    Real simple, I have 100 accounts that I want to follow each other, and then like each other's photos on an ongoing basis. Ideally when one user posts a photo, all the accounts should like it within 30 minutes.

    I have been messing around with the settings, and it seems to run for a brief moment and then errors light up like crazy. FL support has not helped.

    What settings would you use?

    Mine were

    *Follow
    *Scrape Photo
    *Like Photo

    I manually dumped the list of usernames involved in the project into the scraped users database, so no need to search for them. I dumped the same list of usernames into Scrape Photos settings to scrape recent photos of all users.

    Follow, Scrape and Like we're all at default settings.

    I say you split that task into two parts
    Part 1
    1) Wherever you have this list of users, compile them into a text or csv file. If you select the csv option, on the 2nd column, add the value "User's Photo" without the quotes. This is by far easier to do

    2) Run FL with the settings to scrape photos & like them. On the screen for photo scraping, right click and import the the csv you created with those users, check the option to scrape top result and set the photo limit to 1. Like settings should have the daily total to be higher than the number of accounts you have.

    Part 2
    3) Go back to the CSV file and replace "User's photo" to "Normal Search" and save that.

    4) Run a different instance of FL with settings to scrape users & follow them. Import the updated CSV & adjust the follow settings to what you need with delays and number of follows to do.

    You only have to run steps 3 & 4 Once. You should keep Step 2 running continuously.

    Also you don't have to use 2 instances of FL to do this. It's just cleaner to the eye to do so.

    If you want it all in one, you have to use Scrape users, Scrape photos, Like, and Follow for it to work properly.
