    Hi,

    I'm looking into whether it's easier to make my own bots or use tools like followliker.

    I'm wondering why would anyone pay for followliker? Is it designed for people that cannot program their own bots? Or is there something I'm missing and followliker could be really useful for me? Am I going to find it hard to replicate this functionality in phantom js for instance?

    I notice lots of people saying that followliker uses some kind of hidden or private api. Anyone heard of this? If it is using an API, surely that makes it really detectable?

    Finally, could it not be possible that followliker is owned by instragram (or allowed by them), in order to inflate instagram size/popularity? So therefore other bots wont work as well (if i create my own for instance). Maybe it's all allowed for now, but since they can detect everything in a few years they might make it all come crashing down for people?

    Making your own bots takes time + followliker is already there, is consistently updated and if you learn how to use it properly it's amazing.

    I've ran over 300 accounts on followliker at once and only had a few banned, and that was because I was pushing the limits of follows per day.

    Wouldn't have thought so at all.
