Instagram creators will soon find it much easier to deal with spammy followers and bots. According to a new post on the Instagram blog, you will soon be able to process the removal of spam and bot followers in bulk, cutting down on the time it takes to properly moderate your account. These feature are rolling out over the coming weeks.
Further, the Instagram team says that it will begin rolling out new tools that should automatically detect more spam, allowing for spammy comments, tags, story views, and fake followers to be detected automatically. This improved detection will be key to the bulk-removal options that are coming and will help advance the tools you use to control who has access to your account more easily.
Instagram says that spammy comments and followers will now be automatically filtered into a separate inbox, allowing you to review them and delete them in bulk. It’s a good move that should prove helpful for content creators on Instagram, especially since the Meta-run social media site has had more than its fair share of issues with bots and spam.
Meta also says accounts deleted using the new spam detection tools will not be alerted to your choice to remove them from your followers list, which should help cut down on any concerns over possible backlash from removed users.
Additionally, the new auto detection systems helps filter out spammy tags, requiring you to view them and then mark them as real if they don’t actually fall under spam. Any that appear to just be spam, though, can easily be removed and deleted with a new Delete all requests option. And if you don’t want to deal with the tag requests at all, then you can just wait 30 days, as they’ll automatically be deleted after this time if you don’t take action yourself.
Another addition to the app includes a warning that your content might be against the recommendations guidelines or community guidelines, as well as an experimental feature that will hide possible spam views from your stories, making it easier to see your actual exposure on various posts.
