    Hi guys,

    Does anyone have safe limits for manual activity on Instagram? Trying to gain followers but I think I'm being overly cautious. I have found the following information:

    350 Likes per hour (Safe is 300)
    20 Comments per Day (unsure of this)
    20 follows/unfollows per hour

    This info was posted almost a year ago, so again, not sure its entirely relevant. Anyone else think it would be useful to have a stickied post (or something permanent) that can be updated as new information comes out?

    Cheers.

    I do 90-110 comments a day, don't use a @ or you WILL be banned within minutes.

    You can follow 500-600 a day and like 1k+ a day safe

    I also unfollow 1k a day when i reach the limit

    The limits you found on likes are too high

    So do you have a more accurate number, orrr?

    Really? that many follows? That is wayyyy more than I anticipated. What about on a fresh account. I have a 2 yr old account (business) that I've just taken over and a 1 day old account (personal).

    Your fingers will hurt quite fast. Better invest in a bot.

    I'm not looking for 10k over a few months. I'm looking for like 10k over a year.

    I'm gaining 200+/day steadily for 3 days currently with a 1,5 week old account following like 400-500/day. 10K can be done within 1,5 months easily I would say. I expect to grow faster when I get a couple thousand followers and can start doing SFS.

    Do you guys suggest me to do comments? Do comments give good results?

    You seem like more of an expert than me, but comments just seem to generate replies, not likes or follows.

    I am in no means an expert haha. I got locked out of my 2 accounts because I didn't PV them. This is my first "succesful" account.. 200/day and I barely have experience. If I can do it you should be able to do so as well! Good luck

    I am not sure about "safe limits"

    But i like ~1600 photos / day
    follow / unfollow ~1000/day

    And i have a really old account which can follow 5000+ / day
    it seems to not have a 30/60 follow limit, it is more like 250-300/hr limit
    BUT some of my recent accounts had a limit of 30/hr

    Once I made about 400 likes per day for may personal account but I have very aged account. For me the main problems with manual follow/like/comments are 1. time 2. it's rather difficult to follow any tactics. I guess that it's better to invest in bot with month licence (not live long licence). One month would be enough for you to reach as many followers as you want

    I remember not having the 60 limit on an aged account I bought awhile ago and although it was great following xxx-xxxx people a day, it got banned in 2 weeks I think.

    How long have you been following 5000 users per day?
