    I just downloaded Follow Liker. The tutorial that comes with is a little hard to understand. I wanted to make a thread that had easy step by step instructions. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    While FL user manual isn't the best out there, most of softwares don't even have one. You should appreciate it.

    It's not hard to understand at all, and FL is very easy to use software. My question to you is, have you even tried to use the software? It's pretty self-explanatory and doesn't require good English to learn how to use it.

    Basically, you open the software, right click > Add new account > Enter Details > Choose Settings > Press "START". That's it.

    And you're comparing FL with a billion company Sony who pays thousands for their articles to be written by professionals who does writing full time? It doesn't make sense to me..

    If you have any specific questions about FL, feel free to ask, I will do my best to help you out.

    Considering FL's price, and the sales they've made these past couple of years; it does make perfect sense to me that they invest in a professional writer to edit their user-guide. FL is the most hyped bot on BHW, and that translates into one thing: success.
    So if I, as a beginner, were to find their tutorial complicated or difficult to understand, and with a price tag like that, I'd definitely complain, too.

    Nevertheless, it is worth mentioning that I had no issues with the manual, and FL is a stellar piece of software. Just sharing my two cents on the comparison to Sony. That is all.

    Wow, the board won't let me post what I want to because it says I'm trying to sell something, which I'm not.

    I basically want to know whether I can scrape one person's users (say 1,000) and then go and like three photos of each of those users.

    Yes, you can do that, it's called 'FLC' method in FL. Go to the User Manual > Advanced > Instagram > FLC Method. You will find step-by-step instructions how to do it.

    @ OP

    I've read your original post before you've edited. Although, I do agree with FL guide not clearly explaining how each feature works, their wordings are understandable. It can't be all that bad, most user's were able to read and understand how the software works.

    No one really reads the manual. They just dive right in and experiment with the settings. Only way to learn. Trial and error.

    Thanks 02 Hero. I've gone and followed the instructions in the manual for the FLC method. I'm still finding the English really bad and unreadable... for example, the top says: :If you want to follow an Instagram user's followers, and at the same time like and/or comment on each followers photos, do the following"

    That could mean so many things. It's such bad English, and not a very good sentence. ANYWAY - what I really want to know, is when you make the queries (who knows what that is?) Do you put in the same username when you type FL:username in the Scrape User Settings and Scrape Photo settings?

    I just want to go into ONE user's followers and like 3 pics of each of their followers. No follow. No comment. Just that.

    I just did exactly what the used guide told me, and it hasn't liked one photo in the last 5 minutes. I'm about to throw this thing out of the window.

    In the FLC method, am I actually typing in FLC:Beyonce (Just using that as an example user I want to scrape)? It's still not working.

    Try this. I assume the user you want to FLC has a decent amount of followers?


    Task Selection-
    tick the following boxes: scrape user,scrape photo, like


    Scrape user settings-
    scrape user limit: 35
    ignore private users: tick
    Select new: query type = normal search, query = FLC:username


    scrape photo settings-
    scrape photo limit:3
    scrape only top result: tick
    Select new: query type = Relevant, query FLC:username

    I just started running them now, and am going to see how it goes.

    I want to like about 150 per hour - I tried writing my setting here, but the board won't let me
    Do you have any ideas about those settings?

    Liking 150 per hour is a bit overboard imo.

    With my settings, I do about 20-35+ likes an per hour.

    Paper-Boy, I'm not following anyone or commenting. Do you think 150 is still too much?
    Would you mind sharing your settings? General and Wizard?

    I'm a bit confused about how the scrape works. If i'm scraping 35 from the user, does that mean it scrapes 35 every cycle?
    I basically want to scrape a thousand of the most recent followers and then like their pics.

    duceduc - your suggestion is working a charm.

    Are you looking for guidance or sample settings?

    duceduc, I'm looking for a step by step sample setting, like the ones you gave me above for the FCL (which is working great)

    -Task selection
    tick unfollow
    tick retrieve existing followers and following: 100

    -unfollow user settings
    follower to following ratio: 0.00
    unfollow after: 0days (0 means FL will unfollow all)

    --------------------
    [NOTE: these are aggressive settings and is what I am doing. I don't advise you to follow these settings below. It may lead to temp ban and or captcha popups. Maybe do a daily limit of 200-300?]
    unfollow 40-50
    daily unfollow limit: 3k - 3k
    delay unfollow: 20-40 sec
    -----------------------

    tick 'don't unfollow followers'
    tick 'blacklist unfollow users' (there will be a list of users in your blacklist. It will not follow these people again.)

    In general settings set your interval to 2-4 min

    Better yet they should make a video. I remember when I first got FL my hardest issue was knowing what crap to actually click to create and run a project.
