    So, below you will find screenshots of my settings. I don't get if I'm right or not with them.

    What I want to do:
    I want to like 3 picture of users who tagged their picture in a particular location and who follow particular users. For this reason, I'm going to use the FLC feature, that allow me to scrape them and use them to like.

    My settings for scraping users are these:

    So, as you can see I have a list of both Location and User's Followers.
    What I want to do is:

    Go to the first Location (it starts with "Mi"), scrape 3 users and then like them (in the "like module" there is just the "FLC:").

    After liked 3 picture for each of the 3 users it should scrape from the second query, that starts with "Ca"). Again: scrape 3 pictures and like 3 latest pictures of each users who posted the 3 pictures.

    This until we reach the first page, that is starts with "da". Here it should scrape the 3 followers and like 3 of their picture.

    For reference this is the "like" module: http://i.imgur.com/R77ZCmB.gif

    SOOOOOOOO:
    I'm doing it right or not? I mean: I following to correct way to have the shit done or not? I don't get if my logic is following the bot ones or not. From the log I'm very confused.

    Uncheck "Retrieve Existing Followers" in the Task Selection screen.

    @auuuu, it's a very good idea and many of us would like to do it like that. BUT, Follow Liker is not currently allowing what you want to do.

    I tried it a few months back, even wrote to FL Help Desk. It's currently not set up to do location, then followers (or vice-versa), like photos/follow, etc.

    So, the short of it is, you can set it up to like photos of users that tagged a certain city or location, etc.
    OR,
    you can set it up to like photos of users (followers, who liked, who commented, etc),
    BUT,
    not both at the same time.

    So, it's not you, it's Follow Liker. At least, in the near future, we can hope to do it like you want - fingers crossed.

    weblue said that my settings are fine...so maybe they updated it? You should be able to bypass this limit (if it exist) by creating 2 projects, one for locations and one for user's followers, isn't?

    Yes, that is a good option. Have an instance for every separate task (location/user's followers)

    Besides that, is my logic correct?
    If I insert, let's say, 3 location in this format -> FLC:New York, FLC:paris, FLC:Rome it should scrape and like X users of NY, then X users of Paris and finally X users of Rome OR scrape X users from NY, Paris, Rome and then like X pictures? Get the logic behind it it would help me so much :\

    Keep your settings the same. Remove the other Query Type (User's Follower). Pause all but one account. Run it and check the Activity Log to see what happens.
