    I have followliker for myself building a few IG accounts up, and one of my friends decided to follow me and hop on the IG train. He made an account and I offered to hook it up to FL for him to help it grow until he can get shirts made to start selling. That was a little more then a week ago, and he managed to get 900+ followers in that amount of time, be he also let those 900 followers go to his head as he started becoming kind of a dick.

    Ex: Posts to facebook talking about how everyone wants to be in his business and he thinks its hilarious, that it requires a lot of hard work and really just the way it came off was ridiculous.

    Well, I decided I wanted to see how much 'hard' work he was putting in so I shut off FL yesterday and he's only got one follower since.. lol. He also got a website up and instead of asking for my help he got one of his friends to put something together that looks like I traveled back to the year 2000. It's not even mobile / tablet ready. smh

    Should I charge him if he wants to keep running his account on my FL, and if so how much? I've only known him since Sept so it's not like were close friends, but I work with the kid so I gotta see him pretty often. His attitude over the last week really killed it for me, plus I don't want to help someone else build an IG empire with my bot building 80% of his following...

    I personally wouldn't let anyone use my FL. Not for free, not for money. Be careful with your IP address (server or home IP, where FL is running) if his account is not on a different proxy. He may do something stupid and all of the accounts on that IP would get banned. Too risky imo.

    I would not do that if i was you.. Followliker is an expensive progam. Maybe there goes something wrong and you both cant use it anymore.

    The risk is to high to do that.
    I wouldn't do that.

    I'd run the bot for him at cost or profit (your choice) and charge him for your time he wasted.

    It sounds like your "friend" is taking advantage of your kindness. Definitely charge him or let him go it alone, unless he offers to cut you in on his project. Seeing how he didn't do that already it seems you will have issues dealing with him. So charge him or tell him to kick rocks.

    Give a man a fish, and he will eat for a day.. Teach him how to fish, and he will eat for the rest of his life..

    Tell him that if he is willing to learn, you can teach him. But don't just hand it to him.. If he is willing to work for it, it is worth it sharing the good strategies etc, but before you know it you will be handing out your settings, programs and strategies to everybody who wants to ride your success.

    If he is serious, then he will purchase it himself, single license is 47$ only.. Also, they will blame you if it goes wrong, because you told them what to do ;)

    It's too risky on your end. Either charge him (I don't recommend this) or tell him to buy the program himself.

    A friend isn't worth the same as a bot. OP, you need to figure out how important your relationship with him really is.

    Personality is everything. If he's a dick, f* him. Only help people who deserve it.
    Don't even charge him for using your FL, just let him figure it out himself.

    This is not a friend, is a dic head. Leave him alone. That's all.

    Give him the link to buy it, tell that FL's support asked you to stop change the account since is a violation on the TOS and say good luck with him. Go with people who can give you something back.

    I would do a partnership with the guy and tell him he has to pay me $xxxx amount for me to help market his stuff and get it out there.

    Don't let him use it. Simple.

    You should never mix friends with business in my opinion unless you can 100% trust them (which in this case it seems as though you can't). Tell him you made more accounts and can't fit his account on your IP anymore as there is a maximum limit.

    Then direct him to blackhatworld. If he want's to put the same time and effort into learning how to game IG then he deserves success but judging by how his personality sounds, I don't think that will be the case.
