stillrude ️ ...been warned there will be unintended casualties, apologies in advance #igexorcist 1w
  •   gailthorntonuk So sorry 😟 I'm still relatively new to Instagram and I don't understand the significance of your post. (Can't see all the text to be able to work out what it's saying.) Would you indulge me and explain? Thanks ️ 1w
  •   stillrude @gailthorntonuk sure no worries. I just activated 'IG Exorcist', an app which slowly removes inactive/spam accounts from your followers. It warned me upon activating it that there will be collateral damage in the form of it removing followers I may genuinely engage with.️ 1w
  •   gailthorntonuk Thanks Rudi! I shall wait to see if I've been "cleansed"! 1w
  •   stillrude @gailthorntonuk yeah & I'll be keeping an eye out too, I really appreciate your continued support ️ 1w
  •   gailthorntonuk You're welcome. 1w
  •   eustography Yo! Does this app block the people or just makes them unfollow you some how? 1w
  •   stillrude @eustography think (!) initially it blocks them so they are removed from your follower list then it immediately unblocks them so that actives are able to follow you again. 7d

aviation_texas129 Ok guys I will begin to delete ghost followers in an hour, but because so many people are asking me I use the website IG Exorcist it works by scanning all of my likes and who they are by if someone hasn't liked my picture in more than 200 days they will be counted as a ghost and deleted. Here is an atlas air 747-400 parked at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. #kaus #aus #boeing #boeing747 #texasplanes #texasaviation #futurepilot #futureplane #pilotintraining #avgeek #aviation #aviationlovers #theaustinaircraft #igexorcist 2w

  •   burk219 With nocrop app all shots fit without clipping the sides 16h
  •   renee_shelley Ohhh... I'm a da thanks looking up now.. 16h
  •   burk219 How do ghosts slow people diwn ? 16h
  •   burk219 Btw i think its Igexorcist ..not igexorist 16h
  •   renee_shelley @burk219 it is must've been in a hurry typo sorry..... Why would anyone want 700 (example only) followers and get 90 likes (all examples) along with if I follow say 500 ppl there is no way I can keep up unless I go to each person this is just easier for me.. Anyone can do as they choose but really after that 180 days n no likes I'm like why follow?? Not meant for anyone it's just I've had time to dig really deep on some things... What I've found isn't pretty 16h
  •   burk219 i need to get rid of about 2500 16h

sionfullana My apologies for the unorthodox type of post, but as an artist and creator, my integrity comes always first and foremost and I think the statement needs to be shared.

I realized this week there's a big problem here on Instagram. I find it's a hilarious irony: I'm finally feeling 100% committed to cleaning house on my Instagram feed to delete spambots/ghost followers from the ancient times when I was added to a suggested user list, with people who appear as a follower, a number only, but who may have never used the app for years or never seen a single one of my posts. However, as it turns out, it seems it can't be done!
For it would appear that for people with a over a certain number of followers, apps like IgExorcist, Followers+, etc that would help remove those unwanted accounts, just won't work BECAUSE of some kind of an Instagram algorithm that prevents deleting more than X followers per X time. Something ridiculous like 10 people per hour or so. I had even paid 0.99$ for an app to be able to do it, and what you see on the photo is the response I get when trying to see ghost accounts and delete them. Every single day!

To me, the fact that #Instagram prevents people with large following from removing those ghosts/spammers only means they clearly have an interest in keeping alive the "mirage" of large numbers, of "super star" users while others dream to get there some day. It all serves to oil the machine and to keep saying how much growth keeps happening in total number of users.

I say, be honest. Be transparent and let users choose how to deal with their own feeds. I'd rather my 70K become a 10K or even a 2K of people who I'd know are REAL and enjoying what I share, rather than feeling that number is fully real (when it's clearly not: on average I may get 500 likes... With 70.000 followers?? Something doesn't add up. But I really want to get to the bottom of it, consequences be damned. When me and my husband @anton_in_nyc were first added to the suggested list, in the first few months after Instagram was born years ago, our numbers skyrocketed. (CONTINUES IN COMMENT SECTION!!!!)

  •   kristahuls It's the same with Facebook advertising and twitter. Frustrating! 2mon
  •   simbius You have to realize that the norm in society is to praise mediocrity and destroy originality/true talent because the majority of public lack any real taste and will spend $ on shite! Hence the decline of America cinema, the praise over no talent hacks like warhol, and the glaring fact that cheaper is better than quality. Facebook purchased instagram.. it's a company through and through. 2mon
  •   _raygun I tried doing this a while ago and ran into the same problem. Finally gave up. Sorry if this has been addressed already, but apparently Instagram has done a ghost account purge a while back. There are see weak articles written about it (one user, notoriously went from 1M+ followers to a ridiculously small amount. Think it was 7). Unfortunately, IG is a social platform and its value is measured by the number of accounts. A dramatic drop in users, real or not, would devaluate the company. It's pathetic and sad, but true. 2mon
  •   _raygun Should've read *there are SEVERAL articles* 2mon
  •   sionfullana @_raygun When they did "their purge" I lost about 7,000 or so. But I'm sure for real the fake numbers and the absentees among the 70K may be way way higher. That's why they prevent us from seeing which people haven't liked or commented on your photos in X time, which would mean users that didn't exist anymore . 2mon
  •   ironsage Well said. I fully support exorcising Ghost followers! May I have your permission to quote you on your caption please? 2mon
  •   sionfullana @ironsage Most definitely! Thanks 2mon
  •   ironsage Awesome! Good week ahead! 2mon

  •   mayra_n_chanel I also unfollow people manually that have not been on in ages 2mon
  •   jettathepom Some people follow and never even plan to like or post . So weird 2mon
  •   elemer_torokmez I also unfollow ghosties!! ;-) 2mon
  •   annatorill Cool!! 2mon
  •   fred_the_pomeranian Done, @lanusstory!!! 2mon
  •   laikapom Is there an app where you can delete the mall at once? Because I literally have like 2000 ghost followers 2mon
  •   fred_the_pomeranian @laikapom, I used IG Exorcist when Fred hit 1k and it worked perfectly. But I tried MANY times yesterday and it wouldn't work for me. It didn't look the same either so I'm guessing they made some changes. Before it deleted them all together but it took a long time because they only can do 10 per hour for some reason. But you can leave the website and it will continue the process. Maybe it will work for you? I just googled them. Let me know if it works for you! 2mon

Lo-fi jess galliano
jessgalliano Gracias a #igexorcist mi número de seguidores ha bajado de más de 500 a poco más de 300, mientras que la media de "likes" por foto sigue intacta Y la limpieza sigue... #stopghostfollowers #SiNuncaLeDasAlMeGustaPaQuéMeSigues 2mon
  •   tonet001 Es una app? 2mon
  •   etehcan ¿De qué va la app? 2mon
  •   jessgalliano Creo que para iphones sí hay app. Yo tengo android y tengo que hacerlo desde la web de igexorcist. Una vez conectado tienes la posibilidad de deshacerte de los seguidores que llevan más de 60, 90, 120 ó 180 días sin darte un like, tú eliges. Yo siempre elijo la opción de 180 días. Además, elijas la que elijas, desaparecen también los seguidores que nunca han dado al me gusta, aunque ese seguidor lleve siguiéndote solo una semana, por ejemplo. En resumen, siempre se borran los que nunca dan han dado al like, más los que lleven un número de días que tu elijas sin darle like @mikeginer 2mon
  •   etehcan Gracias por la info. 2mon
