    Hi, I know that I cant use ig bot forever because at some point I will get trouble for using it. So what i want to ask is how many follower do you have when you stop botting and what is the safest time to stop botting? thank you :)

    id say 50k - 100k stop following. at that big you can start getting natural followers. just make sure content is good

    I'd say 20 - 50K depending on incoming new follower numbers. Some of my accounts grow a lot slower than others with lower followings. I don't run bots on the ones with good natural growth but I do run them on the ones that are not naturally growing for one reason or another.

    Sometimes even 10k would be enough. Everything depends on the account's niche and followers-gaining potential. There is no one exact answer.

    Hard to say. I stopped using bots when had got 30k followers. That is more then enough for my account.

    I think it is best to see what your engagement is like. If you have a good core group that is engaging with your content regularly, then you are good to stop botting. A wishy-washy metric for this would be total number of likes/comments/Click through in a 4 hour period.

    I'm not there yet... I should really pause every now and then to gauge organic growth.

    i am at 11.4k and getting 400 - 500 likes per pic, thinking about stop following and move to just like photos of active users on the niche.

    I have an account currently at 66K, that I still bot by following/unfollowing and liking photos. I'm getting roughly about 3,500 - 4,000 followers a week now and have high engagement on my posts, don't think i'll stop the follow/unfollow method until I hit 100K, and even then i'll continue to like images. You can bot for as long as you want, just as the page gets a higher following, then more attention is bought to it, so just tone down the botting methods a little and you'll be fine.

    I haven't gone that far, but if I go I will stop botting at probably 70-100K followers.
