    Hi BHW,

    So stupid me completely forgot about the follow limit on IG and I just now realized that I'm quickly approaching it. That being said, what is the optimal to way to unfollow while following? Should I follow then unfollow every other day, or should I follow while unfollowing? If I follow while I unfollow, it's important not to unfollow people I recently followed, right?

    I think you shouldn't follow and unfollow at the same time...or even the same day. I usually do unfollows after like 2k follows or so..but you can do the 3 days follow - 1 day unfollow thing, it's completely up to you. Don't forget resting days though. What are your limits btw?

    I'm sitting at 700 with a couple accounts, and 450 with the rest. More testing needs to be done.

    What kind of settings are you running right now, and how old are your accounts?

    After you reach the follow limit let the account rest for a day, then:
    Daily unfollow people 10-30
    Unfollow limit 5-10
    Delay unfollow 50-70

    Increase the unfollowing daily and no more than a 40 increase.

    I have many accounts that follow/unfollow same day. Old accounts, no problem after 1 year.

    For those of you that stop, and unfollow only; or those of you that wait until 2K or 7.5K to start unfollowing, what is the average follow back that you get?

    I follow/unfollow on the same day and one after the other. Nothing has happened to me for over a year.

    I actually do this because the accounts are pretty new, and try to keep it on the safest side because I'm not looking for a churn n burn but rather a long-term thing. Around 32-35% followback.
