    Yo!

    One of my pages has 440k followers at the moment and not long ago I found new form of spam.
    This is how it looks like:

    It's really the most f*cking annoying thing that I had on this page since the beginning.
    Is there any change to fight it or is it just the price of being such a huge page and there's no way to get rid of it?
    I tried to report spam and delete it manually but it obviously doesn't help.

    You can write a script that deletes comments with certain characters as they come up.

    if you're using hashtags, try to avoid popular hashtags. If you ain't using hashtags and they just focused on your account, delete them manually, they end up being banned.

    Nice? Really? What do those idiots want to make from it? I highly doubt there's anyone clicking on those mentions they write. It's just stupid.

    They annoy me to death, too! But I just delete them if I see them, those accounts will eventually get banned anyway.

    I have the same problem, once they focus your account you get that on every new picture. Just delete their comments

    Alternatively you could use a bot to scan new comments for a pattern and report them as spam immediately.

    I've seen people getting those messages even without hashtags.

    I guess sometimes they might be targeting by name if you have a nice ammount of followers.

    I would just ignore them honestly, sooner or later they will get banned anyway
