I have just started an Instagram page two days ago. I started following accounts with similar genre to boost my page's popularity. To avoid suspicion of spam, I followed people slowly, maybe around 5-10 in every hour.
However, after a few hours of doing that, I still got an action block saying I followed accounts too rapidly, and am temporarily suspended to follow any more accounts.
I've seen however, some of my friends managed to follow 100 accounts a day, up to 5000 in a few months, which is way more than what I did, without getting a single action block.
Could anyone please kindly explain why was I blocked and my friends wasn't? Would it be possibly due to the device (Samsung Galaxy) I'm currently using, or some other factors?
