    I am currently running a little side project for Instagram I wanted to automize via FollowerLike. But somewhere I seem to be running it at the wrong settings.

    I picked a couple of large accounts in my niche and target their followers. I do FLC with the recommended interval of 15-20 sec.
    I only follow accounts who had been active the past 30 days AND don't follow more than 500 accounts total.

    I was running FL for 6 hours now and followed 160 people. What am I doing wrong?
    Looking at the archive I see that most scraping efforts fail. But right now my engagements is at 10% and I really don't see a point in targeting anyone.

    So can i lower the interval even further?

    I tried following commenting and liking followers but actually half of these are ppl using bots in my niche. But there scraping took even longer.

    FollowLiker's scraper was not meant to be a "mass" (fast) scraper. If you want to scrape users outside FollowLiker, check out my Instagram Scraper. You can scrape users with it faster and filter them as well then import into FollowLiker and disable the scraping feature completely. That way, FollowLiker will also run faster as it won't have to scrape users and will be focused on following only.

    How so? Maybe I worded it wrongly, because my main language is not English, but I can assure you it's a very easy process. You scrape users the same way you do in FollowLiker, which is by inputting a source, whether a specific user's followers or a hashtag. Then you go to your project in FollowLiker, on the second page (make sure advanced settings is checked) click on "Scraped Users", right click and select "Import", choose the file with users and you're done. After that you can unselect the "Scrape User" in FollowLiker and FollowLiker will still be able to follow users because the "Scraped Users" database will be filled with users manually imported by you.
