How advanced is your engagement team on Instagram? If you’re using any of the Instagram engagement tools like Piqora or Curalate you better curb your enthusiasm for your tagged and fan photos. Instagram announced that they now have API limits to likes, comments and follows. So if your team is out searching for tagged photos to like or leaving comment on a high volume of photos you’re going to hit a wall with your engagement platform. Be prepared to take a break each hour to allow the API calls to reset so you can begin your double tapping anew.
See the limits below and get more info on the Instagram Developers blog:
