Does Running Ads Affect Account Trust on Instagram?
Just had a rather fascinating thought.
If I were running Instagram I would definitely prioritize users who spend money on the platform. I would give them hidden benefits and improve their overall experience in any way possible. Surely Instagram / Facebook does this?
In particular, any accounts which spend money on Instagram can’t possibly be spam… can they? Why would Instagram block the spenders which they so desperately desire? I refuse to believe that they would allow it… but I can speculate all I want. Data talks.
