    I've been reading many posts on this forum about IG testing new algorithm and possibly trying to prevent the use (overuse) of people using a bot like MP or FL. I was just about to buy a bot, but now I'm having second thoughts. How effective will a bot really be for growing accounts moving forward?

    I mean if you are gonna be following 1500 people a day on a one year old account you are begging to have your IG account restricted and in most cases, banned.
    Bots are here to save time imitating HUMAN actions, not deliver you a 100k IG account in two days...

    Bots still work and deliver exceptional results, just adhere the natural limits.
    The game is changing and you need to adapt. 3 years ago you could send 5000 likes a day without any issues but now IG gets smarter but that doesn't mean it's not worth it.
    There are more people than ever. Just stay within human bounds with your bot and warm it up for several days then everything should be good to go.

    Just keep it within the limits others have posted, if you get a temp block just tone it down. Eh.

    Anything that saves time = more money to be made = worth it. The less people using bots means more open spots for me to make some cash.

    If you cannot even make money using manual then don't bother to use bot. I find that bot is only useful if you have an existing method that makes money manually. Bot is purely meant for scaling. Don't waste your precious money making bot developer rich.

    If you use your bot properly, it is totally worth it. It will save you a lot of time and effort. The new algorithm of Instagram limits your reach if you use bot too much or use it from a proxy. But, creating time breaks and using it from your own server will prevent you from getting the wrath of Instagram. As a bot developer, I think Instagram bots (at least the updated ones) are a great investment if you know your stuff.
