New Speed Settings

With our new Speed settings you now have more control over the specific speeds of your various Instagress Actions.

Please remember that every time you add an Instagram account to your Dashboard, you should be using the Slow setting for at least a few days and incrementally turning up the speed over time to ensure that your account is safe.

!Important information

Speed settings are approximate values and may not always reflect the exact amount of Actions per hour that your account will make. The Targeting and Filters you select can influence your Actions per hour, so it’s up to you to continually test new settings to see what works best for your accounts.

Improved Dashboard for Power Users

To our users who manage multiple Instagram accounts from one Instagress Dashboard: we heard your feedback and have now improved the Dashboard just for you.

Improved Dashboard loading time
Now, the Dashboard will be split into pages of 30 Instagram accounts each. This will greatly improve the loading time for Dashboards managing more than 30 accounts.
Convenient Instagram username search
Additionally, you can now search by Instagram username to quickly pull up a specific account. If you’re managing multiple accounts with similar usernames, you can also do a quick and easy keyword search to bring them all up.
Let us know how the new Dashboard works for you
We’d love to hear your feedback, so feel free to send us a chat message, or reply to the blog post below.

Recommended Settings for New Users

Whether you’re a first time Instagress user, or you’re adding a new Instagram account to your Instagress Dashboard, we strongly recommend using Likes only and Slow settings for the first few days. This will help to keep your account safe. You can gradually build up your speed and actions over time to ensure that your activity looks natural.

!Important information

Even if your Instagram account is an established older account, you are still new to Instagress, and thus should follow the recommended settings for new Instagress users.

Simply follow these easy 5 steps to set up your Instagress settings:


1. Turn on Likes at the top of your Activity page

Toggle the button next to Likes at the top of your Activity page so that Likes are on. We do not recommend turning on Comments, Follows, or Unfollows for the first few days your account is active on Instagress.

As you may have seen in our announcement banner, the Instagress team has been working on an important hardware upgrade to our system. This new upgrade will improve our services and performance for users.

Thank you to all of our users for bearing with us during the site maintenance.

We did experience 6 total hours when all Activity Time was forced to pause. Therefore, we will be crediting all active accounts during this time with 24 hours of free Time for the inconvenience.

Big Birthday Update is here!

It was 3 years ago when we started our first beta-version of Instagress. Since that time our service has grown to one of the most favorite growth hacking tools for Instagram. All these 3 years our service helped people from different parts of the world to grow their Instagram accounts and successfully achieve business goals. All this time we continued to improve our service based on your suggestions and great ideas, and today we're super excited to announce next new features which became available on Instagress:


New Targeting System

We proud to announce this most anticipated new feature: New Targeting System. By using this new settings category and all the settings available there, you can set up your individual targeting strategy and combine any of the available targeting sources to get better results in your automated campaign.

Also, it is finally possible to target Likers and Commenters on Instagress! You will find these new targeting sources in the new Targeting category in your settings.

We hope that this new improvement will let you achieve new heights, but let's have a look at more features and updates:

Activity Log

The Instagress team has been working very hard to release this new and highly anticipated feature. Many users have written in to explain the difficulty they’ve had in monitoring all the automated activity on their Instagram accounts since Instagram does not have a feature in their app to show the media you have interacted with except likes.

Now, the Activity Log allows you to better control your Instagress Activity by showing you all the actions that were made by Instagress on your account. The Activity Log shows all the interactions that have been made by your account, so that you can clearly see it’s not just numbers on your Activity page. These are real and targeted interactions made by our service.

Of course, the Activity Log also gives you deep insights into how your settings are working and what kinds of media you’re communicating with. You’ll be able to see what’s working and what’s not and then tweak your settings to optimize your account.

So, what are you waiting for?! Just navigate to Activity page of any running account and click on "Log" in the menu!

