Photo-sharing application, Instagram is taking measures to set boundaries for inauthentic activity on its platform.
The company recently observed the increase in the number of accounts using third-party apps to grow the audiences artificially. Instagram announced it will be removing Likes, Fake Followers, and Comments from the accounts that generated by Third-Party apps to increase their fame.
Instagram expressed that,
“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.”
Expelling inauthentic activity is not just a one-and-done occurrence. Instagram takes just one measure to reduce the inauthentic activity, and updates on the additional measures will be publicized in the coming weeks.
