    wow 500k, so there is not only a ban wave is a continuous thing for them it seems... was he using agressive follow/unfollow/like/comment settings or any idea what caused it?

    He was using Followliker till 30 000 followers, then all manual. It's not because of link, it's not because of photo ( all the photos were taken by him / travel niche account). Dunno what's happening :X

    Could be possible that several people reported his account. Not likely but still a possibility.

    I had 2 accounts blocked yesterday! Both small ~2k but still annoying. I think they're more closely monitoring people automating their accounts - BE CAREFUL! I would consider slowing everything down or pausing your largest accounts for a week just in case....

    I for the first time got an actual account I cared about banned today morning. Nearly 22,000. Sorta cared. Decent engagement with about 1000+ likes per pic. I wasn't even going hard on FL but eh, 'tis life. Instagram isn't a game for people who aren't devoted to it. You have to have an army of accounts, put in lots of work to manage them all and make sure most aren't connected even by a single SO from your other accounts, and not having any morals helps. Unfollow every single person, block anyone who so much as posts one negative comment to ruin your profile, and ban your competition. Use your army of accounts to report others to get their followers. If you don't do it, others will do it for you.. and maybe against you even. Or buy out the competition.
