I'm about to buy FL but I'm afraid it will soon shut down. Any good alternatives?

    I'd really hate to spend 100$ and then 2 weeks later IG shuts it down. I read about instadub but I heard it's not that 'noob-friendly'. Anything else?

    Both tools are great. Honestly we can not predict if Instagram will shut down Followliker or Instadub or even anything in the next few weeks. Sometimes you gotta take the risk and make the investment. I did the same with followlikers IG Version 2 weeks ago, because of Massplanner. For an alternative: There is GramDominator 2.5 from @indianbill007 - It just got released and i highly doubt that they will shut it down next : https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/g...rand-new-version-recoded-from-scratch.943787/

    Thanks, Gramdominator is handsdown the best massplanner alternative in the market now, its been coded completely from scratch based on feedback we got from customers over months of development. And yeah I have said it time and again, we are here to stay!

    If I were purchasing right now I would go with gram dominator from what I've looked up. FB support group, usually good feedback and quick responses from what I've seen.

    I use followliker right now because I paid for it a few months ago and have it set up and rolling along full steam ahead, but may be interested in gram dominator honestly. It seems like they are willing to put in the effort to keep improving it based on the feedback they receive but I don't know.

    You guys watching, I'd love to test it :)

    OP, i was also in two minds about whether to get FL after MP got shut down. Mulled over it for two weeks, then decided to email FL developers to get a straight answer. They responded within the day to let me know that they are still in business, have a backup plan, and plan to ensure that FL continues to work in future. So i went ahead and got a license last week. Happy so far. :)

    Massplanner got shut down because it was super user friendly and incredibly popular.
    Follow liker is complicated, it has a learning curve and a high start up price. I think it's safe for now :)

    Hire a VA to do the job. Instagram won't ban if you are using real devices and doing activities like a human. IG is more than capable to detect bot nowadays. I hired a VA and setup a phone farm just to work on IG. One IPs and there is no ban even when I manage more than 20 phones at a single point in time. When I follow more than 800 people I will face temp block from following but none of my post ever get ghosted. The smart phones can be purchased in bulk cheaply from China at cost $30 per set. If you compute the cost that you spend on proxies, the cost of such manual setup is very much the same.

    This sounds a very interesting idea.

    I know you have said the costs would be similar but this seems expensive compared to the ~£20/month for a bot/proxies.

    Are VA that cheap? Would you not need to pay them an hourly rate for a high number of hours per month? That sounds expensive!

    Well it depends upon how many accounts are you managing. The benefits in this case lies with cost saving on proxies. Different device ID mean less ban. Most bot out in the market only uses a few ranges of Unique device ID. But what matter most to me is the ban rate is very low. Somehow IG is able to recognise that these are human doing the liking/following. Not sure the technicality behind but IG is certainly able to track who is using bot.

    They said the same to me a couple of days ago, this 'backup plan', and that's all they said. Of course they won't say they aren't endangered because that would be some bad marketing. So as long as I don't know what this 'backup plan' really is, I'm not convinced.

    I already almost bought it a couple of days ago, but got distracted by the added VAT value after I entered my information, and thought that was really weird... Why would I have to pay my country's VAT is beyond me. Never had to do that online, especially not for a non-physical product. So that was already a turn-off. I got past it by using a US proxy, but still didn't buy it because it put me off too much. Pretty sure they keep the VAT money, and when something is that money-driven, I don't believe to be very trustworthy. Thus I don't really believe in that whole 'backup plan' stuff.
