    Seeing as Instagram has gotten extremely strict with there new algorithm , I wanna get a good convo going on what BHW thinks is the new Social Media platform on the "Come Up".

    Instagram was for sure one of the best social media platforms for image based promotion. But as big corporations buy out these companies, they bring their IT staff with them.

    The only thing we can do is get to those new up and coming social media sites and manipulate em early on.

    Anyone in the social media field has had customers ask them if they can boost sites that they may not have heard of but are seeing a possible potential to market them.

    Lets get a good thread going here guys, I'm sure you all have had a new site stewing around in your thoughts for a bit.

    Figure of speech i guess, i have a feeling ads will be in the following feed therefore money will be made. I was directing that at the Like and Follower Boosters mainly

    my photos do great on their own, our band gets around 130 natural likes avarage and good comments not just "awesome pic" type comments.

    I wanted to pick the community brain on what they thought the next "Up and Coming" site would be. Not to focus too much on the title

    Nothing is ever dead, it just means you have to change your tactics. Although what usually happens is, the time it takes for you to actually make money isn't worth it to you anymore. Either way Instagram is far from dead! Its like saying Twitter or Facebook is dead...

    EyeEm is gathering momentum: https://www.eyeem.com As I have just stated, I work in the programming world and have a lot of experience with FB / IG integration, like anything if it becomes too easy to spam or fake aspects of the platform us developers will combat that however big or small the organisation. I am happy to develop a web based bot which if a few of the more experienced users want to guide me in the functionality, this will be more of a proof of concept project to prove it is not dead!! PM me with some details and maybe we can get a spec up and running. Serious IG promoters only please

    I agree Theodore, we still find instagram as one of our strongest sites for promoting and it will probably stay that way.

    I found a way on one of the threads to upload a real video by replacing the file on the phone and people went crazy for that so i suggest everyone who uses instagram to upload pro looking vids.

    OH MY GOD... another "X is dead" thread... can we stop with this bulls***t already?

    let me make it 100% clear, as long as these kind of sites are public they ARE NOT DEAD
    and you can make money with them!

    yes, algorithms change, so you need to adapt, it's evolution baby...

    Hahaha! I think in other way, Indirectly we help us these network to increase their figures. :p

    Why actually Twitter is not strict? We can make hundreds of twitter in 1 hour why? Because they actually want to beat Facebook in terms of number of users :D

    These network knows everything and like they never want to turn off these loopholes else they will not be able to retain in market!

    Biggest Example: Vine is not able to grow because BlackHatters are not able to make their wonders there.

    So in-short: Instagram is not dead and you have to find out the new working way or method!

    you asked for a site to replace INSTAGRAM because it's "DEAD"... this title.. oh my god...

    you could have asked for a replacement without stating this ridiculous claimת
    i mean do you seriously think that instagram is dead (money making with instagram)?
    there are LOTS of people making money with it, difference is they don't use public methods
    because lets face it, if it's public it's going to eventually stop working (or you will need to make adjustment,
    even though it's seems that you just gave up)

    and just so you know other website will change their algorithms as well... and get tougher....

    Nah... superman does good. you are doing well...
    you need to study your grammar, son.

    and of course, your comment contradicts your actual post...
    first it's dead... now you are doing well and you just want to branch out... come on...

    which one is it? :tired:
