    The last two day whenever I post + tags, I am being flooded with people spam tagging me, and i'm not talking like 4 or 5 photos, i am getting tagged at least 50-120+ times. How is this happening now, did something in the new update allow them to? its kinda funny but ridiculous.

    Is this happening to anyone, I know its effecting a bunch of my friends. Think it happens more when you post a bunch of tags.

    Nothing new here mate, it's been happening since a long time ago, except lately this trend is increasing a lot more and more people doing it, which leads to more users being tagged.

    It's happening everywhere. Basically negseo has been expanded to IG and YT as well. I put up a video of a relative for chrissakes and it got reported for the music, but it had no music. Basically they shoot first and ask later.

    The purpose is simple, Instagram has very strict limits on commenting, following and liking. That limits your growth as well. By mentioning people in comments, you can mention like 5-10 people in 1 comment and use multiple accounts to post on your account's picture, which gives people a notification to view your photo, and possible like/follow you. Just another technique for growing your accounts.
