    Hey guys, I did some research and all I could find is people say you can follow between 500-700 a day safely, but I then saw some people say that the daily limit is applied to both following AND unfollowing. So what can I set my software to do per day? Can I follow 700 people and unfollow 500 in a day(not at the same time)? I know that some people use a day to unfollow tons of people and dont follow anyone else that day, they just set their software to like/comment in their feed. What is moderately safe that you guys have done? I have a week old account at the moment that has 500 followers and following 900. Thanks

    Hmmm there's no ideal number of follow/unfollow per day. It always depends on your account. Usually for me, if it's just a new account, I do around 200-400 follow/unfollow per day (not on the same day). I always change my settings weekly though as much as possible to make it appear it's not being automated. Hope it helps.

    Yes, there is a limit on the number of people you can follow in total. According to Instagram, in order to reduce spam, they limit the number of people you can follow to 7500. Not that many of us will follow that many people, but keep this in mind if you?re an active follower.

    If you?re approaching that limit, it might be time to go through and determine if there are people worth unfollowing. There may be delinquent accounts or irrelevant accounts that you could stop following.

    It will also limit how many people you can follow within a period of time. If you follow too many people within an hour, or even a day, you will receive a message telling you the limit has been reached. As far as I?ve been able to confirm, It only allows you to follow and unfollow no more than 20 people per hour.

    But there is no limit on how many people can follow you :) BB

    I stick with 500-600 follow per day. When I hit 7500, then I wait 24hrs and start unfollowing 500-600 per day until 0. Don't think doing follow and unfollow on the same day is a smart choice.

    Your best bet is to find the limits that work for you and to not go by what you read regarding them. These limits can very from account to account. something that works for someone else may not work for you or could get you into trouble with your account. Also publicly posted limits can get patched if IG employees come across them.

    According to other BHW topics the best is follow and unfollow no more then 800 accounts per day. And I've heard about many cases when acounts were banned because of too big following - more 1000 per day.

    You have made 10 pointless posts to try to boost your postcount, combine this with your blantantly obvious selling username I can see your time here on BHW not being all that long.

    Even that my main account is more than 8+ months old I still follow 400-500 per day, this is safe for me and never got banned. I wait until I get 7500 followings and then I start unfollowing.

    That's good scheme. I try to do everything at once. Approximately follow 500 per day and unfollow 200. And give to other posts near 100 likes.
