    Hey so I've started a new account and been botting it using FL, and it's been really rough. I haven't made a new account in years so I'm only used to botting aged accounts. With that being said, I have a few questions:

    1. On my 180k account, I can follow 1000 and unfollow 1000 at the same time. However, I've been seeing people say to never follow and unfollow on the same day, which seems to be true for my new account, as it is perpetually on a 24 hour follow block. So when you say never do it on the same day, what exactly does that mean? Do you switch from following to unfollowing at midnight? Do you stop following before you go to sleep, wake up, and then start unfollowing? Or something else?

    2. Not only are my follows being blocked, but my likes are too. After like 150 likes I'll get a message saying "Sorry, this feature isn't available right now, blah blah blah". 150 is really low, so am I doing something else wrong? Keep in mind that my account is literally 5 days old. Well I created it and posted one picture 13 weeks ago, but that's it so I guess it's still 5 days old.

    3. How low should my limits for following, liking, and unfollowing be? It's ridiculous how much I get banned.

    4. Lastly, I run both my aged account and new account on 2 different FL sessions but on the same home IP. Is this bad? I just canceled my 10 private proxies so I'd really not want to buy more, but will it be okay to keep it this way?


    Thank you!!

    I think you should start really slow, like following and liking around 100-200/day. If you are okay, then increase the limits by 10-20 every 1-2 days. The key is to scale it up slowly.
    Also, I wouldn't follow and unfollow on the same day.
    Just follow and like until X followings, then unfollow and like for a few days.

    After your unfollowing spree, wait for 24h before starting to follow again.

    EDIT: Make your delays reaaaaaaally long in the beginning, don't just finish in 2 hours.

    Yes, that is right.
    In the beginning start off slowly and gradually increase the settings.
    I also recommend that at least twice in a month just turn off FL to rest your accounts.
    You want your activity to seem normal, so stay away from any patterns etc.

    Hope that helped :)

    Thank you guys so much! I'm using FLC on this new account, so when unfollowing and liking should I just like pictures under a certain hashtag or something? I forgot to mention I was using FLC, so hopefully it doesn't change anything. As for the limits, I can't even reach 100 follows/likes in a day before being blocked! Maybe I'll start with like 50 for a week with no bans and then slowly raise it up. My delays are 60-70 seconds for everything. Thanks!

    No problem man!�� Im using FLC too, and when unfollowing I just like by hashtags in my niche. Yeah you should find that number what you still can follow, then slowly increase that. I think your delays can be higher too, even 2-3 minutes per following when you follow less than 100 a day.
    GL and update what worked for you :)
