We ordered 500 Instagram Followers from SocialRoar to test their services out. Overall we were fairly happy with the order. Our followers came on time but they were about average quality, and didn't look just like real followers.
Although the order went fine, their customer support was unresponsive. They also lack a refund or retention policy, which isn't a great sign in case something goes wrong with your order. If you want high-quality followers from a reliable company, we recommend you check out the top of our provider list.
SocialRoar tries to find a nice balance between quality, price, and service. And based on our testing, they mostly accomplish that. Their site focuses only on Instagram, and offers services for both increasing your followers, and getting more likes for your photos.
After the Instagram purge in mid-December 2014, we’re happy to report that we didn’t lose any followers with this account. They delivered 502, and that’s where it has stayed.
SocialRoar focuses only on Instagram. You'll find plans for both Followers and Likes.

You can easily send a message to SocialRoar through the Contact Us link at the top-right of the page.
We tried to get in touch with SocialRoar before ordering, but unfortunately we never heard back from them. We'll update this section if that changes.
After ordering, we like to send another set of questions to see if they treat a paying customer any differently. If we get a response to our first questions, we'll send our post-order questions.
The Instagram Followers we got from SocialRoar are about average. If you want to just improve your numbers, they can help. If you're looking for great-looking followers that look just like real users, you might want to check out the top of our provider list.
Within five minutes of ordering, we began seeing new followers, and after ten minutes, our order was halfway fulfilled. The followers came in at a steady pace, which is a definite plus.
They completed our order about 30 minutes after ordering with just over 100% of the promised number. This makes their services among the fastest delivery times that we’ve tested to date.
Most of our new Instagram followers from SocialRoar were acceptable, but far from great. While all the followers had a profile picture which looked realistic, their usernames were very random, making them look fake.
Each follower had only about 2-3 photos, in other words quite inactive, which didn’t match their “Real-Looking” claim. The ratio of follower to following was about average (1:10), but there seemed to be little to no interaction among the followers.
When compared to other top Instagram follower providers, SocialRoar’s Follower quality is just about average. Not the best we've seen, but not the worst either.
A week after ordering, the retention rate of our new SocialRoar followers was exactly 100% of the initial number received. This makes us very comfortable, because we found other providers might initially over-deliver on our order, only to have that number drop below 100% after just a few days.
For us, the retention rate also says something about the quality–not only the quality of the followers delivered, but also about the quality of the provider. Consistency is important. Even if they eventually arrive at the same number, we’d rather see a steady number of followers than one that spikes way up only to drop back down.
After reviewing their services, we put SocialRoar right in the middle of the pack when combining all factors. We liked their ease of ordering and pricing plans, which gives even the budget conscious an option starting at just $3.00. While they offer fast, reliable service and decent prices, their customer service is lacking. If they can resolve their issues with support, then we might be swayed to rank them a bit higher.
The followers we received were average, based on our tests from different providers. They look decent, but they don't all look like real users. Their followers did survive the Insta-Purge of 2014, however, so that's a great point in their favor. Overall, if you want the best quality followers you can get, we recommend TweetAngels or BuyCheapFollowersLikes.
