Social Network Hourly/Daily Rate Limits

19 replies
Hi. I am starting a thread to not only help me, but to help others as well.

My hope and goal of this thread is to have myself ask my own questions about rate limits on my own social networks I use, and then also have others ask. And have the questions answered.

There is a LOT of bots out for social marketing, but how in the heck can you make the best use of them without really knowing and understanding the rate limits of the network itself so you can NOT have your account banned and mess it up.

Too many people use a bot and set it up to do things "too much" and then wake up and their account is banned or something else.

So I also want to avoid the issue and want to know, and I'm sure a lot of people want to know what the limits are for social networks.

I search all around google, this forum, and can't find any positive answer, and if I happen to find anything, I get conflicting results which make me not want to use the bots I have invested a lot of money in because I don't know the rate limits and don't want to risk something bad happening to my accounts.

So lets get to the questions. I'll say the social network name, and then ask the questions.

(I'll update the answers as I get them)

Instagram

Follows per hour: 200
Unfollows per hour: 200
Comments per hour: 60
Likes per hour: 500
Photo posts per hour: ??


Facebook

(See below block of text)

Likes per hour/day:
Comments per hour/day:
Messages per hour/day:
Friend requests per hour/day:
Shares per hour/day:
Posts per hour/day:

(Needs Confirmation: As I understand, all of these fit under a 600 "calls" per 600 seconds (10 minutes) so that means you can do for example 100 comments, 200 likes, 200 posts, and 100 shares (total 600) (or any other tasks totaling in 600) in 10 minutes, but also be aware a call can be any request like viewing someones facebook timeline or searching for a user or any task as I understand it) (also be mindful that facebook limits you even further with spammy-ness if it sees you posting the same comment with a link for example or sending friend request to people who you don't know (when they report you or say they don't know you and it sends a red flag to Facebook))

Twitter

Follows per day: 1,000
Unfollows per day: Unknown
Tweets per day: 1,000
Retweets per day: 1,000 (included with Tweets, e.g. if you do 800 tweets in 1 day, you only have 200 retweets to do that day
Direct Messages per day: 250
Replies per day: 1,000 (included with Tweets, e.g. if you do 800 tweets in 1 day, you only have 200 replies to do that day

Pinterest

Follows per day: 300
Unfollows per hour/day: ??
Likes per hour/day: ??
Pins per hour/day: ??
Repins per hour/day: ??
Comments per hour/day: ??

Tumblr

Follows per day: 200
Unfollows per hour/day: ??
Text posts per day: 100
Photo posts per day: 75
Video posts per hour/day: ??
Comments per hour/day: ??
Likes per hour/day: ??
Reblogs per day: 250 (Includes text and photo posts)



That's it for my questions. Please if you have any answers to them, please state them below, it will not only help me but it will help many users too. I am hoping this is the "stop" for all people looking for these answers. I have looked everywhere and can't find the answers, so hopefully they will all be answered here

And anyone else with anymore rate limit questions post them below.

I may have missed features for some to ask rate limit questions so please answer those too that I missed as well as the ones I have above.

I would really like to know the rate limits so I can best use the softwares I have.

Thank you!

    You should do your own research before starting threads like this. Most of those limits can be found with a basic search on Google.

      Thanks for the help, but I had searched for these limits and couldn't find anything, as I said I found conflicting info and only on a small fraction of the specific features which I needed the rate limits for.

      The only things I could find were Pinterest follow limit which seems to be 300 per day, but not sure.

      Then for Instagram I saw some conflicting info like some people said 250 likes per hour, some said 300, and some said 500.

      I started this thread so all of the info could be in one spot easily accessed, and because I would like to know really bad and i'm sure others would too.

      Can you point me to some links with this info? I can't find them.

    Hi there, thanks for posting and for twitter unfollows per day if you are using some apps like Manage Flitter you can unfollow upto 2000 or even more followers without getting your account suspended. I love using this app.

    I have spent thousands on fake likes and similar nonsense. I have found they give a traffic spike, but nothing sustained. The only thing that has really worked for me long term is focusing on user engagement. That means content that makes people behave as if they are interested, and Google has great ways to detect the interest

    I just know Twitter limits to 1000 followers per day not sure if its been updated. Although they temporarily blocked me after sending out even less than 1,000 if your followers are below 1,000. Once it went over I am allowed to add followers but I don't even bother anymore.

    If you're having to worry about these limits, you're going about the whole social media thing completely wrong. People who abuse the system aren't likely to be around long. Good luck making money and staying ahead of the banhammer.
