    Hey bhw members,
    I just made an instagram account. My niche is pet. As soon as I made an account, I started searching for similar accounts and started following ppl who liked their content.

    After about 30-40 mins. I got a popup saying I'm blocked from commenting. Even though I commented on just 5-6 pics. And my following count is close to 60.

    Did I do something wrong? Please let me know, I'm extremely new to all this.

    Thanks a lot :)

    Commenting is one of the most policed actions on Instagram and can quickly make IG go all Skynet on you.

    Without more information on everything you've done since opening the account, the only advice we can give is to simply wait a day or two before commenting.

    The only thing I did was liking content, following 68 ppl, and posting two pics. That's all I did. Got a notice of 23hrs.

    The max comments I made were 4-5. All relevant to the pics posted. Like, cute pic, love this one, with heart n stuff. No repetitive comments. :/

    Maybe because your account is new, you got banned for such small amount of comment. Usually the commenting limit is somewhat bigger.

    It's a way of instagram to prevent spam, just wait a day or two to avoid being blocked :)

    Alright, so I guess I was just unlucky. :(

    Ah, okay, I'll wait for a couple of days before commenting. But am I safe to upload my own content and follow ppl?
