    On Instagram developers blog they say that starting from today the limits are these:

    Unsigned Calls (per OAuth token):
    • POST /media/media-id/likes: 30/hour
    • POST /media/media-id/comments: 15/hour
    • POST /users/user-id/relationships: 20/hour
    Signed Calls (per OAuth token):
    • POST /media/media-id/likes: 100/hour
    • POST /media/media-id/comments: 60/hour
    • POST /users/user-id/relationships: 60/hour

    But I think they also have daily limits for the user and not only token-based, do you know them? Sometimes I get stopped saying that i'm going to fast even if i'm respecting the hour limit.

    Lets say i'm using Icanosquare to mass comment.. Would it be a signed call or unasigned call?

    It depends if they are signing the requests with X-Insta-Forwarded-For, I think they are not doing that as maybe it's a standard web login with code auth.
    But this is not my question :)

    What is the definition of a "signed" and "unsigned" call?

    Since 4 or 5 days ago i'm not able to like any photos from any token, I think they blocked me to like, I still can follow
    this is the error i have
    {"meta":{"error_type":"APINotAllowedError","code":400,"error_message":"you cannot like this media"}}

    Do you know if they will unlock me or it's permanently? Maybe something in the new limits?

    You are temp banned from liking. It may last a few days to a week. Usually means you went too fast.

    They are signed calls, however they only are signed if you send the request to iconosquare, then ICONO sends it to Instagram.
