As the rules of every market dictate, where there’s a demand for a service or a product, someone is there to supply it. When it comes to Instagram, the demand for high follower numbers, sometimes even required by modeling agencies to be considered for a job, created a niche for third-party apps and accounts made for the sole purpose of providing likes and follows to whoever pays for them.
Seems like Instagram is giving users the benefit of doubt and letting everyone who misbehaved suffer only a slight change in numbers. However, the post states that the new measures will be ongoing and repeat offenders will “see their Instagram experience impacted”, leaving to your imagination what might actually happen.
Now is the time to keep an eye on your favorite Instagram accounts to see if they’ll get a sudden drop in followers, exposing their wretched ways!
