    lol, 50% isn't bad.

    The follow/unfollow is a strategy (discussed here) to increase followers. They are just hoping for a follow back and they just unfollow later.

    And lest I mention... most of the time, they are using a bot to follow/unfollow like mass planner.

    Hmmmm I will try to think over it and change few things. But what could be possible reason. I have just 3 accounts and all 3 different Niche but same issue.

    I think belldragon7 doesn't quite get it.

    What fotoops said: You must be followed by a large amount of bot accounts and when you don't follow them back in a given time frame (few days), they unfollow you.

    Checks those accounts, if you find that a bigger portion of them are bots, the 50% unfollow rate isn't bad at all.