Also, don't forget to let us know what you think of this new feature in the comments below. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

Update: This feature is still in the development and now you have an access to its first beta version. We would like to add photos/users viewing capabilities, so you will be able to have a close look on liked/commented photos and followed/unfollowed users to get better understanding of your Activity and how your settings work.

Follow & Unfollow at the same time

With our new feature, Follow & Unfollow at the same time, your Activity can automatically switch between following and unfollowing.

How does it work?

Make sure you have enabled both the Follow and Unfollow actions in your Activity. It’s also very important to choose “Unfollow source: Instagress” for normal (not reverse) unfollow order and better results. Then find and adjust your Follow & Unfollow cycles settings in appropriate categories. You can set the number of users you’d like Instagress to follow for you before switching to unfollowing. Your Activity will continue to switch back and forth between Follow and Unfollow cycles infinitely or until your Follow/Unfollow auto-stop counter is hit.

Recommended cycles

We recommend you to set 500 for each cycle, what means that you will unfollow users after one day, but you can find your own cycle amounts that better suit your needs. For example, if you run your Activity on Normal speed (~20 Follow actions per hour) and you want to unfollow users after 3 days then you need to set your Follow cycle to 1440 (20 * 24 * 3).

What happens when I hit a limit?

Your Activity will automatically switch to the Unfollow cycle if your account hits an Instagram follow limit, which would prohibit you from following more users. Conversely, when there are no more users to unfollow, your Activity will automatically switch to the Follow cycle.

Share your feedback

We can’t wait to see how Follow & Unfollow cycles are working out for you. Please give us your feedback in the comments below.

New Locations Search

You asked and we listened! Our much-loved Locations feature has just undergone a major update to improve its core functionality.

We’ve completely rewritten our search algorithm so you can enjoy true searches by city, state, and country in addition to named locations like businesses or points of interest. And, our new click-and-search map will completely change your search experience.

Check out all the great new features in this update:

  • True search by city, state, and country (works best for U.S. locations);
  • Greatly improved search by location name: no more locations which cannot be found;
  • Improved focus on mostly grouped locations;
  • Click-and-search functionality—zoom in or out to narrow or broaden your search. You can even search for locations from the street level!

Bypass Spam Accounts With Advanced Filters

Instagress is a system that helps you to target real Instagram accounts that fit well with your niche. Unfortunately, Instagram has a lot of spam accounts that post inappropriate content. In order to ensure that your automated activity on Instagress does not interact with these spam accounts, we’ve been working hard to improve and reconfigure our internal system filters to fight against inappropriate content more strictly.

In addition to our internal filters, we’re excited to release a new cluster of Advanced Filters and a Keywords Blacklist so that you can have even better control over the types of accounts you interact with using Instagress. With Advanced Filters you can easily bypass inappropriate, offensive and irrelevant content that is listed under popular hashtags, as well as exclude spam accounts.

With our new Advanced Filters, Keywords Blacklist, and Internal Filters the chances are even smaller that unwanted content will sneak into your Instagress activity.

Here is the full list of new filters and features that are now available in your settings:

New feature: Super-targeting

Like and comment on the photos and videos of an Instagram account’s followers

As you know, Instagress already has a fantastic feature that allows you to follow the followers of Instagram accounts that you select. This is incredibly helpful for targeting very specific groups of users who follow an account that is similar to yours.

Now we have improved this feature so that you can not only follow but also like and comment on the media of someone’s followers. We call this breakthrough feature Super-targeting.

Super-targeting by Instagress will improve your Instagram marketing

In order to conduct effective Instagram marketing, it is vital that you target the right people. So how do you find these people? With our new Super-targeting feature you can now engage with the followers of accounts that are similar to yours.

When you know of an account that has a lot of followers who share the same interests as your account, you can now easily grab that list of followers and start following them, as well as liking and commenting on their photos and videos.

Two Amazing Years: Happy Birthday Instagress!

