On the Instagram app, I’ve been manually liking the posts of people who engage on competitors’ posts. I notice that I’ve been able to like a lot of posts in a short period of time. However, today I was only able to do like 40 before I started to get a refresh feed error when looking at potential new followers’ feeds. I think instead of giving me a like block, this error is used to prevent spammy behavior. Anyone have a similar experience?
Yes, many people. There are a few topics discussing the error and similar things, although not sure if they’re in LVL1. Ultimately, the problem is just that in my personal experience - rate limitations for doing do many things.
It’s just the way of the platform now, crippling user experiences to the point of no return.
I wonder if multiple sessions allow for continued actions for a period of time before they limit the account everywhere.
Assuming that’s the case but it looks like there’s a session log in for web and an app login, and both have different limitations that don’t always interfere with one another
The like action isn’t limited for me on either the app or on phone. But yeah, I think feed will not refresh is a roundabout way of blocking you from liking in the way that matters— growth. We all know IG wants to block any growth that doesn’t occur from ads
