    hey...

    Pretty straight forward....
    Just was wondering what settings people here are using for Instagress when you follow and unfollow eat the same time? :)

    I just ran it for an hour for kicks.

    Basically it unfollows the accounts on the bottom of the pile and follows whoever you have specified in your settings.

    When follow cycle is set to 1 for both follow and unfollow it takes it in turns to do both actions.

    The only downside is it halves the amount you can do. So if you can follow 400 in a day on its own it looks like (from my hour test) that if you have BOTH follow/unfollow on it will do 200 of each.

    I guess you have to decide what would work best for your needs.

    What I like about "follow and unfollow at the same time" is I can pretty much do a "set it and forget it." Instead of following for a few days and then manually switching it to "unfollow," I can set it to do both and just leave it. I've had a couple of accounts running for months straight now without me having to even log in to Instagress.

    If you have it set to media then do you have usernames/hashtags set?

    My settings are identical but I have several accounts in my username section. I'm guessing you are scraping accounts which have lots of followers so instagress doesn't run out? maybe your settings are too strict and instagress can't find users?

    Since my last reply mine has done 96 of each...

    I can see the appeal. I guess your "following number" stays pretty much at the same number so you don't look too spammy?

    Nothing worse than seeing an account following 7500 people...

    I set it now to follow the follwers of usernames and unticked "unfollow who does not follow me"

    seems to work better now

    one license is only valid for one account... so might be pretty expensive for 50 accs..

    Don't think of it as a license its TIME,

    Yes you get discount for buying lots of time but that time gets used up as you use it obviously...

    Instagress is a powerful tool. But, once you start having multiple accounts, Instagress gets expensive. This is why many of us, use Follow Liker (FL). FL may not have all the tools that Instagress has, but FL's unlimited account option cuts your per account costs to less than a penny a month. FL also has some options that I wish that Instagress had, and vice-versa.

    Hopefully one of the above, or a new software designer will come up with a bot that has the best of all at an affordable price for us, multiple account users. Like, liking photos that have XX or XXX or X,XXX likes; Or not liking photos older than 3 days; or NOT Unfollowing users that have more than XXX,XXX followers, etc. Or what many of us really want, Follow a User and like X number of their latest photos, then continue with the next user. FL is lacking in this option, as it may only like 1 or 2 photos of a user, or sometimes not like any of their photos; but, that's a subject for another post.

    With that said, Instagress is great for single or up to tens of accounts, price-wise.

    Correct

    Followliker as @coloume above has said might be better. But it just depends how many accounts you have and what your needs are
