Followliker: Should it take more than 12+ hours to follow only 300 people?

    I started using Followliker for my Instagram account a few weeks ago, and right now I have the program set to follow 300 users a day. But I'm wondering why it takes so long for FL to follow that many people.

    For example, I start the program around 6 am and it doesn't follow 250 people until 7 pm! That's about 13 hours. And I know a lot of you guys follow WAY more people daily than I do. How come it's taking so long?

    Maybe my settings are the reason why. A few things:

    -I use FL for 2 different accounts at the same time, so maybe doing it for 2 accounts takes way more time

    -FL is also set to like 300 photos a day, and unfollow 300 users a day for both accounts

    And my other settings are:

    Follower to following ratio: 0.00
    Follow limit: 10 to 20
    Daily follow limit: 300 to 350
    Delay follow: 45 to 50 seconds
    Follow users who have: 0 to 1500 followings

    So what can I do to get FL to speed up the following process? Cause eventually I want to follow at least 1000 users a day. But it would be impossible at the speed it's currently at!

    Do you have slow proxies?

    I don't use any proxies. But my laptop that I run it on, it's sort of slow.

    How many seconds should I change th delay to, without IG detecting it/possible temp ban?

    20-40 seconds should be fine.

    Hey guys! How do you have followers? Are you looking for them in the followufollowme tag or by accident?

    The problem isn't your delay, its the automation delay under the general settings tab of follow liker. Lower the automation delay.

    Alright so I checked my automation delay. It's currently set to 55 to 60 seconds. Should I set it even lower?

    That is plenty of time to follow enough in a day. Post your account log and other stats. It could be not scraping enough or many other things.

    It could be your source, blacklist, or other 'follow' settings if you are more selective. If you are highly selective or using the wrong source to follow from (one you've used a lot before, or bad followers) it could take some time to weed through them for followliker to find the ones actually worth following. That's not a problem though if its caused by being highly selective - that will cause better followers and increased engagement.
