    I'm currently just running followliker for one account and from my personal computer. This means that it only runs while the computer is on and I also have the settings pretty conservative. I want my activities to appear as natural as possible. It is working well for me but does anyone see a downside to this? Am I better off running it on a server 24/7? Again, I'm happy with the current growth of my account and definitely don't want to push any boundaries with it. Any advice is appreciated.

    I guess I should add the reason I'm asking. While I"m ok with the results they could always be better and I wonder if I need to look at another approach than running it on my personal computer. I'm very new to followliker and just want opinions.

    It should be ok running it on your own computer as long as you set FL to do its actions during the time you have your computer on. I'm running FL on my laptop 24/7 and I'm happy going this route, more control over things.

    Depends on if you need your PC for other things or if you can leave it on 24/7. In my case, I'd rather choose a VPS as I hate having my PC running 24/7. If it's working fine for you atm, stay with it. : )

    You should be able to use aggressive settings on FL if you are not using it 24/7 I guess

    The gain in results will be the same if you are running on this computer or another. Run it on a different pc if you do not want to leave your pc on 24/7.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I'll stick with it for now. Just wasn't sure if there was some benefit to avoiding bans if using a vps.

    Basically default settings for now and only doing follows. Following the followers of a few of the biggest accounts in my niche. Following a max of 400-500 / day (although having trouble at the moment, details in another thread).
