    I've been mining pretty aggressively during past months till 4:37 PM yesterday San Francisco when IG implemented new limits. Now not only liking, following and commenting is controlled, but everything. Get user info, get tag, view friendships, get user feed is now counted.

    Before I could easily do thousands of requests per minute. I've been mining several tasks simultaneously from one throw-away account and scraped multiple tags at once and infos of hundreds of user accounts in parallel.

    Now the limit is about 60 actions per minute per account. You don't get a ban, but you don't get the data also. The time has come: you need to parallel tasks. 1-account bots are now useless.

    Yep, that is true. I grow my account manually, that mean I go every account that liked a photo and follow them if they aren't private. After some follow (10-12) I can't see how many post/follow/followers they have and I don't see their bio for about 15-30 seconds.

    Damn, why yall gotta come with the bad news today? I just got my bots & vps.

    IG & their BS again. I kinda understand them limiting certain aspects to prevent hard-core spamming, but just data mining? Come on!
    With their billion dollar cloud servers, we cant be affecting those at all.

    True. They have powerful servers, it is just a way to significantly slow down bots.

    Or MAYBE, just MAYBE, something diabolical is going on.
    IG just made their jump from 300M to 400M, right? Maybe they want to quickly scale up to 500M-1B, which could easily happen by forcing us to make more bots to run in parallels. Maybe this is why they are going to make sign-ups from their official webpage possible too, which we know there will be new IG Webpage Signup bots tearing that sh*t up.

    And if you dont know, IG has a beta app that is allowing multiple accts as well, switching & signing up.
    Im guessing its probably going to be rolled out in their next major update.

    This "just might" be their motives to slowing us down, forcing us to make more accts, to quickly get those FB user numbers
