Instagram Removes Fake Accounts!

Starting in April 2014, Instagram began to remove inactive and fake accounts from the platform. Within the second wave of “cleansing”, Instagram wants to fix the problem for the bigger community in the new year.

Instagram states that the process of removing inactive and fake accounts are for the sake of the best possible user experience. They also stress the importance of Community Guidelines and want all users to be in compliance with them.
