    In follow liker, in the scrape user settings.. what does the "scrape only top result" setting mean? It says it may cause limited results. So, if i understand this correctly, if i'm using this setting to scrape that users followers with millions of followers and getting fresh followers all the time... then I should be fine and won't receive limited results, correct?

    also, can you tune me in on how the scrape user limit setting affects or correlates to follow limit?

    yea, i think you'll be just fine if you set it to scrape the latest followers of an acc with a million followers, so there are always enough new followers, but you'll see, if you try it, if there's enough new followers when you scrape or not

    answering to your other question: if you set the following/liking limit higher than the scraping limit, in other words: you don't scrape enough, there won't be enough people to follow/picture to like

    ok that makes sense i suppose. but if theory holds true.... then it will go back and keep scraping in sessions until i hit the daily limit though, correct?

    or if my setting is set to follow 600 people in a day... then should I set my scrape setting to 600?

    only if you run one session daily, it won't start new sessions automatically, but you can always set up more sessions to run, so you're able to get more fresh results by keeping the scraping limit at a lower value

    so what do you recommend? should i set it to scrape my max daily follow count? also, how do set the number of daily sessions?
    and so to be clear... scrape only top result = most recent followers, correct? thanks for helping the noob

    How often does Followliker scrape? Does it scrape before each task.

    E.g.

    If I my limit of liking photos is set to 10-20 do I only need to set the scrape limit to 20. Even though the daily limit is 200?

    ??????????

    Does anyone know the answer to this question? If I am following 10-15 users per task then is it ok to set the "Scrape User Limit" to 15 so that it scrapes new users before every task?

    You should set the scrape limit to 20 - 40 in my opinion. This way you will almost always follow people that is on instagram at the moment which is a huge + for the followback ratio!

    if I follow 10-15 per task and I scrape only 15 isn't that better than scraping 40? The more it scrapes the newer the followers?

    I know it's older post, but wanted to chip in...if you constantly keep scraping for new users 10-15, FL might not be able to finish all of the tasks in time since its spending time on scraping. Gotta find a balance.
