On July 31st, 2018, Instagram will be deprecating the following APIs:
  • Follower List – ‘read the list of followers and followed-by users.’
  • Relationships – ‘follow and unfollow accounts on a user’s behalf.’
  • Commenting on Public Posts – ‘post and delete comments on a user’s behalf on public media.’

On December 11th, 2018, Instagram will be deprecating the following APIs:
  • Commenting – ‘post and delete comments on a user’s behalf on owned media.’
  • Public Content – ‘read any public profile info and media on a user’s behalf.’
  • Likes – ‘like and unlike media on a user’s behalf.’
  • Subscriptions – ‘receive notifications when media is posted.’
This update will kill off the last bastion of the fake influencer – automated liking. This will damage them in two ways. First, they won’t be able to mass like other people’s content in hopes of getting likes. Second, they won’t be able to post a picture and pay for likes. With both abilities dead, their 100K followers and 37 likes are going to be looking pretty bad for them.

Thoughts?

Afaik, GMT2 uses mobile emulator, jarvee has combination of mobile emulator+embedded browser+api so there shouldn't be a problem anyhow. Not sure about others as i am currently using these two only.

To know more on this let me tag the dev's of the top selling ig bots.

using GTM2, works smoothly for now *knock on wood*
 
thanks for the mention @proxified

those are all changes on the public api, anyone using that will definitely have problems, these are mostly the web/online platforms offering these features. as we don't use that it won't have any effect on us or our users ;) can't speak for the other software as I don't know how each works.
 
The change is only affecting the api, so is botting using browser emulation is safe then ?
 
Well, fake influencers have till December to find a way of tweaking that.
