    So Pinterest is pretty much spammed to death with bots, Do you think Instagram will go down the same way?

    P.S - I'm not saying you can't make money from IG.

    We are all social media whores here....we jump on the bandwagon when things get hot and move on to the next one when it cools down. Instagram is already on the decline....we are just waiting for the next thing

    Some of the biggest earners in Pinterest are the ones still doing it now. Often challenges put in place by a network are actually opportunities. Those who hang on to the bronco will eventually tame it.

    Well, there's nothing gonna be like THE END for anything! You know there are people who still make money from orkut :) and mySpace!

    It's methods which play big role.

    Look at facebook, people are still earning from it.

    The harder it becomes, the more people will give up, and a few top guys will keep earning from it.

    Very True ... and for those that stick to it, good money is in the aftermath sometimes. I know several guys STILL banking hard with pinterest.

    Instagram is a fad, it will go down because people will get bored by it, not because of spam..

    yeah, its on end. they stooped managing their manual security, i have seen they didn't did any major update from last 20 days and they will not do until MASS SPAMMERS (here i'm talking about those who spam for hours and get SINGLE PENNY and call them as BIGGEST EARNERS) will go saturated with they spam.
    MASS SPAMMERS killed Pinterest, Now they pointed to Instagram, i don't even imagine that they (MASS SPAMMERS) will give a change for any new network to come and establish

    MY ADVISE: stop spamming for pennies, you'll not even make those PENNY in next 2-3 months.

    They will need to continue to innovate and add features to keep interest.

    http://quantcast.com/instagram.com

    Will be interest to see if they can maintain recent growth spikes.

    It will probably be popular for few more months, but I doubt they'll stay where they're now even if they add some new features..
    Look at facebook (which is way bigger brand and broader niche), they're adding new stuff now more than ever, but they are still sinking because people got bored by it.

    I actually think its going to keep growing a little bit more, take this from a high schooler, and the only ppl that use instagram our younger generations. Everyone I know uses instagram, and twitter daily. Facebook is def out but instagram is in full force for awhile I think.

    Not a chance mate. This is the third year I've been living off of Twitter with the same method I've always used. And it has been spammed to death more than any other social network. Like some dudes said above, it's your method, not the platform.

    Maybe, I have seen a lot more spam on Instagrams the last weeks. If they don't manage to do something they will end up as Pinterest for sure.
