    So I run a couple of legitimate pages I run an art community with 200,000 followers and I also run a private page for my furniture shop.

    Today every single one of my videos as far back is one year have dropped to ZERO views!! The likes are still showing which I average between 30k and 40k views per video.

    This has also happened on my personal account and my throw away accounts that I use for makeup and just bs.

    Ive boosted through facebook for my art community alot recently, but i only use organic and cross platform advertising (Pinterest, Fancy, & Polyvore) for my shop page. All of the campaigns and advertisements that I've legitimately paid for have also lost every single View.

    Does anyone know what's happened to Instagram if there are possibly doing an update does anybody have any knowledge as to whether or not those views will return or did Instagram just ruin all of the hard work I've done for the past few years?

    I've noticed it too, mostly a major bug, you just can't see the number if views but videos are still going viral. Sometimes you can see video views via browser sometimes u can't

    Damn I really hope so.. I'll be pissed as shit if they do fuck all about it you know

    I guess it's a slippery slope either way but when they take your money and tell you that they're going to provide you a service and then it all just vanishes it's pretty ridiculous.

    When the videos go viral you can not see the number of views.

    Up until till today that has not been my experience.. it's not that you can't see the number of views it's that the number of use literally says zero when yesterday it said 30,000 or 40,000..

    I paid Facebook 32$ to boost that post through Instagram.. and I don't think that Facebook is going to refund my ad spend

    Its gotta be something pretty major, because @tammyhembrow even has 6.8m followers and her videos all say 0.

    I was just curious if it was broken for good

    There is some major fflying things going on at the moment, there is 0 traffic to my landing page and into and out of it, and I got sales. WTF someone is doing something and the Internet as a hole is just shutting up. My 1st thot, eh update, but no, 0, nada, no traffic, and sales. Did some bots purchased my merc? If by any chance @mitussj you find any update please let us know. If not, fk it, make money with no traffic, see if I care.

    Yes it is still happening. Half of my views were removed yesterday, they never came back. But the views weren't botted so I have no clue what happened.

    @/hellrete yep, my site visits actually went up too, threefold. Ironically, my site isn't mentioned in the post. Just in my bio. Strange.
