I have the solution for your FOLLOW BLOCKS


#19

I wrote a detailed take on follows, randomness and bot-like activity above.

I’m not going to give out my own setup, but you can understand my take on this.

I don’t know if this will help you, but it’s not about API calls, it’s about not looking like a bot that’s just running based on predetermined settings.


#20

Noted really good method too.
Sure will try this in the future!

One question what age your accounts have to do 600 follows per day?
Create or buy?

Thank you :grin:


#21

Noted too, when account gets block by API what do you do? Continue with embedded or rest 1/2 days


#22

Have several sets of at least 5. Change one parameter per set and watch at least for 2 weeks how they perform. Analyse your results and optimize it from there.

No golden setting out there in a world that constantly changes…


#23

If you’re getting blocked you’re doing something you shouldn’t be doing, you need rest for a few days and also change settings.


#24

No money for that, but sure will do that in the future A/B testing :wink:


#25

No actions block until now, just wanted to know who people treat blocks, see the difference and test with me


#26

Hahaha no money no bunny… no glove no love…

Seriously if you don’t have enough money to invest in testing… are you sure it is the right game for you?


#27

Yupp xD No money no funny.
I see people buying 100 accounts with same experience like me wasting all of it. You don’t need to have money, you just need the right mindset.

I’m doing CPA with 5 accounts warming up accounts and then when I have the money sure will scale it and test things out. Some quickcash


#28

I prefer to follow for the whole day(with a break) and a larger than normal interval for the amount of of followers per min(or 5 mins). I also do scraping for a lot of the day.


#29

Lets put one example here because i think im missing something, we want fo follow 20 people/hour:

a) 2 Follow Actions, 10 + 10
b) 4 Follow Actions, 5 + 5 + 5 +5

Do you say that option b) is better? I say because most of people considerer option a) better (me also)

But maybe im wrong, if you can give me an explication about why b is better i ll be so much grateful :slight_smile:


#30

This sentence contradicts your method, no human would follow every 2-4 minutes… tbh I, like many others think it’s better to have more follows per operation and longer breaks per operation, since that looks way more humanlike. But happy if it works for you! Just keep in mind that IG might find your pattern sooner or later! :wink:


#31

This is also mostly irrelevant to the current follow block issue, as even the client themselves within the app cannot follow 1 person. Changing settings does nothing in that situation.


#32

You’re misunderstanding my take on this.
I was just saying that Madkap was saying that too many API calls in a short time was bad, but at the same time saying that he does exactly that, by running more follows on each operation.

I don’t know why anyone would say a is better than b, neither why b is better than a.
However more actions means more randomness happening, tho. If that flies over your head, don’t worry too much about it.

Your argument is that humans follow accounts in bulks of 10 to 20 every single time?
Don’t bring humanlike into the argument just to favor your take on it.
No human follows 500 people in a day. Every day.
It’s not that IG might find your pattern, they already did.


#33

thanks for amazing share.

so , what’s your follow setting?


#34

Well yeah, you’re probably right, but there are some people doing f/u manually and I am sure those don’t follow 3-8 accounts every couple of minutes during the whole day, but rather 30-60 every couple hours don’t you think?


#35

Your trick to look humanlike is to act like the 0.0001% who manually spams follows?
Not very humanlike. At that point you’re better following bot patterns, since there’s more of those and you blend in better.


#36

I’d suggest no new Jarvee users follow this advice. It’s also going to have no impact on the current follow blocks.

It would be preferable to minimise operations and total follows per hour and spread these out throughout the day, as @Fabian suggested. Also, start slowly and scale.


#37

This is great! Mimicking human behavior is the key to botting success.


#38

I haven’t read everything in depth, but yes, your settings are just incorrect and giving you blocks because of that.

The follow blocks that are others are experiencing in the past week/s are more due to IG throwing a spanner in the works and suddenly things which normally work are not and so we are trying to adapt or just wait it out.

That’s why this was said, I imagine.

It’s a good thread for helping to illustrate why to not do too many actions per hour and then how to fix that, but that is kind of 101 automation settings. It was a bit bold to label what you shared as being the solution to Follow Blocks.
