    Instagrams Following Limit

    Several threads in the community have discussed this following limit that instagram has put on.
    Ofcourse, anybody who have been following more than 7500 before the rule is set up, do not have to worry about anything.

    BUT...

    For those of us whom did not have that amount before the rule was set in place, well we're hear, stuck at 7500. And what can we do about it?

    According to Instagram.. absolutely nothing. No fake followers, no ratio, no time... NOTHING...

    Why would you want to follow more than 7.5k people? That's no longer a viable way to get followers....

    Unfortunately, it is though. For some of us. A very useful way to get followers. And in my opinion, the best.
    Especially in my niche.

    There must be other ways to. Create viral stuff, things people will share. Promote your IG page on twitter and other social networks, etc....

    Why don't you create more accounts instead for the same niche?
    Even if they would add 1 follow/day limit you could still use 1million accounts, right?
    Well it's just an example. Make your own way, good luck.

    So if you didn't have 7.5K followers prior to this rule, you can never go beyond that now?

    More accounts is the way to go, make 10 or so, get up to 7500, then simply grow them by themselves, or spam the crap out of them pointing to one, quality account.

    I don't go any where near the limit, because you will then be stuck having to unfollow them all and that throws up a red flag, if your going to follow and unfollow to gain followers then you should only follow around 200 and then wait for them to follow you back, let say tow or three days and then unfollow. Doing this to much can get your account flagged.

    Yep, your done if you didn't exceed 7500 following before the rule was in place.. best bet is to make other accounts.

    as much as i would rather manage one account.. im gonna have to go ahead and do it.

    Agree with you..

    I am now stuck unfollowing 4,000 users.
    I am doing it at a VERY slow pace.
    Around 50 people with 40 - 200 second delay.. and this could take me a few weeks to complete. Do you think this would still throw red flags?

    Anways, yes. next time. I will do it in batches of 200 and wait 14 days for a follow (i feel is best for me) and then go ahead and start unfollowing.

    Yaycks. I was already scared you are talking about followers, but those are followings, so it's not so important. If you mass following from lot of accs you can just buy another accounts and 7,500 for mass following isn't that small amount.