Exactly two years ago we started Instagress as a way for people to get more out of Instagram. We’re so proud to see how our service has helped people from all over the world to exceed their business goals and boost their engagement on Instagram.

We’re not going to stop and we have big plans to add more user-requested features to give you even more social media superpowers. As a big thank you to all of our users who continually support us, we’ll be announcing some exciting birthday promotions throughout this upcoming week, so stay tuned.

Since we launched, we’ve been very lucky to have a dedicated community of users who truly support our product growth. We’ve heard from thousands of users who have written in to give us suggestions and ideas on how to improve Instagress.

Thanks to all of your contributions, we’ve been able to launch a number of awesome new features in the past year:


  • Blacklists to ensure that you don't communicate with unwanted users

  • The Schedule for the ultimate control of your Activity

  • Geolocations for targeting based on location data

  • The Dashboard for easily managing multiple Instagram accounts with ease

  • An improved interface that makes it more useful to control your Settings on mobile devices

  • A feature to follow someone's followers (and very soon you’ll also be able to like and comment on their photos and videos)

  • Many updates that go unseen for users, but that improve our system and make it even more stable our increasing number of users

Again, we want to thank all of our amazing users who continually offer new ideas and suggestions on how to improve Instagress. We really listen to you and try our best to incorporate your ideas into our product.

Stay tuned this week and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to make sure that you don’t miss out on our birthday promotion and exciting new releases.

Check out our new homepage design

The team here at Instagress has been very busy for the past few weeks creating new features for our amazing user base such as the much-requested Blacklists feature and the new signup feature with Facebook and Google connect. Additionally, you may have noticed that our homepage has a brand new look!

Have you noticed our refreshed homepage look?

Our new design is all about accelerating your business with Instagress. You’ll notice this in the background image on the homepage, which gives a high-speed feeling. You’ll also see our new mockup images that detail how beautifully Instagress works on all devices.

We’re also highlighting the benefits of Instagress with our new tagline: Get social media superpowers. We hear from hundreds of users every month that Instagress has changed the way that they do business. Small business users and individual users tell us that they love to leave Instagress running while they’re sleeping so that they never miss out on new customers. Social media agencies tell us that using Instagress is equal to employing hundreds of social media managers, which saves them tens of thousands of dollars every month.

So, whether you’re using Instagress for your personal account to run while you’re asleep, or to manage hundreds of accounts, we believe that using Instagress truly is a modern-day superpower.

Stay tuned to see what new superpowered features our team releases in the coming months and as always, please let us know what you think of our new design in the comments below!

Blacklists

We’d like to thank our Instagress community for suggesting this amazing feature. Thank you for patiently waiting. We’re now thrilled to introduce the Blacklists feature, which can target hashtags and usernames!

With Blacklists Instagress checks all the tags under every photo or video. If one of your blacklisted hashtags is present, you will never interact with this media—even if one of your main tags is present. That’s right—the Blacklist feature overrides everything!

What is really special about the Blacklists feature is that it works in conjunction with the Follow source: media option. If you’ve selected Follow source: Media, then you also will not follow the user who has used your blacklisted hashtag.

Finally, Blacklists allows you to exclude specific usernames from your activity. This works great to exclude competitors, ex-boyfriends, or even your boss from your Instagress activity. That means you will never follow, unfollow, like, or comment on media from these users.

Some examples of how to use Blacklists:

Targeting bad tags
A user can add “bad tags” such as #drugs, #death, #brutality, etc. to Blacklists to ensure that their liking, commenting and following activity doesn’t target accounts that may reflect negatively on their brand.

Targeting usernames
Simply target the usernames that you want to exclude from your activity by entering the usernames manually. One great way to use this feature is to exclude all of your competitors’ accounts. As you know, it could look rather odd for you to comment on your competitors’ posts. Luckily, the Blacklists feature is now to the rescue!

Psst! We've added 1 bonus day to all users who were active during the last month. Try our new Blacklists feature and give us your feedback!

