    Hi, I see daily threads with people asking about FL settings, that it isn't working well for them etc...

    I would like to remind you that it might not be your settings, but the source you're scraping from. A lot in social media is faked, if you're a visitor of this website you probably know you can buy pretty much anything social media related. I've done a lot of experiments and a lot of photos on the popular page have huge amounts of fake likes.

    So keep this in mind next time you're browsing instagram for a fresh source of photos or users to scrape. You should really dig deep and see if the page you are scraping from is legit. Following fake users is a huge waste of time!

    What works best for me is finding somewhat newly uploaded photos (let's say 1-3 hours) within or close to my niche, with a lot of comments. I then try and see if the comments look fake or spammy. If they look real, I will follow users who commented on the picture I found. This has given me the best followback% by far. The best thing is that if you found a huge page that gets a lot of comments on each upload, you can milk the page for a long time.

    Please keep in mind all niches are different so this might differ from your research and experiments.

    This is a much larger problem, I've ran bots on instagram for 5 months straight now and never had my daily stats slashed on every account like this
