    Hey Guys,

    Now that its 2017, I'm getting into the IG game again and want to do it big. I stopped mid last year and am wondering what kind of settings people are using now a days. All my accounts are over 6 months old and have received Phone Verification's in the past.

    My key questions are:
    1. How many people do you follow per day / how many people do you unfollow per day (same on both day?)
    2. Do you follow and unfollow on the same day
    3. How do you format your following - follow large chunks (50 people with 60 second rest between each follow and then 2 hour break after the 50 have been followed) or follow all day (follow 1-2 people per 5 minutes and keep this pace up all day)

    Thanks for all the help!

    Up to 150 followings per day and up to 200 unfollowings per day. I don't follow and unfollow on the same day and I follow up to 20 accounts per hour

    I follow 800 a day with time intervals. I only follow 17 hours a day. 7 hours = Sleep mode, so it might look bit human. I do not unfollow on same day. 1200 unfollow a day! I'm doing this on 2 year old accounts

    Don't be so drastic if you're using new proxies or ips

    Follow Cycle:

    500-600 Likes
    350-400 Follows

    Unfollow Cycle:

    300-400 Likes
    500-600 Unfollow

    Cycles switch at 1000 and 4000 followers. 0 bans across 30 accounts. Rare phone verification's, maybe on one account every 3 week.

    Results obviously vary, but I gain 5k when all are on a follow cycle and 2k when all are on a unfollow cycle. Daily.

    So the theme is how much can you do? You can follow/unfollow and like as much or as little as your account can handle. No two accounts are the same even if on same niche and using the same photos/videos.

    So, about 80-120 follow per hour, 80 unfollow per hour, and it's a mixed bag for likes per hour, but general thought is about 120 per hour on top of the follow/unfollow.

    So you got 7-9 million followers in 2 months or did you mistakenly put that "k" after 9000?

    Taking a break from follow/unfollow, since I suspect that unfollowing decreases exposure and therefore engagement. I don't have any proof of that, but I suspect it has an impact on your exposure.
    Currently just liking between 1250-1500 pics of certain hashatags.

    It sounds like the settings across different peoples accounts are VAST. This makes me wonder - how can some people get away with stats such as follow / unfollow 1000 per day. Meanwhile other accounts can't even follow 300 people per day without getting banned. Is age of account the only factor that has an impact?

    My accounts are aged 8 months, unique private proxies, and PVA and I can't manage to follow more than 300 per day it seems.

    And what is your engagement only doing likes? Any new followers?

    How often do you post and what does your engagement rate usually look like?

    Once in the morning and once around noon. Its between 40% and 140%. Although the majority hover around 80%-100%. I use websta to gauge engagement. I get probably 2-4 posts a day on the discover page with posts getting between 800-3500 likes on them. All in all not great but not bad. For a fully automated system I would say its pretty good.

    I set my settings for 90 (followers of, followings of, likers of the latest post) every one hour and a half for accounts that are about 2-3 months ago from M to Saturday (7:30 am to 11:59pm). I do a big unfollowing on Sundays. Goal is to follow 1K a day for best results.

    No bans yet. Remember to warm up accounts for sure if they're new or else they'll get ban quick or get PVAs.

    Anyone knows where they can buy aged IG accounts older than 6 months?

    Only started doing it this week, so I can't really tell yet. Only thing I know is I get slightly less followers, engagement is pretty much the same. I think IG has an invisible flag on certain accounts, kind of a soft-ban for unfollowing.

    My engagement was really good a few months ago when I just started doing follow/unfollow after a long break, so I'm trying to find out if it helps my engagement if I stop the follow/unfollow method for a few months. If so, I will stop botting all together with my 50k+ accounts anyway, maybe except for likes.