Dashboard Overview

The Dashboard is the place where you can quickly see the stats on all of your Instagram accounts. For users with multiple accounts, the Dashboard is crucial, as it allows you to switch between them in one easy place.

What you can do on the Dashboard:

1. Add multiple accounts
A social media manager’s dream! You can now add multiple accounts with ease straight from the Dashboard.

New "Add Tags" Interface

Today, we are pleased to announce a new interface for adding hashtags on the Activity page.

As you may already know, comment adding interface was redesigned earlier for an ability to add several comments at once or to copy a list of comments from a pre-saved text file. Now we have also enhanced the tag adding interface for better performance and usability.

From now on you can search hashtags by name and even see an amount of photos and videos added to them. Also, you can always use an another side of the interface to enter any of your desired custom tags or copy them from a pre-saved text file you may have.

Solved: Unable to perform selected action

We received several requests from our newly arrived users that they had "Unable to perform selected action" error and there was no activity on their accounts.

We want to inform that this problem was solved and all users who had the issue need to reconnect their usernames. To do that you need use appropriate "Reconnect" link and re-enter your password for each of your usernames you want to reconnect. You can find that link in the user's menu on the red row on the Activity page or click on the "More" button for desired username on the Dashboard page.

We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and all users who experienced this problem will have 3 bonus days added to their accounts.

Settings Categories

With every new upcoming update our service gains more and more new features and in a few days we are planning to add Black/White Lists. To provide a better navigation to our users in this variety of options we have added Categories of Settings.

From now on, all settings are applied to a group according to their main purposes: Main settings — a common set of settings for Like action and others; Comment/Follow/Unfollow — groups of settings according to appropriate actions; Tags/Locations/Usernames — different media sources for various actions; Auto-stop — settings for you to control when your activity needs to be stopped.

Each group can be expanded or collapsed if the settings from this group are unnecessary at the moment. A state of each category will be saved for each account in the way you will set them. Categories also will help to increase usability on mobile devices: now you can collapse long lists of tags and locations for a better orientation in activity settings.

We will be glad to hear your feedback!

Schedule

We all know that a Timer function in Auto-stop settings right now is the most popular way to control your activity.
But the main problem of this feature is that your activity will not continue going after it stopped automatically, and you will be forced to waste your time and switch it on by yourself. We think that this is not a very convenient way, that's why we present you the Schedule.

Schedule is a new function that will allow you to set up a perfect timing for your activity in your own unique way, at any day and hour you want, without restarting your activity manually. For example, you can automate your activity only during your weekdays or only during weekends. You can set up your activity in a spontaneous way for each day of the week and it will help you to act more unpredictable way.

To start using this great feature you simply need to press on the schedule icon near the "Start" button on your Activity page, then set up desired activity hours and your time zone. Please, note that choosing the right time zone is very important for a proper functioning of your Schedule. After starting your activity you could see the "Paused" status sometimes when it should not work, as indicated in the Schedule. This status means that your activity is waiting for a pre-set time to resume it's functioning. When your activity is paused, you will not waste your purchased time.

We hope that this new function will bring up your activity to a whole new level. And of course we are always open for your ideas and suggestions how to make the Schedule better. Please, feel free to ask all your questions in the comments of this post.

{Spintax|Spinning} Comments

We always recommend you to add more than 10 different neutral comments in your settings if you use Comment action. Seems that by reason of last changes on Instagram it's not enough anymore. Of course, we understand that it's not possible to think out and add hundreds comments by hand. But what if you will be able to add 1000+ different neutral comments just with one string?

Now it's become real. We've implemented support of Spintax format in the comments. Now you can use it in your comments on Instagress.

What is Spintax? You can read some bits of information on the Wikipedia: Article spinning. But we would like to add some more details.

