Losing Instagram followers today? Here's why

Instagram users report massive decline in followers

Instagram users woke up today to discover that many had lost followers overnight. However, major Instagram personalities like Selena Gomez lost nearly 2 million and Ariana Grande lost nearly 3 million.

Scarlet Moffat, star of Gogglebox, tweeted: "Why is Instagram just casually knocking 200,000 followers from everyone?'"

This is because Instagram have deleted millions of accounts, which they believe to be inauthentic or "bots". We're working quickly to fix this'.

'We're taking a number of steps to limit this kind of unwelcome behaviour. "Accounts that use these types of apps share their username and password, which is sometimes used to give inauthentic likes, follows and comments to others".

'Since the early days of Instagram, we have auto-detected and removed fake accounts to protect our community'.

Some users on Instagram reported a decrease in hundreds of thousands of followers and their accounts were following less profiles than they were previously.
