    I'm not there yet, but within the next few weeks, I will have enough followers that I can't follow any more without dumping followers. Been using Instagress up to this point.

    What's the next step? Do I have to dump followers to move forward? Is there software that can do this intelligently (by engagement rates or something like that?)

    I have this issue currently. This is my experience.

    I went all the way up to 6050 followers then i hit a wall. My account is around 5 months old. I used FL to unfollow people. I went down to about 4000 over two weeks. I set it back up to follow again and now i hit a wall at around 5500. I think ok so i start the unfollow process. This is over a few days never following / unfollowing in the same day. Be smart and be safe.
    So after doing this dance for about a month now i am in the situation where i can only go to 2689 followers without getting the Error 400 i think it is in Follow liker. Which is the wall you hit when following too many people. Also manually it will follow then auto unfollow a second later. It just wont let me follow people now unless i unfollow.

    I havent used FL for the lat two days. Im leaving it alone for 3-4 days to see if this is a limited em-posed on my account. Hopefully it gets lifted.

    These walls are because you follow private users, also if u go from 6050 follows to 4000 in two weeks your setting are way to "safe". Bump them up a bit.

    you have followed private users without counting them. Shortly, you won't be able to follow at all...bad move

    Push the unfollow daily limit around 100 above your follow limit. That way your followers won't increase but will decrease albeit very slowly

    and now to your question :) the next is unfollowing people. you simply will not be able to keep on following every single person who is following you and what's the point? unfollow them, there will be some unhappy people who might write angry messages on your wall and a certain amount of people will delete you but in the long run, you will gain way more then you've lost. in terms of intelligence I have no idea, Followliker can do that, you can set your installers settings to unfollow as well or you can use a phone app but it will be a complete pain in the as* to unfollow that many people

    what tool did you use to follow?
    to prevent you just need to stop following private users, eventually some people will respond to your requests and the number will go down, enabling you to follow more people

    FollowerLiker.

    Over time im sure they will accept unless there dead accounts. Is there no way i can find them accounts and remove the request?
