Spam on Instagram many accounts hacked last week end

Spam on Instagram. Many accounts hacked last weekend . Unfortunately it seems spam is invading our beloved Instagram. What is really happening? . Last weekend, Instagramers.com received dozens of user reports of severe spam attacks on account privacy. Even Igers ourselves discovered our account had a pic that we didn’t post promoting a campaign (see right). . Huge increase of spam on Instagram recently . “Guerrilla Marketing” agencies and “Low Cost” advertising Strategies  with no respect for users and attracted by our 100 million audience are abusing our rights.

We’re also filtering for certain words and phrases. We hope these changes encourage more genuine interactions between users. More info...
