < 4). Still, profiles like that may give you low engagement, so I'm considering taking them off the pool. Thanks

    sorry, I didn't get that
