    So I recently got tagged in someone's random post and I looked at the comments, and this person had tagged THOUSANDS of accounts if not millions. He got over 50k likes and just wanted to know how he did it? I saw someone had talked about this topic 2 years ago and they mentioned using something called "FL" but I'm new to this so I didn't know what it meant.

    2 Years ago this was one of the easiest methods to use. Now not so much. If you want to tag thousands of accounts if not millions then you would need a ton of accounts, a bunch of proxies and some luck.
    Some things you'll run into with this method nowadays is
    1. A ban of the commenting account
    2. Tags not landing on the users "Activity Feed" which means the tag was useless
    3. Comment being deleted
    It's still possible in this time and age but quite hard.

    If I may ask do you still have the link to the image you were tagged on?

    Actually I just remembered I sent it in a group chat and I found his @ but the account deleted all the post where he did this I guess so he wouldn't get in any trouble? But I also have a screen shot of the thousands of comments

    You could easily get banned with what you're trying to do. However, if you won't do this very often and in bulk, you can still get past the penalties.

    Instagram photos which have the maximum of 30 #tags receive, on average, about three times as many Likes than photos with only a few tags. Most of the averages are well-bounded, too, which indicate that the per-tag-Like-averages are well-representative of all Instagram photos.
