Instagram follow unfollow method works but is liking posts worth it?

    As the title said. I'm currently using massplanner and I'm having great success with the follow and unfollow tool but I'm unsure if liking posts of people is getting any follow backs. I thought it was then I realized it's because I've also followed the same people the tool is liking so the follows are giving me the follows not the likes.

    So do any of you also mass like posts and get people following back? Thanks

    Solely following & unfollowing may get you into trouble, stories about banned accounts are a hot topic...
    It's wise to make your activities appear very genuine (emulating real users).
    Adding likes into your strategy can help, but keep things low key to stay safe.

    I didn't think about that actually! I followed a thread on here (the road to 100,000 followers I think it was) and from all the comments it seems those kind of numbers seem to work ok without getting banned. I've tapered up to about 500 follows a day and in return I'm now getting about 120 follows back per day which is good but... after reading this link : http://igwiki.com/instagram-bot-mass-planner-settings/ this guys claiming to be performing much higher than that while utilizing the like tool. However he's also trying to sell Mass Planner as an affiliate so I'm trying to find out if hes bullshitting!

    Maybe he wants to diversify and scale up?

    Yea, be very careful with what people write online.
    Most are just bullshitting.
    And social media sites are pretty damn smart and getting smarter, so play it safe.

    Well if anyone can verify what he's saying is rubbish or not it would be great to hear! To save you reading he's saying he does around 700-800 likes a day and 570-600 follows a day and getting about 450-600 new follows back on his account every day (struggle to believe this). If it is right I guess I'm doing the likes wrong because im getting zero likes back after about 1000 over 2 days.

    120 follow backs out of 500 isn't horrible but you could certainly make it better.. Try adding 20+ sources and let it follow for a few days. Update your followed back amount in the results tab and then view the followback ratios for each source. remove any sources below 0.4-0.5 followback ratio and you should be much better off (if you haven't done all this already!)

    you may want to check see if your program needs some stuff cleared out. unless you have a like ban you should be gaining likes with that many. a ban will stop ur abilty to like, and a storage overload with the program u use will halt activity as well. i would stop likes totally for 2-5 days and start again. if that dosnt help then go to your settings and clear cach data and unneded saved info

    Sorry i think you mis-understood what I meant. My posts are getting around 10% engagement/likes for my total followers on my 3 month old account. I was averaging 1000 follows per month but now im my third month I've tapered up to aim for 4200 a month from up to 600 follows a day.

    The Likes I meant were making the app like posts with less than 9 likes from various sources but unfortunatly, I dont seem to get any follows back using that method after trying it on about 1000 likes. I'm not sure if I'm doing the method wrong or it's simply a bad method for attaining follows.

    So does anyone get many follows from liking photos/videos?

    By this do you mean you will hit the same users to increase the ratio of followbacks but don't rely on liking images solo for follows? P.s was that a Gary Vaynerchukquote? ;)

    Thanks for this advice!

    I didn't even know about this feature. I will start eliminating sources below .25 since I follow 500 people daily and would like to keep followers gained in the ranges of 100-125 per day. Some days I'd achieve this and then other days I would get .09 followers returned amd now I know how to weed out the bad targets. I have a long list of accounts I follow followers from and never thought about looking into the analytics, as I didn't know this feature was available, to weed out the bad seeds.

    From looking at these stats I'm now noticing that the accounts I followed who interacted with the accounts in my list follow faaaaaaaar less than the accounts I simply follow.

    I've never used FollowLiker but might give it a try now with MassPlanner being dead in a month or two. They just got a cease and desist letter and I got email warning us that use them.

    I'm a little bummed right now as I just added another 20 accounts bringing my total accounts up to 60.

    I'm going to just ride it out.
