Before we start.
This is part two of the THE INSTAGRAM GAME series. You will need this Program called FollowingLike and hopefully you have already read the first part here. Also the free keywords are listed below….If so continue on below!
Lets begin our first startup and simple like module creation.
So after purchased and installation of our Niche software which is called FollowingLike Pro we are now going to run through a simple module. As I mentioned in my previous post the Software FollowingLike has modules and Modules are actually considered GUI bots.
The first thing you will notice after putting your serial in would be how the program talks back to WhiteHatBox license server. The program is going to login and validate you, this is why you will not be able to run multiple computers but as i mentioned by placing it in the VM we can easily move it if anything happens to our PC or Server. So once Followinglike starts we arrive at this screen which looks like a low budget excel sheet but trust me it is powerful if you know how to use it. As you can see there are three tabs. The first is Style. So once Followinglike starts we arrive at this screen which looks like a low budget excel sheet but trust me it is powerful if you know how to use it. As you can see there are three tabs. The first is Style.
In style Tab you can change the aesthetics of the program. Not many options but in the future possibly they will incorporate more schemes, I don’t really use it so let’s skip it.
In the accounts manager is where you are going to add your Instagram profile. You will make a category first. This is great if you want to control multiple accounts from different organizations. This seems redundant at first but when you start running multiple threads for various accounts it will make sense. If you are just running one profile it seems a bit like overkill. Below I added a thought chart on how I see their concept.
The Task manager tab is where we get into putting our modules together and its these modules combined that make our bot.You will have the opportunity to create many modules as you like and have them all run in order or have multiple threads going. I’m going to warn you now if you have a single account I would just run one thread at a time, if you are managing several accounts with different IP’s you should and can run multiple threads.
Our First Category
For this example below I will use the category MythoCo and then inside that I will place my actual MythoCo Instagram account profile, the login and password. Also If I did have a specific IP or Proxy IP address I will add them here. You do not need a IP or Proxy, this is an option for advance users. If you plan on using just one personal account you can leave that blank and the program will just use your home IP.
So select the account category Instagram checkbox, this will be the Instagram Icon checkbox on the left then go above to the tab that has Add (left side, has brown people icons) . Click Add and create category… enter your category name here.
Go back again to the account category and click the triangle which will show the sub icon of your category. Click on your category checkbox (In my case it will be MythoCo) then go over to blue and green single person icon that has Add. This will add the account into your category. Fill out your Instagram username and password and click OK.
Test and sync your account.
As you can see below here, I have added the MythoCo Instagram profile login setting and now we need to see if there are any issues logging in. We will click the start button to the far right which will sync our Instagram account. When the account sync is complete it will fill out its table with values. You can see by this example FollowingLike is currently syncing our MythoCo account and is highlighted yellow and we have 3 pictures, We are following 84 accounts and we have 1857 Followers, the status is still checking but once it completes it should let us know if there are any errors. So by doing this you have added your Instagram profile into your category and tested it to see if sync was possible.
Now add Task!
Once we have successfully added our Instagram account to our category we can now create modules and this is the heart and soul of this program. Click over to the Task(s) Manager.
From here we get a similar interface with the Instagram Icon and checkbox as the Account(s) Manager, except that on the left now is Task List instead of Account category.
This again will feel redundant but we are working with a different tab. This is where we make the functions of our bot. So click the checkbox on the intagram icon in left hand task list. Go to the top Task(s) Manager taskbar and click Add, the Add icon will be on the left and look like a checklist with a green plus.
Once that opens we will be prompted with the Add Task prompt. Add a taskname, again I am just going to use MythoCo but here you can use anything really, in the past I have named them “Likes Vr1” or “Likes working great Vr2” because we are making a like bot first.
Once you click OK the prompt will open up to this below. Do not close it out. This is the Task setting for your module. This is where you will add functions and tweak them out. Once you have your account set up to your category and your first tasked name you will spend most of your time in this location. As you can see here in your Task Setting Dialog box there are two cells. The left will have the task category, in this case instagram, so choose instagram from the drop down list. Now you have loaded the instagram module and tools but you have to right click on the Instagram Module Icon to add them..
Pick Instagram from the drop down list. It will load the Instagram Icon with the Module (right Click here) Then right click on it. There is a process for starting the Modules but you can end it anyway you wish.
