Instagram Cleans House! Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Oprah & More Celeb Lose Significant Followers

When we remove accounts from Instagram that don’t follow our Community Guidelines, you may see a decrease in your follower count. This shouldn’t affect engagement from authentic accounts that like and comment on your posts.

As you know, some celebs purchase followers, while others innocently pick up fake users. Anywho, the Instagram purge seems to be over.

And in other Instagram news, this week they announced five new filters titled: Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden and Perpetua. Apparently, the new filters soften and subtly shift colors. Peep their announcement below.

Today, we’re excited to bring you five new photo filters. Inspired by the photography, art, fashion and design of the global Instagram community, we’re releasing five new filters that we believe are our best yet. You’ll see the filters at the front of your filter tray: Slumber, Crema, Ludwig, Aden and Perpetua. They soften and subtly shift colors to achieve the look and feel you want for your each photo. To make it easier to choose between filters, we’ve also updated how they’re displayed. When you go to apply a filter to your photo, each filter icon on the bottom now displays a blurred preview of your photo with its effect applied. This lets you see at a glance how your photo will appear with each filter applied. Finally, we know that everyone has their favorite filters. We want to keep things simple as we add more, so we’ve added a new “Manage” button at the end of your filter tray. Tap it to re-arrange the order of your filters and hide the ones you rarely use. To learn more about the new filters and how to rearrange your filter tray, visit Instagram for iOS version 6.4.0 is available today in Apple’s App Store, and Instagram for Android version 6.12.0 is available today on Google Play.
