    So my instagram account is about a week old. I have a username that I would very much like to keep.
    So far I've done everything manually, but figured I want to spend my time doing more useful stuff, and have decided to purchase massplanner.
    I've heard that Instagram keeps pretty close tabs on new accounts.
    I've been pretty conservative with my inputs, but I feel like I'm being (way) too careful, which would hinder the potential.

    I have the following settings:
    Follow: max per hour: 10, max per day: 50
    Follow back: max per 30-45 minutes: 5
    Unfollow: after minimum of 5 days, max per 2-4 hours: 10 , max per day: 40
    Like: max per 30 minutes: 5, max per day: 50

    How much could I scale things up without raising any flags?
    Also, I currently have the tools running 24/7. Does it help to upscale, and set the operation time between 9-5 for example?

    Thanks :)

    when i post in FB groups i do it manually, even if the groups are around the world, i use google traduction to write something related to that group language, i have a second facebook account where people think i'm real, the thing i never used massplanner, i know it saves alot of time+effort, but dont be that kind who spams "click here to watch full video" or "this babu is left alone, you wont believe what happen next" , provide quality and people will click whenever they see you posting :)
    Good luck.

    edit: i wrote the above thinking you going into facebook, i have no experience with instagram, but when it comes to facebook i can help u for sure

    Thanks, but I'm not talking about posting :) AFAIK you can't autopost on Instagram using Massplanner. This is pure for the following/unfollowing/like part of Instagram. I think relying on posting quality content (which I do) alone, isn't sufficient for Instagram, or at the very least isn't optimal for growing.

    Using bots does save a lot of time, I'm also still doing everything manually and it sucks, you keep wasting your time on things a bot can also do.

    You can upper the limits for sure, just make sure you act as human as possible and also be sure to have some pictures uploaded on your profile and don't use any links etc. at the moment. It's really hard to give advice on settings, you'll have to figure out them yourself since every account kinda acts differently, you can have same settings on 2 accounts and one gets temporary bans, the other doesn't.

    As soon as I start botting I'll probably start with 500 followings/day and 600 likes/day.

    that's very weak settings you shouldn't get banned via that.
    possile reasons for bans is the blacklisted ip, or adult content
    don't follow/unfollow on the same day

    I just started using Mass Planner on my Instagram account that is about a week old too. Currently following 300, liking 500 per day and I think I am playing it on the safe side. I am only running MP for 18 hours a day though - not 24 (to account for 'sleep').

    You are very much within the safe limits from what I've seen.

    Would be very interested to see other peoples MP settings though...

    Thanks, I've changed my settings to be a bit more aggressive.
    Now doing 250 following a day and 400 likes.
