    Celebrities lose millions of followers in Instagram purge

    Celebs with impressive numbers of followers on Instagram may not be as popular as they think.

    The social media site recently told all users, “Your number of followers has changed. We just completed a fix to remove spammy accounts.”

    That’s bad news for stars who either attract large numbers of spam accounts or in some cases pad their followers by adding fake ones.

    Many stars’ accounts are handled by a social media team, explains Michael Heller, CEO of Talent Resources. “It’s very inexpensive, so that’s why many social media teams [buy followers].” Web sites can charge just $30 for 2,500.

    Whether the faux followers are paid for or not, the result of Instagram’s fake account purge has seen celebs’ numbers plummet.

    On Thursday, we noticed about 1.3 million of Kim Kardashian’s vanished. Rihanna’s decreased by about 1.2 million. Katy Perry’s went down 300,000. Even Oprah lost 100,000.

    “It’s bad for a celeb for many reasons,” Heller said. “It’s embarrassing,” plus, “they also could lose lots of money.”

    Brands pay up to $100,000 for posts and negotiate fees based on followers. Bravo’s Andy Cohen tweeted, “I lost 20k followers in the #InstagramPurge . . . Twitter, next?”

    Anybody check this out for real? I'll bet it really does affect her followers. I have no idea how many she had before.

    Beef's account says she has 98.1k followers now.

    I never went there enough to notice what it was before.

    Grr. I wish I had noticed her numbers before.
    But I'm sure she bought some different ones the second it was announced that they
    were getting rid of the other ones.

    I think this is actually from a scene from the Bollywood production "India Vacation." What you see here is the family bikester loaded up with Clark and Ellen Ganguly and their zany kids.
