How to access the Like Tool
You can use the Like tool for Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr and Google Plus. To start the Like tool, go to Tools page, click the name of the account where you want to run the tool or click the More Tools option then click on the Like tab.
Note: It is ‘Favorite’ tab for Twitter and for Facebook, it’s ‘Comment and Like’.
Just like any other tool, you need to setup the configuration that will regulate the actions of the particular tool through the Settings tab. While we all want to do random acts of kindness and spread the love, avoid being a ‘Like-happy’, do not use too aggressive settings, keep it safe and very human.
In the Settings tab, there are 3 sections: Run Timers, Like limits (both sections on the Settings tab is similar to each social network where the Like tool is available) and Filter (could be Post or Tweet filter)
- This is the interval that the Like tool will wait before a new operation begins
- How many posts will be liked per operation
- You can set a random sleep time and allow the tool to rest for some minutes before it will begin a new operation
- In between time of the day when the like tool will execute actions
- Maximum likes to be executed per day; each day that the tool is running, Jarvee will pick a random number between the maximum X-Y you’ve indicated and will use that as the limit for that day
- You can choose to keep a maximum number of likes and star unliking the old ones; this option is limited to the likes executed by JARVEE. However, if you want to include those that you liked prior to adding the account in JARVEE, you can import them in the Like Results tab as seen below.
Note: Filters – are the conditions that JARVEE will check before liking a particular post or tweet. If the post or tweet failed any of the filters you’ve setup, it would not be liked. All the

Post Filters (Google Plus, Tumblr, Linkedin)
