    Hey guys, like most of us on here I've been following/unfollowing accounts to build my account to 22k Followers in 8 months. I am about to launch my Shopify Blog/E-commerce store and will be using a link purchased from Google Domains. Will I be able to continue botting? Will IG flag my account once the link is up? Thanks in advance BHW Family.

    Is it safe to kiss your partner for the first time? You won't know until you try.

    Weird. I had a link in my bio since I made the account. The name of the account is the same as the website. It is to a shopify blog/e-commerce shop. I ran a bot on the account until recently. Its about 2 years old now. Not sure if stuff has changed.

    P.S. I just posted 30 minutes ago and got 140 likes and 2 new follows, so I am not shadow banned.

    P.S.S. the site is a .com

    You can also try on a 'dummy' account if you're scared of losing your account, but I don't think you have anything to worry about.
