    Strange follow block.
    Not from my end but from followers end.

    I found out about this when a new follower left a comment saying that when they try to follow me the button turns green and back to white right away.

    So I created an New account and tried following my Main account and same thing happen as the follower said, I try to follow Main account the button turns green and back to white right away.

    The weird thing is even though this happens I still show up on there following tab but different (see image below)...I also notice I do not show up on activity or feeds.

    It is really strange block...But I am still gaining new followers daily.
    The account that this is happening I run FL.

    It is happening to me, I have a 89k account in the commedy/relatable niche but only once in a while only when i check my followers count except I do things manually on my phone with the instagram app.

    There's probably a limit in account activity, not just follows, that FL is using up and their system is limiting your calls for some reason.

    If you have Firebug on Firefox, you can see the AJAX requests and if there are error messages on why they're failing.

    One of my clients experienced this and he said he e-mailed Instagram regarding the situation and they fixed it for him, explaining what had happened. I'll try and get more details for you.

    Its very strange block indeed...I wonder what percentage of followers this is happening to and what causes this.

    That would be great. I am sure this is happening more to others but they have no idea...only way to find out is if a follower tells you or you make a fake account and follow yourself.

    Im going back to this, I'm doing/use it different in the instagram app and i think when you use the app you have to leave long delays like (3 to 5secs) or something like this in between switching places and now most of the people i follow can follow me and my counter jumps according to who is following me and the same thing goes for actions, (like, and follows or comments) and the same goes to the rest of the instagram apps i assume thats why it doesnt work the way it should work I'm trying to see if it works better this way or is the same.

    This had happened to me before, all I did was email Instagram Help center and they had the problem fixed within a day or so. I advise you to do the same.
