    i've always wondered how FL follows when i have multiple entries. for example, i follow followers of A, B, C. is it going to follow A's followers until the list exhausts?

    today i tried scraping photos with multiple entries. what i found is that i scrapes ONLY the 1st one! in other words, it will only follow A's followers? it will move to B's followers only when A's list runs out?

    that's no good, isn't it? i dont want to follow deep down the list because they are probably mostly dead. you guys dont have problems with that?

    If you want them fresh, follow recent only.
    And i don't believe it goes like that, i think it goes by taking turns.
    For the photos scraping, did you give it enough time to scrap from other source too? Or you just ran it in short time for it to only do the 1st entry?

    how do i follow recent only?

    for scraping, i scrape 500 and it still doesnt go to the 2nd. i cannot manually go through 1000s of photos, i'll go crazy before i finish. i am kind of afraid to stop and start so often. do you know if FL login-in/out every time i start/stop?
