    I have noticed on Followliker for instagram that no matter what settings I seem to choose, the posts that it likes progressively get older and older. For example, initially it will like or comment on posts from 20 minutes ago. When I check back later all of the posts will be from 2 hours ago. Sometime later in the day it will eventually get to 24 hours. I didn't know if this is what being banned is? So I didn't use FL for 2 days. When I tried again today it was only like and commenting on posts from 3 days prior.

    Not sure if Instagram has somehow tagged all FL interactions and is now purposefully delaying the content being returned to FL scrapes? If so, does this make FL now obsolete going forward?

    Any opinions?

    Try deleting your scraped photos & start over. FL may still be using older photos left in que.

    Yeah, I finally figured out that was the problem. FL seems to scrape a series of photos and then continue to like and comment on those photo's for the next couple of days. Not sure why. So although it starts out liking photo's that are minutes old, you eventually get to hours or days old photo's.

    Seems like a bug to me. Not sure why FL doesn't scrape new photo's every X seconds. I have even tried setting the scrape limit to something low like 15 and it still takes almost a day to scrape new images automatically. So for now, it seems that you have to clear scraped photo's and statistics every couple hours to keep the content fresh that FL is using.

    Hopefully FL can adjust this in the future somehow. Anyone else have problems with FL using stale content?

    I faced the same problem. What I do is keep the scrape limit to under 25 and then select "scrape only top results"
