    I run FL on my own laptop. If you can afford a VPS, go for it so you can run it 24/7 and will be able to access it anywhere.

    I use my own computer for Followliker.

    Why pay for a VPS when I've got a perfectly usable laptop which is connected to the Internet 90% of the day anyway? The 24/7 uptime of a VPS has no value to me because I set FL to "sleep" when I do to stay under IG's radar.

    I guess if you have thousands of accounts and are rotating their time on/off, then maybe a VPS is needed.

    But otherwise just run it on your computer.

    My question is rather, why not use a VPS, you can get one free for a year through Amazon that is good enough to run a few accounts.

    I'm thinking about the same, but I'm completely new to this VPS stuff. I'm thinking about running 3 php scripts which like, follow, unfollow etc. will i break the traffic limits, i read i have to pay if i get over 1gb per month. Again i have zero experience sorry if this is a stupid question :D

    VPS, atleast for me. I don't want to have a computer running 247 as I only have my laptop. Plus, it depends on how many accounts. I run hundreds of accounts so my laptop can't handle that. If you have a few accounts, your own computer is fine (unless you have a powerful computer of course).