You always want to start with Account Module.
Add the Account Module first. Then choose the category that has your Instagram account. As you can see here circled in red it shows my category and then account. Just click both check marks. If you have other categories and user accounts you would be able to choose them all or just one here. You can also fetch your accounts for this module below randomly that’s what that “how to fetch data” means.
The Text Module is next.
Next we are going to add the text, this is where the search keywords are. These can be hashtags or keywords. Do not add the # symbol and always add one value per line. Now you can manually add a keyword but there is a better way. You can import a CSV and simply put that is kind of like an excel sheet with the keywords in each cell. I will show you another simple way to make a keyword list in notepad.
Lets make that list real quick in Notepad.
Don’t worry, I will have a list you can download here and here. I accumulated a bunch of keywords from random websites BUT if you choose to make your won follow the steps below.
Go to Notepad on your VM and open it to a new Notepad. Paste your keywords each giving them their own single line. Very Important: Remove all whitespaces, if whitespaces are left around your keywords all of your searches will fail.
So you can do this, first paste in the words in a single line each. Then go to Edit > Replace. The replace dialog prompt box will show. Now in the Find What filed just space bar once. This will create a blank whitespace so if notepad finds any whitespace it will replace it with what we choose next. In the Replace with put in a single ” and hit replace all. all of your words should now have a ” on the end. you need to go down the list now and add a ” to the front of the word. Ok, essentially what we are trying to do here is make sure there are no white spaces and also to put each word in “quotes”. These “quotes” will create our cells once we save the text document BUT….I have to show you how to save it.
OK so now we have a keyword list and all the keywords are surrounded by “quotes” and the list has no whitespaces within the “quotes” (example of bad –> “keyword “) Then we have to save that list. Click Save as and at the bottom you will see File Name and Save as type. By default the Save as type will be .txt change that by dropping down the box to All Files. Then you can name it something like i did here AllHashTags.csv. Add .csv to your File name. By changing the Save as type you are instructing Notepad to save it as exactly what is in the File name window.
As Promised here are the TXT and CSV version of the most popular Keyword list of 2017. Just click the CSV version download for easy importing into your FollowingLike Software.
Back to FollowingLike, Text Module.
With your keyword and Hashtag list ready as a .csv we can then add it to our module. Below I am in the Text module and have clicked on the One Value Per Line button. This Button will let us import a CSV file, as you can see above is easy to make, and automatically give each keyword its separate cell. If you have an already exported keyword list you can also use this button to re-upload that keyword list. As you can see in the screenshot below I created a Text Module under the Account Module and pressed the One Value per line button. The open dialog box is looking for my CSV file we made, in this case I made another called Sept-All_hashtags_2017 and when I open it the Keywords will be added into the Text Module. Now, I have added about 2000 before and I don’t think there is a limit issue so you can mess around with various sized word list.
About our Keyword list.
OK, as you can see below it was added successfully. So this is where it gets interesting as of now in the future modules you add when searching keywords it will come from this list. Also if you set the text search to delete rows this is also where it will delete them from here. I set the Fetch to Random and I set the How to delete data after fetch and use: to Don’t delete, this way it will just recycle and reuse the keyword list within the program.
Now we search!
OK, so now that we have the Bot foundation. We have the account set up in the program and we have the text and keywords list set up, which is a big part of our bot, now we can mess around and try the other modules. We are making a like bot so lets go look for some pictures to like! Add the Search Photos (Sorry in this image below I have search users, don’t do that, add the one below it search Photos…ok!) We right click and add Module>Search> Search photos.
The SearchPhotos module is added below the others, there is a hierarchy so keep that in mind. Under Account source we are going to choose the 1.Account module from the dropdown, again if you had other accounts listed you can choose another. Under the SearchKeyword we are going to choose the 2.Text we made above with our Keyword list.. in the future you can add other Keywordlist and reference them like this, you can have more then one is what i am trying to say. You will only be allowed to choose a keyword modules from the dropdown list and if you have one you will only see that one but if you have multiple you can choose whatever you like.
The search amount is just that the number of searches against the keyword list you like. If you recall when setting up our keyword list we choose random so here we are really telling the searchphotos modules to seek out 7 random keywords and search for them in Instagram picture hashtags.
