    Not sure if this is a personal thing like a soft ban or a new update that when you check the followers list in a given profile it doesnt show the most recent ones anymore but instead show always the same and old followers of that profile.

    Did this happen to anyone?

    I am still seeing a fresh update of the more recent followers, on a large profile's follower's list.

    Perhaps the follower list you're looking at is not gaining new followers very fast. Or it could be just you.

    Good luck.

    HOLLLYY!

    I have logged int with another account and everything looks normal, recent followers coming in frequently.

    With my account where I have been doing the follow unfollow I can't check the most recent ones anymore, instead they are showing me always the same old followers, have checked in like 5 pages with more than 1 million followers and all the same.
    Damn.

    Wow, scary.

    Either Instagram is being glitchy, or their computers are sophisticated enough to block you from stealing others followers methods.

    What do you think it is?

    Don't think it's a glitch, app is updated and when I log in other "virgin" account everything shows the normal way.

    I believe this is a new thing to limit accounts that are following to many new followers from others accounts.

    We got wait and see if more people will start to see the same problem.

    This is an update from 2 days ago. It's actually true. Instagram had yet another update for scraping users. At first, they patched the scraping by adding login requirements. Then they added limits for scraping. Now they're doing this. Not good for botters definitely.

    I wasnt even using a bot, but was adding manually like 500 users everyday.

    Any idea to work arround this?
