    I wonder if they are deleting some fake accounts or just limit the growth?

    Yes, bots are getting hammered. Or they are using the same fake follower provider and all of them forgot to pay him at the exact same time. I think it's the first option - bots.

    So, this tells me that soon we'll get another Instagram harvest, like in September of 2016. I saw many accounts lose up to 30% of their followers.

    I thought it was just me. Last couple of days have been crazy - 1000 day to a straight drop of 400-500 per day on a 200K account with good engagement. Less engagement too. I just hope it goes back to normal soon.

    I don't think it will end anytime soon. MP users are stopping (bots) as their accounts/licenses are coming to an end, and now Instagram is harvesting again (more bots). What's good is that what will remain will most likely be real human accounts. Although, getting rid of 1/2 of Instagram bots, will be difficult.

    Hey, that reminds me of those selling 100K accounts for $10K-$20K. I saw some going for less than $500. Soon, they'll end up at around $100 per 100K.

    I've actually been interested in buying a large 100-200k account for a while instead of growing 15-30k accounts, where can I go to buy them?

    Also, in the fitness niche, how much money is one generally making from shoutouts on a 100k or 200k account?

    Pricing will increase with this move of ig, since growing accounts will be getting even tougher.

    Disagree. As the organic reach will be controlled from here on. The only way forward to get to your follower is to pay facebook. It is cheap to advertise on facebook anyway. Money better spent advertising than on buying accounts/ bots especially after all these updates.

    Correct. That's my thinking too.
    Having accounts with fakes will only get you 2 things. 1. Non ending loss in followers, 2. Decreased engagement.
    Both of the above are account killers.

    Just like buying shouts is becoming worthless, fake accounts are not too far behind in value.

    not everyone knows how to use fb ads and even if you do, it will be lot costlier if you are not experienced. Ig is killing bots so investing in bots for a newbie would be really bad experience. only way for legit growth is good content and dm likes or powerlikes, i'm not talking about fakes and hence the cost should go up

    My be they are hammering the fake accounts or deleting the old accounts that is not active for so long. one thing for sure, your loyal fans are still there and they will grow which the only thing that you need. Which one will you choose 100m followers that is not supporting your new posts or 50k followers that are very supportive to your new posts.

    You right but i think what you said is general. What happennig since few days (Suspended many accoujts dur to ip change and deleting accounts by mistakes, more ban on likes, etc) all is indication of a stupid behavior, so what number is telling us is a less popularity of instagram. look at @ instagram account 25k drop every day, this was not case since years they were growing 10k+ aday.. so 25k drop a day all is fake haha , where are they new commers?? actually the real comers are few compared to fake... That is the point.. Instagram you deserve that .. eat it now.... it is very delicious taste .. the taste of going down... people dont like your rules any more .... let us go snap chatting ... or .. to tweet ...

    How do fake followers decrease engagement? Do they decrease actual organic followers engagement? Lets say I have 20k followers. If I buy 20k fake followers on top of that my engagement % will be lower because I now have 40k followers but would it be even lower than when I only had 20k real followers? I never understood that. Lots of competitor brand accounts in my niche have got 100k+ followers with similar engagement as mine which looks a lot better than 15k followers when it comes to social proof = more purchases.

    Looks like a purge on bots and fake accounts to me. I have some older accounts with fake followers that have been hit but more recent client accounts that are all natural (real) followers are fine.

    with crazy minds @ instagram i don't think so, you have to expect everything to happen at no prior notice . owners power .
