Many accounts aiming to gain paid relationships with brands to deliver sponsored posts will use third-party apps to ramp up fake likes, follows and comments so that they can position themselves as an influencer.
You may see Instagram follow accounts start to drop in the coming days, and this is why. The statement issued by the photo & video sharing platform did not name specific apps that some users employ to boost their numbers of followers, though this type of technology can be found through the likes of Skweezer, Incentafan, Mr. Insta, Boostgram, and Turbo Like for Instagram.
Instagram is using self-improving software programs to help identify accounts that use such apps and purge products of inauthentic activity, which violates terms of service at the service. Instagram explained today that some users unknowingly give account access to these third-parties, which then use those profiles to post fake likes and comments. The owners of the flagged accounts will be alerted of the deletion of all fake likes, follows, and comments. There's also a vague warning that accounts which continue to use third-party apps to grow their audience in this manner "may see their Instagram experience impacted". "We're removing activity like new followers from these apps to protect our community from inauthentic activity". We should all be encouraged by these steps from Instagram to identify and address this type of activity", said Weed, "Instagram is one of the most popular social networks worldwide, and I very much support it taking action and removing inauthentic activity from its platform. Today's update is just another step in keeping Instagram a vibrant community where people connect and share in authentic ways.
