    Hey guys - been using FL for like rounds for the past few months and recently set it up to do unfollows. Now I want it to do auto follows and likes of users accounts that I specify. Got everything figured out except getting stuck on this:

    How do I set FL so that it likes the most recent picture that the user posted? The only options I see in the drop down box are: RELEVANT, POPULAR, USERS PHOTO, LOCATION

    I just want to like the user recently followed's most recent picture.

    Thanks

    On "scrape photo/video" tab set the scrape limit to 1 and tick "scrape only top result"

    Hey thanks - When I check that option - it still prompts me to right click and add photo search queries.

    Any idea?

    It's asking for keywords or however you want to search those images.

    In other words you don't have any search parameters listed

    So this is the parameters that FL will use to decide which picture to like?

    Got it thanks!

    One more question - I was watching the activity log and this is what I saw:

    Scraping/Finding followings of user: shainablissblack [shainablissblack]

    My account is shainablissblack - does this mean that it is scraping my followers? This just seems odd ... I would expect that it would show one of the users accounts that I am trying to get followers from!

    FIgured it out - had RETRIEVE EXISTING FOLLOWERS AND FOLLOWINGS checked for some reason. That is why it was grabbing from my list

    Last question - is there a way to get FL to like a picture at the same time (or within a few seconds) of following someone? Would seem more likely that they would follow you back if you do a like right after following.

    Thx

    There is such option and it is called FLC (follow, like, comment) but it really doesn't work. You can read about the method from the official tutorial or from the imristo one

    I haven't had any problems with those features. They all work for me. To answer your question, you are scraping your own following. To stop it just remove your account from the parameters. Hope that helps!

    It will follow - but no likes.

    basically you could just scrape the users and add them to the photo/video liking list but even then the following and liking doesn't happen at the same time

    I grabbed this out of the FL manual - and did it step by step - but it still isn't liking and following at the same time

    "If you want to follow users and at the same time like and/or comment on each user's photos/videos, do the following:

    Step 1: Go to the "General Settings", reduce the "Automation Interval" to 15 - 20 seconds. See the image below:"

    Yes, that's the FLC method I was talking above and as I said - it does not work
