    I'm making good gains while following people (about 100-150 followers a day on a 6 week old account with 3000+ followers) but unfollowing the people who don't follow back takes a lot of time and completely slows down my growth. Is this just something that can't be avoided or do you guys have any methods so speed growth during this process. Also, I know Instagram has a following limit of 7500 people. How do you guys continue to grow when you reach that limit? Should I be unfollowing everyone before my following count gets too high? Will many people start to unfollow me back?

    Why don't you do comments and liking if following is the only thing you are doing now?

    I do liking but the returns are minimal. I'm skeptical about commenting with how strict instagram has been lately

    dont do comment if u dont know how to do it right....its VERY obvious on some people botting comments.

    Example, its a mountain on the picture, the guy botting have comments like - Love the sun! (its totally dark) , ahhh lovely car!

    i have seen SEVERAL of these fail comments, not sure what people thing, but yea... be careful and choose words that can be said to everything...

    you can easily get 200 to 300 followers per day on insta , no bots no bans ,just manually following people while your watching tv about 39% follow back just delete ghosts every 1000 its easy ?

    I follow and unfollow on the same days, nothing bad has happened for me so far. Also use FLC with the liking method (if using FL), it'll get you more followers.

    Do you mean comment on their posts, or reply to their comments on your posts?

    How long have you been following and unfollowing simultaneously? Never had any problems? I thought this was something you don't do. Also, what is FLC?

    It's a feature FL offers. See the guide on how to setup.

    F=Follow
    L=Like
    C=Comment

    I have one account over a year old and others which were new, I just put them all on the same settings and nothing bad has happened. The first account has been a couple months following/unfollowing simultaneously and the others about 1 month.

    maybe what you can do is unfollow 100 every 2 hours and then during the hour in between you can like people's pictures or comment on them or send them DM who knows maybe it might work or you can unfollow at the same time but unfollow real slow so the new visitors dont see it maybe it might do the trick who knows, to me I prefer to unfollow staright up and then when Im done I make the account to blow up back up again

    I don't think you can automate liking since they put in a new rule on their API for 'like' privileges via API.

    Use @main.

    Been using it for awhile now and I get good results using aged accounts.
