    ok in my private account i had 6K and growing really good
    follow time then unfollow , likes and etc

    now i have reached 6100 already, i was on unfollowing routine and when i woke up
    i have 5300 followers

    now don't get me wrong i know that when u unfollow a lot unfollow u but never that much!
    i get already 1000 likes on post and lots of comments so its something weird! really weird

    so i switched back to Follow routine and i notice i don't get so much Follow its like IG made me Ghost or something

    now someone had this? or know maybe wtf is that problem?
    Thanks

    Omg thanks for your valuable input!

    OP, have you ever bought followers before?
    Did you build the account from scratch?
    Are you targeting by hashtag?

    chances are that they were fake followers and IG has done another sweep. Or you could be following bot users that are set to unfollow when you unfollow (this happens a lot when you scrape using hashtags)

    lmfao this JUST happened to me.

    I had 12.6k followers and went to bed, I woke up to only 12k followers.

    I have no idea how I lost 600 followers over night, it must be something on IG part.

    never bought fake and have this profile for couple of years but now growing it
    somone made a good point here maybe It's a combination of new IG sweep that took some bots that followed me automatically because I've followed them + the boys unfollowed me as well when I've unfollowed them...

    the weird part it never happened that drastically and not over night

    so I guess it's more like IG sweep of all the bots of the last months or so... Didn't notice following bots tough as I check sometimes...

    hope it won't happen again :/

    Okkkkk so I just woke up and now my account went from 12.1k to 13.1k

    I think IG was glitched or something so that caused it to show a follower drop but they might have fixed the issue now.

    Accounts stats are sometimes off on app or website. You can try checking through both on app and instagram website http:// to see what stats show.

    Sometimes mine is off by 100s but never seen it off by 1000s like in your case.

    I've heard this happening to other people as well, it's something like the google dance - i call it the Ig dance :) your followers will fluctuate up and down somethimes, nothing to worry too much about though most of the times they will be back to normal in a couple of days.

    I've heard this has happened a lot to many people having their accounts managed on FollowLiker, check out my sig if you want something more reliable.

    No offense, but this has nothing to do with the software running those accounts. It's something on IG's side, wether it's a glitch or not.
    You should be aware of that since you're running your own service. Can't blame you for pushing your service, but I'd say most users on BHW aren't that ignorant.

    This glitch usually happens when you check for your followers count I noticed so to avoid this what I do is I check it once ever 2 to 5 mins to see if it changes but I do things manually on my phone from the Instagram app through so I would say the best thing to do about this is to try to don't look at the numbers I think.

    Happened to one of my accounts yesterday, 84.4k to 84.1k!

    No fake followers, never used a bot on the account, it's really strange.
