Over the past two weeks many Instagram accounts have reported a sudden drop in followers overnight.

Your average Joe may not have noticed this drop in their Instagram followers, however the larger accounts managed by Instagram influencers and companies would have done. Especially when some accounts have seen a drop in up to half a million followers.

There have been many theories thrown around. Whether it was a clamp down on robot accounts, a technical issue or the closing down of un-active accounts.

Instagram have made it clear in a number of announcements that they have been experiencing a bug and have been working hard to resolve it.

If you have been affected by this bug then hang on in there – it should all be resolved shortly.
