    Why is it a bad new? Spam accounts are useless, those changes are okey for marketers imo

    Well they are removing inactive accounts. The first thing who sets up an account on instagram do is following big ass celebs, and found out that Instagram is no fun, delete insta and never uses that account again. No wonder they lose so many accounts... Who would send 20 mill fake accs to instagram profile? Just because someone says it, it doesnt mean that it is right - use ur brain

    that's actually not the bed news more epic news they reduced limits in API to 60-100 requests per hour from 1IP before was 5k-10k per hour
    means all the panels that's out there will be affected with this update along with all the bots users uses to boost them accs. same thing they did in Facebook API same day when drops caused
    I did tho found loophole go around this BS but from what I see everyone else simply shut it down instagram followers services im assuming til they be able to find that loophole ^^

    btw right after this mass cleanings they got attention of all the media out there and Instagram project got estimated worth 35 billion dollar project not bad not bad ^^

    to be honest my opinion they don't really gave a f... about bots or spam in them social networks is all about stocks rate you can see the bounce in FB stacks after this BS they did and is all because of oil prices going down and drugging stock market rates with it and they got to do some kind a epic BS to get attention and raise stocks rate

    Maybe those spam accounts just followed major accounts to look legit? Is this how it's supposed to be..

    Hahaha. I know right. P Diddy.

    I agree. An accurate number of followers is far more productive. Marketers need to know what they are really working with in order to make a profit.

    Hahaha, and now the account is deleted.
