    I am trying to figure out if there is any query combination to geo
    target users that comment on a particular users photos.



    So For example hypothetically target all people from NYC who commented on XMUSICLABEL's photos

    What are you asking for is impossible. Theres no location for profiles.
    If you want geo targeted users scrape them from supposed locations.
    Ofc for comments/likes you have to scrape photos.

    Don't think that's possible within Followliker, but you could always find specific location users by scraping the city's hashtag.

    There is a possibility to find out the region where a user mostly resides. You'll need processing power for that as it is not a single account task.

    There is a location query selection in followliker for scraping users. The manual says "?Location? will find users by location. To use this query type, enter the name of the location, city or country in the ?Query? value. (Example: New York, United States)"

    trying toi figure out if this will actually work....and if there is a way to combine queries kind of like the FLC functionality

    You could do it with the API, but it would still take a while to filter such users.

    First would be get all profiles who commented the particular photo, then parse their photos by geolocation and try to match the lat/long within a certain region.

    I would just parse photos by geolocation then match users and you could profile those users to your niche.

    FL has the option. When a user posts a picture and tags a location, FL scrapes that follower if the location they put is in the vicinity of where ever you choose to target.

    Geo based search would definitely be available. The only problem would be to narrow down the searches to a regional level based on geographical locations.
