For those using instagress to enhance your instagram accounts. They have been officially shut down
Message: Sad news to all of you who fell in love with Instagress: by request of Instagram we were forced to close our web-service that helped you so much in your Instagram journey. We are all very sad of that but it looks like there is nothing we can do at the moment
Of course there is. But the way that anyone uses the software is so different that it leaves less of a footprint. Plus Instagress was huge, and promoted all over. They also probably used huge ranges of IP’s that (probably) were continually banned which would be expensive.
Plus they were very blatant about promoting themselves. IG doesn’t like when you use anything associated with them without consent. I am not even sure if you can use the name, you damn well cannot use their logo in any fashion for sure.
While Instagress had a web GUI, they would have been similar to MP. That is, software on a server.
Reasons why MP might last longer?
They don’t have as huge a presence.
We all use a huge variety of proxies and IP’s, so it;s harder to put a digital “fingerprint” to MP vs Instagress.
Another reason is that MP social promotes safe settings, while Instagress was left entirely up to people that had zero idea of what to do and just wanted MOAR FOLLOWZ.
Actually, what baffles me is how they got taken down. instagress used real device that has custom coded function, basically like a robot that presses buttons for you on a pysical device.
Also, both takedowns, both use different /methods/, but no warning whatsoever to its userbase.
How can someone who runs a business that held thousands of accounts with millions of dollars worth just one day say “i quit” ?
When will businesses start to realize that it’s not just what’s running but the valuation worth behind it? To them, it’s just numbers and figures of subscription, but behind the accounts are worth millions.
Instagress, Followliker and MP must all work in a similar way via a private API. The difference between MP and Instagress is that MP is designed as a general social media management tool, whereas Instagress was positioned as a web-based Instagram growth-hacking platform for the masses.
MP will never be for the masses, as it requires slightly more nouse to setup and run. It might be wishful thinking that MP won’t or can’t be shut down, but only time will tell.
It’d be good to have some reassurance from someone in the know (if that’s even possible)!
