    okay so instagram has reached 500 million active users. but i wonder how many of those are spam, fake and just many legit pages owned by one person.

    I own and operate a few pages so i wonder what percentage or how many pages are really just owned by us here on BHW

    there are guys on here with hundreds of accounts yet they are operated by one person.

    what do you think?

    I would think the bots and spam users are in the millions but not tens of millions.

    i'd imagine the BHW community has at the very least a few hundred thousand possible a million or more?

    then again with the great instapurges where millions get deleted the number must be very very high

    It will be very difficult to get estimate about , how many of them are being operated by members of BHW.
    Keep it in mind, BHW is just one of the internet marketing forum. There are lots of other forums are there just like blackhatworld

    Out of 500 milion active accounts I'd say between 10 and 200 milions. Avg= 100 milions

    very few than you think. i don't think cpa spam is very much known by most of the world. so i'd say less than 10% of that population was cpa spam. and like less than 25-40% was IM in some sort of way. the rest would be personal/legit accs
