    I just ran my first FL campaign last night. I have one account (4 years old, with a shop link in my bio) I use to promote my clothing brand currently at 6800 followers. Here's my settings/numbers:

    Tasks:
    -Scrape Users
    -Follow/ Unfollow
    -Like
    *Shuffle tasks
    *Retrieve Existing followers/followings: 200

    Scrape User limit: 13, program to run between 12-9 am
    *Ignore Private users
    *Ignore users with profile pic
    *I have hashtags set up to scrape (mainly other clothing brands I used in the past to manually build up my acct)

    Follow User settings
    Follower to following ratio: 0.00
    Follow limit: 5-10
    Daily follow limit: 100-175
    Delay follow: 40-60 secs
    Follow users who posted: 0-20 days
    Follow users who have: 25-9999 followers
    Follow users who have: 25-9999 followings
    *Ignore Private users

    UnFollow User settings
    Follower to following ratio: 0.00
    Unfollow after: 3 days
    Unfollow limit: 5-10
    Daily unfollow limit: 50-75
    Follow users who posted: 0-20 days
    Delay unfollow: 60-74 secs
    *Don't unfollow followers

    Like Photo settings
    Like limit: 5-10
    Daily like limit: 75-157
    Delay like: 41-59 secs

    My Questions:

    -How do these look, anything you'd recommend changing? I went a little conservative with the above as it's my first time and I didn't want to push the envelope for a possible ban, this is after all where I make the majority of my online sales so a ban would be detrimental. However, being that I'm new and we have a lot of experienced users on here, I'm open to suggestions!

    -My like setting is not working. When I look under activity I see mostly stuff referencing my following task but nothing on the liking front. Under "statistics" it shows Likes at: 0. What to do? ​I haven't reached out to tech yet as from what I've read it looks like it takes them a while to respond.

    Your account is old and these limits are low lol I think its good to start with 400-500 and then scale things up a bit everytime but the delays are good it really depends you can just start like that and experiment too

    1. The don't unfollow followers is not needed, you will never notice the loss of followers if you unfollow them. The problem will occure when you will reach the 7-8K ( I don't remember what was the limit ) and you can follow anymore.
    2. Don't unfollow and follow in the same day, you will get temp ban.

    Better safe than sorry, but I think you can ramp up a little even with those settings.

    Under "task selection" I click "like" then under "Like Photo settings" I select my options. Is there a step I'm missing?

    I have got an account which is about 2 months old. I am following about 500 to 600 people a day and liking about 1000 to 1100 pics every day. I guess with an aged account like yours, you could easily do the same.

    I would suggest that you slowly increase your settings day by day.

    Follow users who have: 25-9999 followers
    Follow users who have: 25-9999 followings

    These 9999 limits, make them smaller. I used to put 1000 because anyone who has in excess of 1k followers is unlikely to follow you back and anyone who is following in excess of 1k is mostly doing the same thing as you are doing. Lowering the numbers in here will help to eliminate this unwanted audience

    I posted this in another thread but no one chimed in, anyone:

    1. If I have Unfollow set up as "unfollow after 3 days" is it unfollowing every 3 days AFTER I set up FL, or unfollowing people daily (that have followed me before I set up FL)? I ask because under "statistics" I've seen Unfollows for the past few days. Here are my settings:

    UnFollow User settings
    Follower to following ratio: 0.00
    Unfollow after: 3 days
    Unfollow limit: 5-10
    Daily unfollow limit: 50-100
    Follow users who posted: 0-20 days
    Delay unfollow: 60-74 secs
    *Don't unfollow followers


    2. If I have "don't unfollow followers" & "blacklist unfollowed users" unchecked, does it unfollow just those people who I've followed since starting the program or EVERYONE following me back or not? And is there a way to set it up to where it unfollows only those I've followed since running FL?

    3. I see a lot of people saying not to Follow/ unfollow in the same day so should I just uncheck the "unfollow" section then every few days reselect it and run it? Trying not to send off any red flags. My accounts 4 years old fyi...
