    Not really sure where this "14th of Dec" is coming from, but I've been seeing quite a few people reporting a pretty large follow loss as of today. Been f5ing here to see if what I've seen are just coincidental isolated incidents, or if the hammers are starting.

    Pretty interesting. I wonder how exactly they will be detecting fake likes in particular. I'm sure fake followers are pretty easy to weed out, but likes?

    Instagram is really stepping up their game regarding sanitizing their platform. This is scary for botters

    I think Instagram is on its way down since fb took over shoving ads on peoples faces in every possible way.....from stories to posts. Its matter of time until users stop engaging slowly like they did with facebook and jump ship to another less cluttered platform. Im not saying its going to happen tomorrow but it seems like its cluttered with too many ads for average ppl to handle. I hope not and FB comes to their senses soon.

    Hopefully this is not the start of the end :(

    Really dig IG, but i know there's gonna be other's way to exploit it if it ever comes down to it, hopefully, it's not too time-consuming figuring it out.

    Or perhaps Facebook learnt from their mistakes? I mean, Facebook's issue was that they limited the overall reach. Pay to play causing a massive decrease on engagement. But, Facebook has (yet) not done this with Instagram. And I do not believe they will. Instagram is Facebook's key business - the business unit with most potential. Facebook is not going to mess up their root of existence. People are so worried about the future of Instagram marketing. But the thing is, if you have built your account in a professionally and ethically sound way, you will be good. I have heard so much about engagement decreases lately, but it all depends on the quality of your account. Of course, if you rely on botting, you are set up to fail over time.

    Instagram has most likely gathered a lot of data from both SMM panels, engagement groups, and the like, to feed their machine learning to protect the platform against botting in the future. And yes, botting today can be considered to perform "human-like" interaction, but the thing is, it is not. And, Instagram has systems to detect these kinds of patterns. It is naïve to think that they do not know what is going on. Therefore, my theory is that Instagram is taking its strike now, because the feeding process has now been strong enough to make the move.

    So what is my point? If you take the fast track, you will have a fast exit. Instead, build long-term and sustainable accounts. You will make much more money and gain a much greater network.

    All of my automation is working nicely so far, no new blocks. Hope this continues.
