Instagram Still Working On Fixing Follower Count Bug

Instagram users noticed a bug on the platform yesterday that caused a huge drop in followers. This led some users to wonder if Instagram was deleting inactive and fake accounts, like what YouTube did last year to remove spam.

Instagram confirmed there was a bug in the platform rather than a planned purge:

Some noticed that they weren’t just losing followers but that Instagram was making them unfollow people as well.

Social Media Consultant Matt Navarra has been keeping track of the follower count drop for popular users on the platform on a Google docs spreadsheet. Barack Obama, Justin Bieber, Kylie Jenner, Selena Gomez, and Katy Perry all saw significant drops in their follower count.

Instagram says that they expect to resolve the issue by evening tomorrow.
