Huge instagram purge going on

Merry Xmas guys!

Had word from a number of clients of mine that there is a huge Instagram purge taking place -many big meme pages seem to have gone like:

@God
@societyfeelings
@jaw @guys @course @lamp @mcm @kiddo @memlord and many many more meme pages.

Thoughts?

I´ve A FEW locked accounts as well at the moment. Without reason. Regarding one account I got the following mail:

Please attach a photo of yourself holding a hand-written copy of the code below:

XXXXXXX

The photo you send:

  1. Must include the code above written on a clean sheet of paper, followed by your full name and username

  2. Must clearly show both the code and your face

  3. Must be saved and attached to your reply as a JPEG file

Please note that we won’t be able to help until we receive a photo that meets these requirements.

That’s scary!
How did you find out those pages were terminated?

I think it’s connected to the OGs and middleman buying/selling them, and their device ban. Those accounts you listed are owned by 2-3 people. At least that is the only pattern between all the bans i found

We should avoid buying insta for now?

Wait, didn’t @societyfeelings have like 14 mil followers?

Yes I had a 40K page banned too on Xmas. Nice Xmas Gift from IG

Any news in this matter?

I got banned with 5 accounts this night

Just gotta try to unban them right now. I was able to recover mine

I tried to open a ticket by using the following link:

… as no message showed up after I tried to login. I entered the details of the pages but got no feedback so far.

Takes a few business days for them to answer
