    This concerns twitter & instagram mostly. And by using automation software such as massplanner.

    What follow % have you guys been succesfull with in instagram / twitter? That is - for a fresh/aged account how many people do you usually follow each day? And when do you higher the number of follows?

    The most important factor I try to stick to is looking natural. I have a friend who has a big IG account, and he follows around 1000-1200 people a day, by hand. He posts twice a day and unfollows around 500 per day.

    I am now running 30 accounts on FL and I haven't had a single account banned. I have an excel sheet that I follow (Below) and it shows the amount you need to follow/unfollow a day. Basically FL is set to do a task every 50-70 mins, because I think that looks way more natural than every 3-5 mins.

    Basically, I warm the accounts up and then just try to test to see max settings. Here is a small portion of the excel sheet showing the setting I use for FL:

    (The settings are maxed at 600-700 follows/unfollows, but I think you can make this higher, around 1000-1300; I have my FL running from 7.15AM to 11.15PM)
    Good Luck!

    These are some extra setting I incorporate; following users who posted 14 days ago, Users < 2000 followings, ignore private users... My strategy is far from best, so I recommend you trying your own way and updating with results! good luck!

    If you have an aged Twitter account it's not a problem to add lot's of followers and avoid to be banned. Mine was 8 years old and had no issues!

    what about profiling the accounts? do you use accounts without content or do you post images too?

    I post 1-3 images a day, every 3-4 hours. I just try to keep it as random as possible in all aspects of my accounts. As you can see from the table above, I calculated all the progress using Averages, meaning that the accounts will follow a similar growth, but will still be kinda random, which I think makes it look very natural.

    Are these accounts new or aged?

    I use fresh PVA accounts for now. I edit the Usernames, bios, change passwords on my home computer then just import them into FL with the proxies from proxymillion.
