The “curated” content Instagram feeds. We all know them, we’ve all seen them, maybe we even follow one or two. Such accounts don’t actually create anything of their own, instead relying on other people to create imagery which they can then
steal and repost share to their own feeds in order to try to build up some kind of audience.
Ok, to be fair, the reputable ones do ask permission first. But some of these accounts are dedicated to just posting memes. So, Instagram had what’s being called the “meme purge” recently and deleted a bunch of them. Accounts followed by millions of people. Now, the creators of those accounts are moaning about losing out on hundreds of thousands of dollars of income.
