    Hi,

    I've been using followliker too scrape users which has massively increased my account.

    However further Instagram API change has meant that followliker is now only able to scrape a certain amount of users per account, for example as a test I tried scraping a few million plus accounts but results meant only 1,700 users were scraped and not in the normal "newest" order.

    Anyone know of any solution around this?

    Tks

    Yep, that's a change few days ago. A fix: use new account fresh. Your old one has been flagged.

    Follow Liker doesn't use the public API and you can scrape millions of usernames, you may need to adjust your settings. I sent you a PM on how to adjust the settings.

    Hey, I have the same problem with followliker. I generated followers by liking scraped pictures of someone's follower. But since some weeks the followers don't increase very much. Usually I've got 20-40 followers per day by liking 1500 pictures.

    So what's up with my account? :eek:

    I've tested it with other accounts and the strategy works fine there.

    Could you explain more in depth how programs like followliker or more specifically instagress call the API. I'm curious how they work? Instagress is powerful= ]
