Hey guys I think it's quite evident that it's becoming increasingly more difficult to hone particular methods to run up IG accounts. Obviously IG is a massive social media network.. and having the backing of the facebook security team, it's only logical that they will protect their 1 billion dollar investment and seek to build it in a way best fit for them. Although it's obviously great that there is a community that allows for everyone to connect and discuss ways to improve, it could be massively net negative for our overall efforts. It would be naive to think that instagram doesn't utilize all of it's resources, including this exact channel for exploitative discussion, to improve it's security and protect their network from exactly what we are trying to accomplish here. (Hi IG!) Although I can't offer solutions, I just wanted to hear the communities thoughts on this ongoing open discussion we have going here. If you owned IG, wouldn't this be the first place you'd research to refine your companies security? I'd imagine so.. Also, how much do we really benefit from diluting our efforts by inviting amateurs to freely share in the trials and tribulations from aged veterans? I don't mean to contradict myself, as I've gained tons of value from BHW.. but something seems to be off here. It's clear from when I first started following this section that it's become more heavily populated with well documented and clear methods. I assume this is only going to continue in it's trajectory, with people divulging specific strategies that IG can easily then write counter algorithms for. I assume I am not the first person to think about this, and the evolution of information is the natural progression in any high niche market.. but it's seemingly long term net negative for the entire community as a whole. I may be wrong.. Again, I don't have solutions. Just wanted to gage thoughts.
