    So after seeing something on one of the threads, I gave it a shot (been about 4 days off) and haven't noticed much of anything. Have you guys tried this, and did you see your engagement go back up? How long did it take for you? I've been running FL nonstop for about 6 moths fyi

    be careful following something like that, it could have just been IG trying to spot bot accounts by activity. They might go and feed bogus information to the public and then they can see the accounts that followed the bogus information easily. But you never know. I'm a bit of a period type of person.

    I'm very interested in this as well. I'm quite certain there's some sort of "tagging" by Instagram going on so stopping to bot may remove the audience reach controls.

    That's an interesting point tompots. I mean if your accounts are somehow linked together then I can see this as a tactic but if your accounts are completely separated from each other how would they tell if an account that stops doing anything for a couple of days is botting?

    Went from gaining 500 followers per day to gaining 4000 per day within two weeks of stopping. Likes on pictures went from 15k average to 70k average. Best decision I've ever made, my account has grown and done so well ever since I stopped using FollowLiker, I'll never use it again.

    most of us would agree here that manual work is always better than botting.

    so depending on the time you're willing to put in, you'll surely be able to get even better engagement, depends on you.

    Not for me. Well, not yet. Every time I stop botting, I get less followers and engagement.

    The thing is I just literally stopped doing anything other than posting once a day. My engagement dropped off at first and then went crazy.

    Were you botting first? If so, how long did it take to see it increase?

    Would you like to provide more information on this? Like # of followers and how often you post etc etc.

    This sounds quite extreme, 70K likes would require 1,000,000+ followers usually.

    I have stopped botting on some accounts to see what would happen 2 months back, but I cannot confirm what is being stated in this topic to be honest. Engagement didn't drop or increase.
