edit: Is it safe to use instagram mentions? I add usually 50-500 and sometimes 1000 for some of my photos. I only have 600 followers, is it safe? I don't want to risk my account getting banned. I started 3 days ago and currently have 500 active followers. I use instagram mentions, but when I don't use them I average from 50-100 likes. Is it worth to invest in 3-5k fake followers and have autolikes for a month to get likes? And how many likes should I get if that's the case? I don't want fake followers, but in my experience so far. More followers = more people that will follow you. I also had 1 post blow up on the popular page and got to 1,300 likes and insane activity. How can I repeat this? My hashtags are pretty good I would say. Also, any tips on getting more active followers? I'm getting probably roughly 50 a day.
