i'm on IG and I have nearly 1000 followers built up over nearly two years. Some of the most popular IGers are the ones that followed tens of thousands of people right from the start, that'll rack up your followers overnight, 90% spam, then just ditch 99% of them after a few weeks, they don't realise it and you look like you're super popular, then post the usual every day IG magic and you'll tick along nicely. Especially if you live in New York. I know i've  got a lot of 'follow me back' followers but I hope that a large portion of people follow me because they like my images, otherwise what's the point  ?
