    Hello, I hope this is not the wrong section for posting this.

    My problem: Basically, I started 2 weeks ago with an IG account, everything manually, without bots, following 50 persons per hour, even more time. Suddenly, Instagram doesn't allow me to follow more people, the botton becomes green for a while and then grey again.

    I do not use BOTS/FL, everything is legit and I get likes and comments from real people. And no, I don't have 7,5k following people yet, I have 6k following and 3,7k followers.

    I am banned since 2 days ago, I just want to know what can I do, If I should wait until my "ban" goes out (I don't know If it's temporaly or permanent) or I have to start growing up a new account.

    Also, I am gaining 100 followers per day without doing anything right now, I don't know If it is worth to still try to grow up this account through sharing Shout-Outs or buying it, or 3,7k it is too small amount and the best I can do is start again.

    Thank you very much.

    You probably hit the 7.5k limit. Although it shows 6k following, remaining are private users.

    I don't get any error message. I just press "follow" and It becomes green for 1 sec and after the botton turns back to grey.

    What do you mean by "leave your acc for a week"? Even not uploading picks?

    What version of IG client are you using? Tried logout/login again? What you described seems to be a connection error.

    Its clearly that you followed the private accounts and its counted.
    Even if you wait it won't matter, Just unfollow users and follow again.

    and you will be good to go.

    Cheers

    yep, can confirm. I'm having the exact same problem. seems as if instagram is pushing down the limits. I'm also stuck at the nearly same amount as you are. By no means am I following around 2,5k private users...

    I mean, it ain't that big of a deal cause instead of driving ur followings up to 7,5k and unfollowing back to 0, if you're stuck at 2,5k followings you would have to change tasks sooner, but the goal will nearly stay the same.

    It would suck if Instagram would be pushing down the limits every time, so you'll end up only being able to follow 1000 people -.-

    /edit: when using the official app the button turns green and then grey, if u use crowdfire a message appears that you're following the max. amount of people so OP is right it's really happening.

    It works. Thank you very much.

    Btw, what do you think is the maximum amount of people that I should follow per day?

    yeah sure it will work by unfollowing, but seems as if there's a new following limit on insta either way. New accounts don't seem to be able to go up to 7,5k anymore, at least that's what I'm experiencing.

    It varies go slow like follow 100-300/ day in first week
    then increase it to 500-800 slowly.

    And you will be okay.
    Make sure to keep a day delay when you are heading to unfollow users thats how I do.
    Cheers

    I am new on IG so I don't really know how it works. One thing is clear now: I have to unfollow people. I am wondering If I start unfolling 2k people per day, It would be a bit "strange". How should I do it? Unfollowing 100/hour and follow 50/hour?
