    Hi, if you remember a few months ago a lot of fake account have been banned and a lot of instagram profiles lost thousands and thousands of followers.
    My question is:
    Is instagram continuosly banning fake account or they will do another huge ban wawe soon?
    I'm trying to build my account using 70% real 30% fake account and i don't want to lose a lot of followers in one day destroying my reputation

    My opinion is you should only use fake followers in the beginning to be more attractive as an account..Then it's not worth it..especially coz your likes/followers ratio will be low if you keep adding fake followers

    they're purging continuously and in waves too and despite all that, (the majority of) your fake followers can survive both or neither
    when there will be the next wave? i mean we're pretty damn good and all, but nobody is a wizard here except pewep, so i don't think that you will ever get an exact answer to this question

    i guess you can call anything a wave because you can always do a fourier analysis on a white noise.

    i have been 'following' an account that has the exact same niche as me.
    i spend 4 months every day manually (unrealistic persistence for me) just to get 12k followers. this guy came out of nowhere with 25k followers and 1500 likes. in a couple weeks, he now has 75k followers while staying at 1500 likes. (he buys followers also 'persistently.' ha) i would guess his followers are 99% fake.

    it would be funny if he sells shoutout while i dont..

    he is still around. so i guess the 'wave' is pretty long.

    Yeah, huge wave went out yesterday. Talk about bad timing for the people who recently made some

    Looks like a continuous process with some peaks from time to time. I'm not sure but are all fake accounts getting banned? I doubt it so any way you are not loosing all of them especially if you go for daily following/unfollowing business.
    At the the end the real followers are who count so I guess any account should strive to have the largest possible percentage of them.
