    today i took some time to review the activities on one of my instagram accounts i use to test followliker on and noticed that some photos it liked are getting multiple comments. one photo had comments from 4 days ago, 3 days go, 4 hours earlier today and 25 mins ago. actually found quite a lot of photos that had similar issues. then i found that is also happening to my other accounts i currently have in followerliker.

    fix attempt #1 - i tried to fix the problem by deleting scraped users and scraped photos, but that didnt seem to work because an hour after doing so, i found another photo that had 2 comments today, one at 10am and another one after the "fix".

    fix attempt #2 - optimized followerliker data, quit followliker, cleaned temp windows files, and restarted machine. restarted followliker and started followliker activities. 2 hours later i found the same thing happening, again. found 3 photos with multiple comments.

    i found these incidents by checking 'thank yous' by accounts who received comments from my me. then i went and checked "posts youve liked" in the instagram app and found many more of these incidents. im soooo embarrassed and scared!!! thank god these are only my test accounts.

    also, i guess im lucky my accounts havent been banned yet by the instagods. also lucky i caught it pretty early. ive only been testing followliker for about 3 weeks and was about to start using it for my projects today when i caught this. whew! cant imagine this happening to my real accounts. so i guess im gonna continue testing before implementing followliker to my current projects.

    as for my settings, i scrape for users and photos using several hashtags and only top results. i follow, unfollow, like and comment same day and shuffle tasks. i also have 'comment on a users photo once' checked. what am i doing wrong?

    for the moment im not commenting in any of my test accounts until this issue is resolved. im gonna miss those extra followers i get through comments. sux!

    please help, share if you have experienced this. i really really liked followliker instagram until this discovery. if you have any suggestions, tips or whatnot please... ill try anything.

    thanks in advance!

    I just stopped commenting. I wasn't getting much followers from it anyway and it had a huge risk IMO since a couple of my other accounts got banned due to bad commenting settings

    Please raise this concern on the CONCERN PERSON! So they could fix this issue.
    I dont have any idea yet with this because i am not commenting on posts. I am
    planning to use this feature when i have 50k followers and with this issue il think
    about it (commenting).

    I am grateful on this info. I hope they will fix it! thanks

    Contact the helpdesk on Followliker. But FL has many weird bugs. I did follow-like-comment, and it would like 20 photos per follower even though I set the range from 1-3. It would do that until it hit the daily maximum of 300. It was very annoying.

    yes, thanks guys. i did bring it up to followliker helpdesk, but havent heard from them yet, hope they get back to me soon because this is pretty annoying. is there a followliker customer support thread in BHW? that would help a lot i think. and yes i discovered pretty early also that FLC dont work as well as advertised especially if youre scraping using hashtags.

    but heres an update to my issue and i think i might have fixed it.. but its to early to say. heres what i did. hope this helps others.

    1. cleared all session cookies (file>clear>all session cookies)
    2. cleared all scraped users (file>clear>all scraped users)
    3. cleared all scraped photos (file>clear>all scraped photos)
    4. optimized data (help>optimize data>rebuild project)
    5. restarted followliker app

    i will continue to use comments as it helps somewhat in gaining more followers and with engagement. i wish theres a log of commented photos just like 'liked photos', this would make monitoring activities much easier. but i will continue to monitor followliker and instagram activities and hope the issue dont reoccur.

    thanks guys!