Underneath the search amount, which I don’t have a red box around is Timeout… this is the time in milliseconds or seconds (haven’t actually looked into it) Well basically its a time amount that lets the Followinglike load the picture… It’s default setting is 240 but i set mine to 300 or 400 just so i give the program a little time to load, this helps get the picture I want to load some extra time.
under Search Type they recently added Fuzzy search andI use this quite often as it sort of gets close to the keywords in my search I was looking for. This will give you some wiggle room in your keyword search. So accurate I assume here will just search the keywords as they are whereas a fuzzy search will find partial words in keywords, again I am assuming here.
OK, the next part is how to deal with our search so we are going to fetch the search results by choosing a random row,meaning that this searchphotos module will use our keyword list and go out into Instagram like a human and then bring back a list of links of pictures that match the keyword hashtags I was looking for it will actually save the links into a table, like excel, and then it ask well what do we do with that table when we are done? so here I have chosen to go out and look for 7 keywords bring it to a table and don’t delete any of them because I will use them all in the next module we add. Make sense…eh this is what you get when I write a tutorial at 4am….lol
So now that the searchphotos modle has done its job and and fetched me links of photos that matched my keyword list, by using hashtags what do we do with it? We use it in the next module, see how this works the foundation modules are feeding the functions of other modules, you can get creative with this. Ok, back on topic we are going to take that fetched data that is sitting in the table in our search photo module and we are going to apply a function of liking the pictures. We are going to let the program do this in a humanistic way.
We add the Like module
We now get the data from searchphotos under the Post Source. Again we reference the 1. Account (currently our only account) under Account Source, The timeout is set to 300 to go back to the Instagram image from the previous fetched table and again I always choose Random Row and don’t delete. Now what we have done is piped info from the Text module all the way here and FollwoingLike will keep this data internally inside a table inside a database within its program but as far as you are concerned you just want to search and like for now. I am just telling you this to see how you can expand its capabilities if you wish, the data is saved until you purge it and if you don’t want to save any of it you can choose delete after fetched.
Ok, so up to this point this tutorial is turning into a disaster. Writing it at 4am and getting off track but not to fear! I just need some sleep and also so dose our bot. So lets add the Sleep module. Here is the deal… you have plenty of time to like people pictures, if your bot was human wouldn’t you give it a rest like a human? So lets randomize it up a bit. In this screenshot below I choose Min time 1 min to 3 minutes and the Sleep module will choose in seconds a random time somewhere in that range. This is what I propose if you do make more, stagger them, separate your action modules with a sleep one like a divider and randomly choose times that are in the 2-15 or 2-30 minute range. Use the sleep module to divided the task up, ooh now you are catching on. See after this sleep module whats stopping you from adding another searchphotos module after? and then another like module referencing the first account and second text modules? Absolutely nothing.. In this section you can stack on more and more while referencing your foundation modules. Hopefully you get where I am going with this.
lets run our Bot.
Ok, we are set and all these modules have come together to create our bot, the combination of modules is what makes the bot. So lets test it.Usually on the first test I run just once. If it is successful I do a loop run and just let it go until i choose to stop it. This screenshot below should be self explanatory.
So here you can see it running. On the left is a timer circle and the tables of our module in action will turn from white to green, the table that is currently active will always be yellow.
Ok so what happens if all you see is red tables? well Red means failure, so check your account again from the accounts manger and if you are able to sync then its something within your modules. I would check the keywords portion first as this is probably going to be the most problematic area, keywords importing and keyword whitespace was always a issues when I first started this program
Once you get your bot where you want it, working properly and you like the results. go to setting and choose to turn off the debug window and disable images and advertisement (kind of odd they add advertisement to a product your purchase but oh well…lol) I’m sure that will go away eventually.
A lot of the power is what you cant see in this program, the developers have made humanistic behavior as a bot so this can be very powerful if you know how to use it.
OK going to Sleep, I will add they missing Keyword list and fix this post up better this week. if you like this and want to repay me I would sure like YouTube followers. Click on my link to my YouTube channel and subscribe. I am putting together some cool videos soon. I have some DC spy neighborhood history videos that I am working that are really neat and then some urban exploring videos and hacking tutorials soon too. Thanks.
