    When I first started using followliker I would set it up to like 1000 pics on a # or even maybe use 3 hastags, mixing it up every now and then.

    Then I discovered FLC method. Like 1 pic on a user who follows a user similar to me. (1000 likes)
    This was a game changer.
    I no longer wasted "likes" on spam photos or bots. my following boomed I was getting 100+ a day.

    Lately FLC method has not been working so well .. I get 15-40 followers a day on average. I'm wondering if its time to go back to liking on hashtags.

    turns out followliker was liking 15 pics per user! Even though I had set the like limit to 1.
    Couldnt figure out what was going wrong so I just deleted them and added them again into follow liker from scratch... back up to 100 a day from 2000 likes :)

    Your method is still good but as more and more users are doing this it becomes less effective.

    And what about renew your FLC settings ?
    I've been in that case 2 months ago and now by renewing my settings, I'm back in the business.

    I was just setting up Followliker to test the FLC method on some accounts and was very happy to find this recent post that confirms its still a valid technique. The settings are a nice bonus I wasn't expecting, thanks!

    One question about the General settings though, can you confirm that you mean "Automation Interval 14-24 Minutes" and not Seconds? It seems to me like that's a very long interval to manage to perform 2000 likes over the course of a day..

    Yeah I would never reach the full 2000 in a day, I've reduced it now to 1-5 minutes

    FLC method simply refers to how you set up followliker if you want to follow users and at the same time like and/or comment on each user's photos/videos. There are many ways and methodologies on how to set up followliker, this is one of them. If you own followliker you can find info in the online user manual under Advanced > Instagram > FLC.
