    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone have noticed a change in Instagram sensitivity to Following, Unfollowing, Liking, Commenting tasks.

    For the past 2 days, I think Instagram have strangled one of my aged accounts from Following. I have not update any settings for 3 months now. And everything was working smoothly until 2 days ago. Now Instagram blocks FollowLiker when it tries to follow 1 user. Please see screenshot.

    I have gotten several errors in the Activity Log for the Following Task:
    • Unable to retrieve data for user:
    • Several errors received from Instagram. Temporarily stopping current task.
    • Last response code: 429 -> Sorry, too many requests. Please try again later. was received from instagram
    • Instagram says you are making too many request. Please increase the task delay and reduce the daily limit.


    I tried boosting the Following Task Delay, this allowed me to follow a few more users before being blocked by errors again.

    I can manually Follow/Unfollow without issue. Currently, closed FollowLiker to prevent a possible ban. I would like to see if anyone else experienced something similar. And if there are any solutions to this issue.

    Thanks and Cheers!

    Follow Liker is indeed having a lot of errors. I have following,unfollowing, and posting issues, and a handful of other people reporting problems as well. Hopefully an update soon.

    I am glad I am not the only one. I am curious to see if its Instagram's sensitivity changed.

    Originally, I was at 25~35s delay for Following, it blocks me after Following 1 users. Then I boosted it to 35~45s, it allowed me to follow a few more users before blocking me. Currently I am experimenting with 45~55s.

    Closed program and relaunched multiple times didn't solve the issue. I have not ran CCleaner or cleared caches/scraped items as others suggested.

    It's a big mess atm. I follow 5xx and unfollow 4xx every day and when I have a look at my total followingcount, it totally doesn't makes sense.

    Just signed up for MP, before FL is totally fucking up my accounts.

    Really wish MP wasn't so expensive. I run 7 accounts and it would cost me almost $90 a month to do that lol.

    I am still experiencing these issues after updating to Follow Liker 9.1.5. My current follow task delay is 70~80s.
    I still get this error. "Instagram says you are making too many request. Waiting for 3 minutes."

    Is anyone getting this error at all? If this carry on I will be forced to change my software.

    Which one do folks recommend? Instagress or Mass Planner?

    Thanks.

    MP is 10$ a month....to get the extra tools you have to pay one time only fees,after you get all the features you want MP is 10$ a month.

    There is an Instagram version which costs $17 per month. No need to buy additional modules.

    Since 9.1.15 I get a lot of blank project screens/stats and activity log as well.

    Well done!

    i got a bunch of errors and checked the API docs and didnt like the messages. 429 is too many requests. With a valid code, you should be able to exceed 5000 per hour, but if you are sandboxed you are limited to 500 (thats total for everything: calls to the API for information etc). To reduce your API calls, you could scrape your own users and reduce your likes.
