    So whats up with Instagram? Im using a bot to gain followers ratio is 21.000 | 233 , my pictures barely get 60 to 100 likes if I`m lucky. It really depends on what picture I post cats work the best and pics of my self also.

    IF i use the bot I can get them to around 400 likes in 3 to 5 days. But thats not what I want.

    So... is Instagram dead? I`m thinking that it works like facebook or something to only show the picture to 20 % of my followers but I might be wrong.

    Fake followers I only got around 5 K or so. and other people with like 16K followers are getting 600 likes on a picture and they aint using any bots.

    Instagram is far from dead. Still making good
    money from it every day, even with almost every
    bot down and site changes.

    It sounds like you are using mass post tactics. Instagram isn't quite like Twitter where you can post a lot every day. For the best results, and most likes per picture don't post more than 3-4 photos a day.

    yeah. sorry about that MY PROFILE IS DEAD ! I`m not into money I never was. I just want to build like a social empire. To build my fan base for my music. I don`t promote links or anything like that I promote me.

    So check this out I checked my statigr.am and last month when I had 17k + followers I was getting 40 to 80 likes without bots, now with 21k+ followers I get the same amount it`s like its blocked on that amount never getting more no matter what kind of pic I post.

    I target people who use #justinbieber #me and #niallhoran so mostly girls. I also tried using a bunch of hashtags #likeme #like4like etc but was getting the same results no matter what. There is something really shady here.

    My profile is well established. A nice description. Easy to remember name and a link to my facebook page. I usually post 2-3 pictures one now, one 5 hours later and one 10 hours later, they are always different so people don`t get bored. After that I wait from 2 to 3 days to post pictures again.

    I also tried posting them 1 day interval same results same 40 to 80 or let`s say 90 sometimes. So you see? It`s for SURE a problem here since I post them at different times of the day. And I tried a lot of different things but none work. Any help here?

    Oooh and I must mention I NEVER follow anyone. Cuz it would be for nothing. I mean when I followed about 2k account and then unfollowed them I lost about 1.4K followers, so useless.

    Seriously? I mean I guess it really depends on what you post. Links never get likes since facebook doesn`t want their users to leave the website, the longer they stay the better. I post a lot of pics with me with cats with other people and get anywhere between 12 to 50 likes and I only got 1.800 fans.

    Instagram is not dead. If anything make sure you are getting relevant followers that's whats important.
