Our Grade – D
We strongly suspect that this provider runs another tool behind the scenes while charging extreme markup.
At a Glance
21Social.ca strikes us as a late-entrant single owner type of service. The website design is poor and the company, somehow, doesn’t have a Trustpilot page.
Our guess is that this is a single owner service started by someone who became proficient at using FollowLiker or Jarvee. We see no evidence to the contrary that there is anything particularly advanced or skilled going on behind the scenes.
It sticks out in a sea of beautiful, glossy websites as a basic one without the owner demonstrating much competency. Great work if you can get it, but it’s shocking that this business has so many good reviews.

This is a little pricey. Notice that the gold and bronze plans are waitlist only. This is an interesting tactic.
This is just a person or maybe two people running FollowLiker or Jarvee. These are advanced 3rd-party growth apps. They are quite complicated to use, and a lot can be accomplished by experienced users.
This becomes obvious when you try to check out and are faced with this:
First of all, the checkout process is a clunky WooCommerce process which makes us doubt that anyone affiliated with this business has a programming background. But the Pinterest inclusion makes things clear.
What’s significant about Pinterest? We’ve investigated over 100 growth businesses. Almost none of them offer Pinterest tools. Nobody would ever develop a Pinterest tool from scratch. We know that these other tools provide Pinterest off the shelf. That’s what’s going on here.
Integrity & Reputation
This business is a massive ripoff. However, they carefully curate reviews and seem to be picky about who signs up. The result is that there are dozens of people on their Facebook page who have been filled with glee at having someone charge them $150 per month to run off-the-shelf software.
I’m equal parts outraged and impressed.
If you want to pay $150 per month for someone to run Jarvee on your account, go for it. Remember, you’ll still be subject to action blocks as Instagram detects your account using automation software.
