|Today, Instagram is among the top social media platforms in the world. |
However… have you ever read the Instagram terms and conditions?
If you want to have an Instagram account with tons of engagement and new followers, it is very important that you respect the rules set by Instagram.
Let’s look at the Instagram restrictions you need to know about:
Follow/ Unfollow Limit
Following and unfollowing are counted as the same actions, there is a daily limit of 200 a day. Your VA can follow/unfollow 10 accounts per hour without your account being suspended.
You are only allowed to like 300 posts an hour (about 7000 posts per day).
If you like a large number of posts on Instagram in a short period, your account will be blocked for 24 hours.
You are permitted to leave 59 comments in one hour or 500 comments within 24 hours.
If you leave several duplicate comments in a short period, Instagram will look at your account as a spammer and your account could be blocked.
Choosing the right hashtag can capture people’s attention, and you’ll get more Likes and Followers. But don’t overuse them. 10-20 max.
Direct Messages Limit
50 to 80 new conversations per day are in the safe zone when it comes to DM’s.
You are entitled to leave a caption with a maximum of 2200 characters.
Data shows that users spend more time on interesting and entertaining photos and videos instead of long text.
A strategically aligned social media strategy can come with huge rewards. However, it requires plenty of time, effort, and commitment – all of which you delegate by hiring a Social Media Virtual Assistant.
