    When I used to do follow unfollow I was getting 100+ followers a day. Now engagement hasn't been as great

    Depends, alot of the time the follow/unfollow depend on niche. Might be following bots that autofollow back.. There is many variables.

    Yes, its still effective. A lot of people looks new followers and start to follow them too.
    I see this dependence in RL life. It really works!

    I use it and it has been the most effective strategy for me. I only post like a photo a week though so it gives me some way to get people to my page...

    I agree. The best goal are people within 15 and 25 yo. They are using instagram instant, they follow a lot of page.
    And- of course- all depends of content of your profile.

    It is still effective for some people. I still do the follow/unfollow method on some of my accounts. But a lot of people say joining engagement groups is better though, so you should also consider that.

    It's working for me. So far I followed 4K and got about 1300 followers so roughly 25%+ follow back ratio.

    And with those followers I'm getting between 50-100 likes per post.

    I am following between 200-300 per day as well.

    Definitely still works. Just gotta be within your niche/age group and ensure that you're consistent with it. I keep mine between 200-450 per day per account and switch it up every day so it's not robotic looking. Simple stuff :D.

    Do you guys notice that following users who have less than 50 following, gives a better result of a follow back? Or is it better to follow those that have 100+ followings?

    Hasn't been as great maybe because of the people you're following. Try to follow from other sources and compare follow back rates, you'll probably get to something. Wish you best!

    It is still effective but not what it used to be.

    Sorry, I believe I didn't make myself clear. It's not how many followers the account has, but how many people are following the account.

    Has anyone experienced a larger follow-back ration following/unfollowing accounts that have 50 or less people following them, or following/unfollowing accounts that have 50+ people following them?
