    Hey guys,

    so first off I'm new, and have been reading btw for a long time, but now willing to share some things, as i also could use some help. I've finally reached a problem i can't figure out.

    here's some value first for other new users and manual users.

    i reached my 13.9k followers manually by predominately follow/unfollow. theres several ways to do this, but i mostly waited for decent sized accounts in my niche to post, and then would scrape there followers as they came in real time. this was big for me for quite some time, but since the recent algorithm change and update, my page has felt very spammy and black listed even. and thats what i don't know how to fix. i used to gain anywhere from 100-300 followers daily and only follow about 700/800, now i can follow near the same amount and gain less than 50, and those followers will be very weird accounts. its been frustrating over the last couple of weeks, and i decided to share, because i know i can't be the first one running into this issue. not certain if its the update, or if ig just hates my account now. engagement hasn't change, it actually has grown in some cases. but still wanting to grow the account for obvious reasons. fashion niche. i have a second account that is photography niche, and its new and is growing with ease from 400 to 1.2k in just a couple weeks, but that account is very much secondary.

    helppppp if anyone can at least help me understand what is possibly going on i with that account that would be huge!! whats most frustrating is I'm not botting so putting all this thumb work in for nothing is second level frustrating.


    cheers guys, and thanks for being great!
