Earlier today, users took this concern on other social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook. People began expressing their concern over losing from 10 followers to 50,000… and yes that is true.



But do not panic.

Instagram is aware of the scenario and a tweet yesterday indicates they are working on it.

Instagram: We are aware of the issue that is causing a change in account follower numbers for some people right now. We’re working to resolve this as quickly as possible.” 



Some users assumed that it is because of Instagram changed its algorithm. Some say the loss in followers attributed due to Instagram is deleting old inactive accounts or bots.

However, Instagram later responded, assuring they were investigating the cause and expect to be resolved by tomorrow.

Later on, the app tweeted once again:

Update: we’re expecting to have this issue resolved by 9 a.m PST tomorrow. We understand this is frustrating, and our team is hard at work to get things back to normal.



Recently, an image was circulated all over the Instagram which appeared to be Instagram’s Twitter handle.

The image indicated – Beginning on March 1, 2019, Instagram will be deleting all inactive accounts. This includes any accounts that don’t post, like or comment. To save your account without any risks, please screenshot and repost this tweet on Instagram with the hashtag #savemyaccount2019.
