    I'd like to get a sample set of aggressive FLC settings -- the FLC: function, that is, settings that would most aggressively follow the likers (and maybe commenters) of a particular username (like, say victoria's secret). I have several aged (>1 year) instagram accounts over 10k in size that have done great with manual following and liking and with hosted bots like Instagress. I'm trying to transition to FollowLiker and while I've done great at scraping and analyzing data and preparing lists of large accounts to follow/like likers and commenters I haven't gotten FLC to work at all.

    I know some people have had problems with the FLC function in FollowLiker (well, a lot of people) but can someone post what may be the most aggressive settings known to work (and work recently, if possible, because I know FollowLiker is being continuously updated)? I won't be running this 24/7, I only want to run it for maybe 10 to 30 minutes to watch it work, see some results in my following / follower total, and increment the settings down to a level more suited for more or less continuous automation. That's why I want "aggressive" (the fastest) settings that would work, because I'm not going to be running it that way for long, and because the accounts are fairly large, aged, and have at least been logged into by FollowLiker for scraping purposes for many weeks now.

    don't go for follow unfollow with fL and more ... it will shadow ban your account.

    Your account won't get shadow banned because of Followliker. It will get shadow banned because of the settings you use. Same as with any bot. You got to make sure you set "human" settings.

    FLC does not work as advertised. I don't know of anyone here on BHW that is able to make it work as advertised: Follow Account ABC, Like photo(s) of Account ABC, Comment on 1 photo of Account ABC.

    Everything else works fine.

    Now, it don't matter how old your account is. Instagram will temp ban it if it notices something that you haven't been doing for a while. So, being aggressive will only temp ban your account. You can try upping little by little, until you're temp banned. Then, you'll know what the limit is for that particular account.

    From what I've read here on BHW and elsewhere, the FLC command works (or has worked) for some people, but only with some tricky, interdependent combination of settings, including automation interval (under general settings) selected.

    Some posts indicate the FLC command worked in the past, but it is 'broken' now. If it ever worked for anyone then there must be some sort of formula or algorithm behind that combination, even if it is 'broken' now, but I haven't seen that algorithm explained, anywhere. I've seen sets of settings that supposedly make FLC work, but nothing just describing the algorithm. But that's a question for another thread. :)

    There should be some workaround to automate what colorme described, if I can tell FollowLiker to follow, like, and/or comment a LIST of users. There seems to be more than one way to do that. I'll try to describe a workaround multistep (multiple steps for me, the user) process to do that.

    I mentioned I have done a lot of scraping and have lists of users I'm ready to have FollowLiker work on. With lists like that, I suppose I could set up FollowLiker's modules in some manner to achieve the same effect, even if I have to do it in some sort of partially-manual, multi-step, multi-session process.

    Please comment on the following process I'd like to try:

    In pseudocode:

    Assume I have a list of users whose most recent photos I want to like, and then follow that user.

    For each user in a imported list of users:

    1) First, only have the "scrape user" and "scrape photos" modules enabled. Scrape a list of (for example) the top three photos from the user by importing my list of users into the "Scrape Photo/Video" module with "User's Photo" as the query type for each user, and set the Scrape Photo Limit to 3. Manually stop FollowLiker once it appears to have scraped three photos from each user in the list (which I can calculate by taking the number of users imported into Scrape Photo/Video and multiplying it times the Scrape Photo Limit) otherwise I suppose it will loop back, if continuous automation is selected, and scrape again the top three photos from users in the list once the list is finished)

    2) Second, disable "scrape user" and enable "Follow" and "Like". Follow the users associated with that list of photos, which will be in (or I can import a list at that point into) "Scraped Photos" which is viewable under Advanced Settings.

    3) (optionally) Comment on one of the users's photos (I haven't used and don't plan to use commenting, though)

    4) manually repeat this process with to step 1

    I may be leaving a setting or two out of that list, but if anyone thinks this could work at all, please add suggestions to the list I have above. This may seem cumbersome but it's obviously going to be easier than doing all of this manually.

    Anyway, whatever my settings are I don't think I'm at much risk of being banned in any sense (shadow or otherwise) if I run it for a period of time shorter than manual sessions, and I'm on the same IP address I use to access the account otherwise, like through a proxy in a browser or a proxy on my rooted phone. I suppose FollowLiker looks different to IG than a browser or app, but if the actions are similar -- and I've been aggressive in following and liking, manually, on a browser and on the app, through the same proxy IP, with no bans -- there's no reason I see to ban an account for similar actions done for as short or shorter of a timeframe in FollowLiker.

    Hope you can get it to work. I gave up on trying to achieve that. So, I just let it do what it does. Still a good program.

    I am on the same boat, hope to hear some good news about this. here is what i want to achieve.

    On first account i want to Follow and Like accounts related to some hashtag and also some account followers base. this is using the FLC?

    On the other account i want to Only like photos from people that i already follow and also from people that might follow me.
