Scammers for a fee can ban anyone you want and can for a larger fee get banned accounts back on line. This is not good for those of us that think of IG as a stable platform. It is NOT. What it is , is a free platform owned and operated by Facebook and if this isn’t enough to get you thinking then nothing will. I don’t as of yet know of an alternative. I have over 2000 posts on IG. If it went away tomorrow or I had to cancel IG and FB I would still be alive and doing photography. That being said IG is a source of motivation, inspiration and entertainment.
