    We run 5 luxury IG pages and know a lot of marketers who run them as well for both business and personal reasons.

    We have used Mass Planner for over a year to both auto comment (with many spintax variations) and auto like the posts of the members of multiple DM groups we are also members of. In the past, this has worked great in the formula for higher daily follower growth, but over the last month or so, the growth rate has taken a drastic hit.

    This is not only something that we've experienced, but many other pages we know have as well.

    From our research, we thought that IG's reaction to the following might be to cause:
    1. Hashtag Invariance - The use of the same set(s) of hashtags over a given period of time.

    2. Direct DM Group Sharing - Directly sharing posts with DM groups by clicking the triangular share button.

    3. Generic Comments - Making generic spun comments (example: "Great post ," "I really like your page," "," etc.). These mainly come from bots (MP, Followliker, private bots, etc.) by using spintax code.
    Over the last week or so, we have played around with #1 and #2 above and have seen no change.

    #3, on the other hand, is much more difficult to test, unless you are willing to spend many hours a day typing 100's of original, non-generic comments.

    Even though we are still using auto-comments across our IG network, we know of a particular luxury page that manually comments on all the posts of their DM group members. This is the only page that I have seen [out of the pages that we follow] maintain close to their original level of follower growth.

    I know this is a pretty vague study of a very complicated, AI-based ranking algorithm, but if I had to guess what the main problem was, I would say that it's the auto generic commenting.

    Hashtag variety also helps, but I think that the auto-commenting is currently taking a much bigger bite out of follower growth.

    Your thoughts?

    May the GROWTH be with you!

    If I understand what you wrote, you've come to a conclusion that if account A provides comments specific to the post, account A will keep growing in followers?

    If that is the case, wouldn't account A keep gaining if they did not comment? Just a thought.

    If you purchased mp you can use it until the licence runs out. You can't buy it now for IG or fb.

    Last week, MassPlanner emailed all of its users and its affiliates. This is the content of the first email I received.

    Hi guys,

    We know how much you love MassPlanner and we appreciate your support all this time. Unfortunately, we have some sad news for you today. Due to a request from Instagram, we were forced to shut down our services. Your product will still work until your license expires, after which the Facebook and Instagram platforms will be removed.

    We will still offer our full support through these troubled times, we are here if you have any questions.

    Thank you for understanding,
    The MassPlanner team

    No they wouldn't. If account A stops commenting on posts of other members of the same DM groups account A is a member of, account A wouldn't get the boos from the likes and comments from the other members of the DM groups. As a result, account A's follower growth will take a big hit.

    The account that I said is growing is not using bots to comment. It's doing manual comments. The comments are not specific to the post. They are still pretty general. They're just not automated. The account is also mixing the sub-themes a bit, not just posting content for a specific luxury theme (for example, instead of just posting luxury cars, the account is posting luxury cars, homes, fashion, etc.). Consequently, the sets of hashtags they are using is a lot more diverse. This could also have something to do with it.

    And the million dollar answer is to code your own or to learn to code your own. It's literally that, folks.