Spintax is a writing format used to "spin" or re-write existing content. Its purpose is to create many unique articles from one, source article. Take a look at the next example: "{Nice|Cool} photo!". Each time when this phrase will be posted as a comment the "{Nice|Cool}" part will be "unspinned" and we will get two different comments: "Nice photo!" and "Cool photo!". Really cool and easy, right?

There are no limits on how many Spintax parts can be used in the comment. Even more, you can use Nested Spintax format:
"{This {photo|image}|Your {shot|picture}} looks {nice|cool|awesome}!" and get 12 absolutely different comments. Some of them:
"This photo looks cool!", "Your picture looks nice!".

The more various of phrases you will use in your Spintax comment the more different comments you will get. Just look on the next monstrous example:

"{|||Wow! |Hey! |Looks {nice|cool}! }{{I like|I love|Like|Love} {this|your}|{Very nice|Nice|Cool}} {photo|foto|picture|pic|image|img}{.|!|!!| :)| ;)| :D| <3}"

It will give you 2058 (!) unique variations of comments like these: "Wow! I like this photo :D", "Looks cool! Very nice pic!!", "Cool image!" etc.

Please, feel free to share your ideas and Spintax examples in the comments to this blog post!

P.S. If you're Spintax expert or you have a strong knowledge about it, please write an article with a cheat sheet for us. Best author will be rewarded of 90 days package.

Protected Time Transfer

Lately we've been getting many complaints about fraudulent Time transfers. We've started investigation and found that we have the weak point in our Time Transfer system: the same Instagram usernames could be linked to two or more dashboards. For example, if someone knows your password (maybe you gave it to your friend or to media agency, in the past), it can be possible that your time could be stolen by a third party right after purchasing.

To avoid these situations in the future, we've made the new feature — Protected Time Transfer. It will be enabled by default for either new or old Instagress accounts. When this feature is enabled in your account, it won't be possible to transfer your time without your permission.

If you manage multiple Instagress accounts in your company and you need to transfer time between usernames, just disable "Protected Time Transfer" feature in the account settings for all required dashboards.

New Login System

We've switched on the new login system to provide better services and continue to integrate more new features. You need to create your personal Instagress account and then join all your Instagram accounts. Don't worry, all your time, settings and other data related to your Instagram accounts will be in place.

With Instagress account you will be able to use our new Dashboard for easy managing multiple usernames, Quantity Discount, Time Transfer and more other new and upcoming features.

If you prefer to login using your Instagram username and password (this old way is deprecated and will be unavailable soon), please click on the "Sign in with Instagram" link bottom on the Sign up/Log in form.

Geolocations

Now it's possible to search media not only by tags, but also by locations. It's certainly will be one of the most useful and powerful features on Instagress.

To start use geo-targeting, you need to choose “Media source: Locations” and then add “Locations” by pressing on the “Add” button. In the popup window click on any point on the map and find all marks you’re interested in.

You can choose specific locations or the most popular places in your area (country, city) which we suggest for you based on Foursquare.

We welcome your feedback, good or bad, as well as any suggestions you may have.

Time Transfer

The long-awaited Time Transfer feature is finally here! Now you can transfer your Activity time from one username to another by yourself. You also can split your time between usernames and transfer only the desired amount.

To use this feature, you need to open the special Time Transfer dialog. To do so, please click on the "Transfer time" link under the "Buy time package" button on your Dashboard page, or you can also find the same link in the "More" dropdown menu for any of your usernames.

Quantity Discount

We turned on the Quantity Discount in our New Payment System. It gives you a special pricing when you want to buy the time packages in bulk. To benefit from a discount, you must have 5 or more usernames.

5 usernames: 5%
10 usernames: 10%
25 usernames: 15%
50 usernames: 20%
100 usernames: 25%
250 usernames: 30%

If you've already had a discount based on our previous agreement, please contact us via support form (choose "Discount" subject).

P.S. Due to many "time transfer" requests we can't do it manually anymore. We're going to finish an awaited Time Transfer ability tomorrow. Please, be patient. We will post in the blog when it will be available to use!

