The Global Tools – The Instagram Engagement Groups Tool


Using the Follow and Unfollow strategy is a well-established method for expanding an Instagram account, but some individuals misuse it, making it resemble spam-like behavior, which can damage the account’s trust rating.

To boost your trust score, you must concentrate on increasing your engagement rate. Authentic likes and comments on your posts are what comes to mind when we talk about engagement, as they help to enhance the trustworthiness of your account

What is IG Engagement Groups Tool?

The IG Engagement Groups tool can be a great assistance if you are part of comment pods. With this tool, you can manage all your accounts that are participating in one place.

To access the tool, go to Global Tools and click on the IG Engagement Groups tab, which has two sub-tabs: Comments and Likes.

The Comments sub-tab

In this section, you can include the accounts that belong to your Instagram pods or engagement groups. These accounts are responsible for exchanging comments.

💡 The IG Engagement Groups tool functions in a similar manner to the Comment tool, but the comment actions done through it are not limited by user and post-filters.

Sections of the Comments sub-tab

1.Run Timers section:

  • The Run Timers feature enables you to specify the interval time between operations.
  • The “Comment as fast as possible” option allows the tool to comment on posts as quickly as it can, ignoring the run timers. However, it’s advised to use this option carefully.
  • Select the “Keep the tool started” option if you want the tool to continue running even after all the comments have been posted.

2. Run Limits section:

  • This setting allows you to control the maximum number of comments that can be made per account per day or hour.

3. Accounts Used To Comment section:

  • Use the “Add Account” button to add accounts that will leave comments.
  • Click “Remove all” to delete all listed accounts.
  • The added accounts are displayed in a table along with the account’s number of followers, followings, total actions executed, and category.

💡The Category option is used to limit the interaction between accounts in different categories. We will discuss this option further later on.

4. Usernames That Will Receive Comments section:

  • This is where you you can add the accounts that will receive comments from the accounts you added earlier.

Adding an account:

Click on the “Add Accounts” button to add an account. This will open a new window where you can add multiple accounts (1 account per line), set the maximum number of extractions per day and per post, add a category, and choose whether to execute a like after the comment. For more information on the Category feature, please refer to the Comment Text section.

💡 You can add accounts managed in SU Social as well as accounts outside of SU Social.

Receive comment settings:

  • Once you’ve added the accounts, you can set the X number of most recent posts that will get extracted from the accounts you’ve added here.
  • You can also control how often SU Social will extract the posts from the receiving accounts.
  • You may opt to only extract posts that have a certain keyword in the caption

5. Posts To Comment section

  • If there is a specific post/s you want to leave comments on, you can add the URL of that post in the designated box, one post URL per line.
  • Should you wish to like the post after the account has left the comment, you can check the ‘Like post after comment’ checkbox.

6. Comment Text section

Setting up the comment message:

  • Now, that you have added the accounts that will give and receive the comments, you are now ready to add your comment message.
  • You can use spintax on your comment message to add variations and you can also add emojis to make it more interesting.
  • There are several supported tokens* which when used will be replaced by the matching user information.

💡 *Example:  [USERNAME] will be replaced with the username of the account that is receiving the comment.

Comment by category:

  • Earlier we mentioned about Category. This is a nifty feature that enables you to set apart the accounts which will be used to comment and the accounts that will receive that specific comments.
  • How this works is you add the same keyword in the Category of the accounts that will interact with each other
  • You can set-up a specific comment for each category

💡 Example: accounts that have keyword “dog” in Category, will only comment on accounts that have “dog” category as well and it will use the comment configured for that particular category.

7. Results section

  • In this section, you will see the results of the comments that the tool has executed.
  • You will see other information such as:

➡ Username – this is the account that gave the comment

➡ EngagedUsername – is the username that received the comment

➡ Comment – the comment message that was used

The Likes sub-tab

The Likes sub-tab provides an option to exchange likes with other members of your engagement groups. It functions similarly to the Instagram Like tool, but with the advantage of not being constrained by the filters present in that tool.

Sections of the Likes sub-tab

1. Run Timers section

  • In this section, you have the option to specify the time interval between each ‘like’ action. Additionally, there is a sub-option labeled “Like as fast as possible” that disregards all run timers, including the secondary ones. Please note that excessively liking posts at a rapid pace may lead to issues.

2. Secondary Run Timers section

  • This option sets the time interval for specific accounts assigned to it.
  • The “Username that will receive likes” section includes a checkbox labeled “Use Secondary Timers”. Enabling this option will apply the run timers set in this section instead of the primary run timer.

3. Run Limits section

  • You can set the number of likes that you want the accounts to execute on an hourly and daily basis.
  • You can also keep this tool started by checking the option “Keep the tool started”

4. Accounts Used To Like section

  • In this area, you will need to add the accounts that you wish to give likes. When you click the “Add Account”, a new window will open that allows you to select the accounts to participate.
  • The accounts you added will be listed on the corresponding table and you will see the #Followers, #Followings, #Total Actions executed by the account and Category.

5. Usernames That Will Receive Likes

Adding an account:

  • This is where you add the usernames from whom the posts will get extracted from to receive likes
  • To add an account, just click on the “Add account” and a window will show up. From there, you can add the usernames, 1 username per line
  • Set the max extractions per day and max actions per post. And just like on the Comment sub-tab, you can assign a category on the account.

Receive like settings:

  • Once you’ve added the accounts, you can set the X number of most recent posts that will get extracted from the accounts you’ve added here.
  • You can also control how often SU Social will extract the posts from the receiving accounts.
  • You may opt to only extract posts that have a certain keyword in the caption

6. Posts To Like section

  • If you’re looking to give likes to older post or a specific post from any user, then you may just copy the URL of that post and then paste it on the field box then click the “Add” button.
  • You also have the option to save the posts after its liked or if it is a video, you can check the option “View post after like”

 7. Results section

  • You can tell the progress and see successful actions that the tool has executed on this section.

➡ Username – this is the account that gave the like

➡ EngagedUsername – is the username that received the like.


In conclusion, growing an Instagram account requires an authentic engagement rate. Following and unfollowing can be a technique, but it can hurt the account’s trust score if it is abused. The IG Engagement Groups tool provides an efficient way to manage comment pods and engagement groups. It allows you to add accounts to give and receive comments, define the interval time, control the maximum number of comments daily and hourly per selected account, and categorize accounts. The tool also helps with the Likes sub-tab, where you can set the delay between each like, and the secondary run timers section, which will be used by specific accounts assigned to this option. The IG Engagement Groups tool is an excellent way to increase engagement and improve the trust score of your Instagram account.
