Instagram Puts Stop to Fake Followers, Comments and Likes

In an attempt to put an end to automated apps that help users artificially grow their followers, Instagram is sending a warning to those users to change their password and cut ties with the inauthentic follows. Several techniques used to give the illusion that audiences are larger than they actually are include fake likes and comments, and following then unfollowing others in an attempt to get a “follow back.”

Utilizing a machine learning tool, Instagram will begin identifying accounts that use these third-party apps, which directly violates its Community Guidelines and Terms of Use.