The New Payment System

Finally we've added the new payment system and it's now possible to make a credit card purchase with Stripe. Those of you who prefer PayPal, please don't worry, it will be back as soon as possible.

Thank you to everyone who offered help and words of support these days. We hope you enjoyed using Instagress for free, despite some of the problems we encountered.

We've also integrated the accumulation discounts. The prices will be reduced based on the quantity purchased over the all period of using Instagress. It means that even if you have only one account you will also can get a discount. The New Discount System will be turned on in the next 2-3 days. We'll tell you more about it in the special post.

The another great update from our side is that, now you can buy time packages for all your accounts in one place and at the same time. We hope you will enjoy it.

Please remember that discounts will be available only for those who have the Instagress account. To create it you need to logout and press "Create Account" button at the top of our site. That's easy, it will only take a few minutes!

Follow someone's followers

We've wanted to add this feature for a long time because we know so many of you have been waiting for it.

With this feature your actions on Instagram will be more targeted — now you can focus on just following the followers of the specific Instagram account. For example if you are a sport clothing brand try to target your "follows" to people that you know are interested in a similar account (followers of @nike, @adidas or @roxy). The likelihood of them following you back would be greater due to knowing their interests.

Hope your activity with Instagress will bring you even more fans and customers!

Happy Birthday Instagress

Our first beta version was launched publicly a year ago today. We could never have expected the level of interest we’ve had nor that the site would be so well received. We’d like to thank you all for your kind and supportive words during all this time. We decided to give you 3 free days as a present to celebrate with us our birthday.

We also want to introduce the New Dashboard for multiple accounts today. It's the more advanced system where you can manage all your Instagram accounts in one place from any devices. You need to create your personal Instagress account to start using it.

We hope you find it useful and we’d love to hear any feedback you might have. It's just a small part of our updates – new features coming soon!

More power for Instagress system

Over the last few weeks you may have noticed that Instagress worked not very quickly.

Our servers are constantly exposed to highload (due to the large number of Instagress users) and we try to optimize the code and scale our infrastructure as quickly as possible.

We've made some big improvements and added many new servers, so now you can see that our website and all our activity system are working faster and more stable.

Thank you for your interest in our project, we always try our hardest to build the best service for you!

Points instead of Time

It's almost been a year since we launched the first version of our project. During this time, we've made a lot of improvements, and have even more plans for the future development of Instagress.

Recently we began to notice some disadvantages of our current resource "Activity Time". Sometimes people have problems with certain actions or Instagram may not be available, but Activity Time is still spent during this period, giving no positive result, until activity is turned off automatically by our system after discovering problems.

After analyzing the shortcomings of Activity Time, we want to try a new system for performing and tracking actions — Activity Points.

This new payment system is better suited for all activities, especially multiple accounts. This eliminates the main disadvantage of Activity Time since points will only be used when the action is performed.

This new system will allow you to manage multiple Instagram accounts from one Instagress account, reducing your time and increasing your results.

We want to provide the most fair and reasonable conversion of existing Activity Time into the new Activity Points system, so we would love to hear your feedback!

Please don't hesitate to tell us what you think about the new Activity Points in the comments, or send us a message via the support form.

UPDATE: Thank you for all your feedback and interest! We will keep Time in our service for you!

Instagram stepping up fight against spammers

Some days ago all Instagram users got a message: "We’ve removed deactivated and spam accounts, your list of followers and people you follow may have changed”. They also improved their algorithm for determining the spam comments.

Please, make sure that you use more than 10 different comments (they must be different as much as possible). Otherwise Instagram will impose a restriction on your comment for some hours.

No more "like" tag

Instagram has deleted some tags and now it's not possible to use tag "like" and some others (you can check it through your phone — there are no photos with this tag).

Please, delete tags that marked orange color in your list and restart your activity. If you don't use such tags — do nothing.
