FLC Followliker Settings: Following rate is much faster than liking rate

    I would like to like 2-3 photos per follower on followliker. I have set up the FLC settings as follows

    The problem is that the following rate is higher than the liking rate even though I adjusted the setting to like more than follow. For example, Folllowliker might follow 100 users while only liking 50 photos from those users. What ends up happening is that the program runs out of time and isn't able to like enough photos of those it followed. The program always end up performing more follow activities that liking activities!

    Any insights as to why it is based on the settings I have? More info can be provided upon request.

    Running 3 accounts on followliker
    General Settings:
    Account per proxy 3
    account threads 15
    automation interval 15-20 seconds
    Enabled continuous automation

    Task Selected:
    Scrape User
    Scrape Photo
    Follow
    Like
    Shuffled Tasks - Checked
    Retrieve existing followers and followings: unchecked

    Scrape User Settings
    Query Type: User's Followers
    Query: FLC:"username I want to scrape followers from"
    scrape top results only
    ignore private users
    ignore usrers with no photos

    Scrape Photo Settings
    Scrape photo limit : 3
    Scrape only top results
    Query Type: Relevant
    Query: FLC:"username I want to scrape followers from"

    Follow User Settings
    Follower.Following ratio 0.00
    Follow limit 10-15
    Daily follow limit 550-600
    delay follow 50-70
    follow users who posted 0-10 days ago
    ignore private user

    Like photo settings
    Like Limit 30-45
    daily like limit 1800-2100
    delay like 50-70 seconds

    Running time: 12:00am to 11:59pm


    Here's my thought. I picked the same delay for following users and liking photos to be 50-70 seconds. Further, since I wanted to like 3 photos for each follower, I purposely selected a like limit of 30-45 because it is 3x the follow limit of 10-15. However, in practice, followliker ends up following more than it does liking photos (not even close to the 3x per follower ratio I was hoping for).

    Thoughts? Help!

    It's a FollowLiker bug which has been existing forever. If you read the official thread, many people have reported it before.

    FLC does 1 user per task, so that might be one of the problems. And sometimes it suddenly stops doing anything at all, which is kinda weird.

    Ask the support team. I'm pretty sure it's bugged and the people I've talked to so far didn't have a solution for this. I'm not sure if there is a solution by FollowLiker themselves, but liking with FLC does not reach its limits for sure. I'm only following right now with FLC.

    It's not a bug. If some of the scrape users don't have photos it is natural that the follow rate will be higher than the like rate and it's not even limited to that. You can set daily follow limit a bit higher than the daily like limit.

    My FL has scraped over 10k users and I ignore private profiles, which means most of them have pictures, yet it doesn't reach more than 300 likes / day.

    after followliker reaches the follow limit for the day, it will perform like activities only for the rest of the day, right? MY question is, after it is done following all the people it needs to for the day, will it like the photos from the people i followed or will it like photos from new scraped users?

    Will this be a potential solution? Set the daily follow limit lower so that it can spend the rest of the day reaching the like limit?

    Why is that? Many people including me have "a lot" of accounts and I don't think doing 1 project per account is a good solution for this problem.

    because it just can't , FLC is an advanced setting you can only do one acc per project if you running even only two accs it gonna messed up the setting and the result is not what you expected ,well maybe you can use alot of accs for FLC but i'm too stupid to figured out the settings , you can contact the support if you want better explanation :p

    this is my setting you can try if you like it (it works best at least for me)

    If scraping based on hashtags do you need to put the hashtag symbol plus the hashtag you want to use? Ex: FLC:#hashtag

    Also, in the guide it says to change the automation Interval (under general settings) to 15-20 seconds. What do you have yours set to?

    Im giving this a try now to test out what happens. Meanwhile, Can anyone confirm?

    I started running it with a limit of 30 follows just to test, I've now notice that its not liking any pictures at all. Is there something im to enter into the like photo query? The guide says to leave it blank, but I put in FLC: (type: relevant) as someone suggested.

    After doing some testing, I've come to the conclusion the FLC does not work when your scraped users are coming from query type (Users who tagged) FLC:"#hashtag". Once I switched to users followers, scrape photo settings starting being populated.
