    Hi guys,

    New to Instagram and want to try a new venture.
    Looking to create an account to see how many followers i can get but just after feedback on something.

    I'm probably going about this all wrong and this will probably sound dumb but heck i am going to ask anyway.

    These accounts that have 50k followers are the pictures original? are they taken and posted by the person who owns the account?
    Whats stopping me from creating an account and going through other accounts and pinetrest and taking the pictures and adding themt o my account?
    Had a look at loads of accounts and there is no way they are original have seen loads over the years here and there.

    most of the picture you see are just reposts of reposts of reposts, so just go ahead.

    But be careful, once your account is getting influential you might want to repost only pictures for which you can give credits, otherwise the owners of the pictures can report your account
