I like to support content creators of music, art, events, sewing, quilting, mental health, anti-racism, adhd, actually autistics, politics, restaurants, businesses, government officials etc. It’s not fair I can’t show my support or interest by not being able to follow anymore profiles now. Nor can I follow anyone back that follows me now.

I can’t follow back my legitimate followers, I want to support my audience as well. I am not spamming anyone. I am now unfollowing people, something I swore to not do, so that I can follow new people. I should be allowed to follow back anyone that follows me, regardless of the #.

I am signing because I reached my follow limit of 7500 and I have unfollowed the less than absolute best accounts and there are more beautiful people that I would like to follow. However I do not know how to rank the 7500 to know which new follows deserved to be followed more than old followers that I already follow. Would be interesting to see the algorithms used by Instagram to see how the application decides to show my account other accounts content and visa versa on accounts that follow me. I only have a few follows less than 1000 of which some look like fake accounts with few photos etc.

I would also like to see more Followers as after 7.500 you have the problem of trying to remove Followers as you can not follow others. And why not have a button that removes all in one go and you can start again. It seems a stupid rule not being able to as your basically stuck.

I follow a lot of accounts on Instagram—IRL friends, brands (both large and small) that I like and want to keep up with, celebrities, people I see on YouTube or various online spaces that’s I’d like to see more from. Today I realized I had maxed the number of accounts I could follow and that was disappointing. I’m sure I can clean up the list some, but I don’t follow random accounts. I choose specifically to follow each account I follow, so having a limit is frustrating because it means I have to say goodbye to some of the content I might still like to have in my feed in order to find/follow more new content.
