    Came here precisely to ask that. Auto liking not working across all my accounts. I don't even do follow/unfollow or commenting, just liking...

    I think it's mainly going to affect programs like Jarvee because it's very easy to tell it's doing bot like actions.

    Instagram has been blocking and banning bots and botted accounts. Two years later there are millions more of these such accounts. People learn how to do it the right way, or risk losing them.
    Same with likes and engagement. AI can only go so far. I can still manually detect a botted account and botted comments. ie. For example in a comment a human will look at many of the images on the account. Are they from the same person? Do they have a normal name? As to the comment does it refer specifically to the image (red dress, blonde hair, black sunglasses, view of the church, etc? Emoji, emoji great post - just won't do it.

    Many accounts will be banned. Those that create them will learn and build better, or get out of the way for those that can.

    This is the pandora's box they've just opened up. So what's to stop people from sending likes/followers to an account they don't like and repeatedly doing it to get the account banned? The indirect corporate/influencer warfare they are about to unleash, they probably havn't thought through. AI maybe good but humans always find a way to use even the AI to their advantage. I think this is a dumb move to go this route by insta. who know's maybe thats why the original founders left in sept they knew what was coming.

    Judging from Instagram's blog post this news article is referring to, they are NOT referring to likes and follows bought from panels. They are talking about users giving their login information to 3rd party servicers who provide likes and follows. Presumably this is going to affect those who use automation software like Jarvee and GMT2

    some panel owners are posting a message about this
    the message that appear, is for users that are abusing exchange like apps

    ig is taking those down, their pattern is easy to catch

    once they see a pattern, you have a mass ban, this happen from time to time
    so its not something new

    They slowed down the process, there is no way to subscribe and put likes, but no warnings with activity do not get, just can not perform actions

    Today tried to increase the number of likes
    after half an hour gives an error, can't log in my account. Then after 15 minutes it worked again, the likes appear. I begin to increase the number of likes again, the story repeats itself, only then all the likes are gone.

    Looks like a really hard cleaning has started

    There are platforms that require your login information to provide "increase your likes and follows" ... at the end of the day, it's nothing new.. they've been combating automation and fake followers, and likes. If it has you worried, then simply stop like all the rest of the people that are nervous about the article.

    Them making an announcement as such is certainly new, and to me reflects Facebook's growing realization that they seriously need to regulate their platforms as the Russia investigation and bad publicity continues to clamp down on them harder and harder, lest the government step in and decide they are a utility requiring regulation (which they should be IMO). Yes, you are correct to say they've always been combating automation/fake followers, but I only see their attention to this issue growing as Facebook's valuation continues to tank lower and lower

    Maybe just another scare tactic article by insta now that they are pushing their ads on every post.

    They've made annoucnements in the past regarding actions to throttle bots and spam, but yeah they've never made this exact announcement. But at the end of the day, one shouldnt let a public announcement be enough to scare them into discontinuing what they were doing... just make a mental note, and keep it pushing. It's the same when they make a major change in the algorithm and some people experience a mass ban, or mass pv... its no need to start screaming "instagram automation is over" "what are we going to do now" "enjoy it while you can, because this is the end" ... its like, get a grip(and im not talking to you personally, im saying in general). As with any platform, their will always be a fight against automation and spam, you just adapt with the constant changes and keep doing you. If such minor changes and setbacks are enough to kick a person into a frenzy, then maybe BH promotion isn't suitable for said person and they should look into SEO. As this comes with the territory.
