Instagram Is Removing Fake Followers, Likes and Comments

Instagram is fighting back against automated apps people use to leave spammy comments or follow then unfollow others in hopes of growing their audience.

a link to Instagram’s press release, which promised to “begin removing inauthentic likes, follows and comments from accounts that use third-party apps to boost their popularity.”

we’ve seen accounts use third-party apps to artificially grow their audience. Every day people come to Instagram to have real experiences, including genuine interactions. It is our responsibility to ensure these experiences aren’t disrupted by inauthentic activity. Starting today, we will begin removing inauthentic likes, follows and comments from accounts that use third-party apps to boost their popularity. We’ve built machine learning tools to help identify accounts that use these services and remove the inauthentic activity. This type of behaviour is bad for the community, and third-party apps that generate inauthentic likes follows and comments violate our Community Guidelines and Terms of Use.

Instagram is also hoping to discourage users from ever giving another company the login details to their accounts as this can lead to them being hacked or having their account used to send spam. So if you see Instagram follower accounts drop, it’s not because that profile offended people, but because the followers were fake.

Instagram also said in their press release

Since the early days of Instagram, we have auto-detected and removed fake accounts to protect our community. Today’s update is just another step in keeping Instagram a vibrant community where people connect and share in authentic ways. We’ll have more updates in the coming weeks on additional measures we’re taking to tackle inauthentic activity on Instagram

Now, if you’re looking at the profile of someone who follows you, but whom you don’t follow, you’ll see “Follow Back” instead of “Follow.”

“This has been live on Android for a while but we rolled it out to iOS users in December,” an Instagram representative said.
