    So I've been using FL for a little over a month (on a 4 year old account) and have been slowly increasing my like's, follows/ unfollows and have noticed that it's not reaching the below settings:

    Follow User Settings:
    Follow limit: 10-20
    Daily Follow limit: 350-400
    Delay: 40-60 secs

    Un-Follow User Settings:
    UnFollow limit: 10-20
    Daily Follow limit: 325-400
    Delay: 55-60 secs

    Like Settings:
    Like limit: 20-30
    Daily like limit: 500-600
    Delay: 30-40

    It's reaching about 150 follows, 250 unfollows, 300 likes per day and I have FL running 11 hours in a day. I know there's no ban as everything's still working fine. What may be causing this and what can I adjust??

    You're not giving it enough time to complete all the actions. So you can either let it run for longer, or lower your delays (not recommended)

    If you're adamant on letting it run for only 11 hours, then I would get rid of the likes completely. The time that they take up isn't worth the return they produce. Ie. you have to do A LOT of likes to get any decent amount of people following you back.

    By working out the average delay times and daily limits, it works out as taking around 58880 seconds to complete. 58880 seconds = 16.3556 hours

    Either lower your delays your increase your running time. :)

    You could cut the unfollow in half. I do just about the same in about 11 or 12 hours. What's probably going wrong is you're not scraping enough accounts to find new people to follow. Do a little bit of digging and have at least 5 relevant accounts to scrape from.

    I'd recommend having more if you use global settings and also scrape the top users. i have about 20 big accounts atm to scrape from

    1/2 the amount i'm unfollowing?

    Under "Task Selection" it's set to Retrieve 200 & under "Scrape User Settings" I have it set to 18, which should I bring up?

    I have about 7 accounts I'm scraping from (the majority of which have over 20k followers).

    Enlighten me again on what the top users scrape means. It scrapes their most active or new followers?

    No I meant the delay in unfollowing. Instead of 55-60 you could make it 25-30.
