    I have a couple of questions around massplanner and how it works for Instagram

    1) How does it connect to Instagram? Does it use the API? the reason why I ask is we all know the varying limits the API has. Yet when I used just my phone I followed 200 accounts in the space of under a couple of minutes by doing it manually.
    So I was thinking if massplanner does it through the API, maybe its better to do it through a webscraper and mimic a real user through the browser?

    2) Has anyone had any experience using webscraping for instagram and mimicking a browser to do follows/unfollows?

    3) How does the geolocation work?, do all users have geolocation data available or if I use this feature will I be missing out on some users?

    Thanks in advance!

    I've been using MassPlanner for quite a while now. I'm running 22 accounts on it, noone of which have been ever blocked/banned/temp-banned. For me personally, I wouldn't recommomend any other service.

    Ia, use massplaner about 2 month and everything ok. Good proxy the main thing as i think. When iam registered my 15 accounts i have only 2 sms verification and later i have changed 7 ips (when forgot to pay for proxys), but still everything ok and no sms verification,

    3) i think massplaner followed users that tagged their photo with geotags

    1) I'm 99% certain that it doesn't use the API. Why it's "immune" from the changes that happened in June. It actually connects like a browser.

    2) Look at IMACROS - search the forum for example scripts

    3) Again I'm 99% certain that geolocation only applies to the location an image is tagged at. I don't think you can find all of the users from New York City. Rather, you would find all of the users that tagged a photo in New York City.
