Instagram left it’s mark on many an account yesterday after a clean up of spam accounts caused a decrease in followers.
The social media site warned users that their numbers might be changing but the warning fell on deaf ears until users saw the decline with their own eyes.
I’m not one to obsess over follower count, but there are many out there who keep tabs and being that the internet is like a form of high school, the popularity contest left many with hurt feelings when the awoke to less than stellar numbers.
A crackdown on spam Instagram accounts has triggered a cataclysm in the world of low-grade social media celebrities. The event, which began today after the photo-sharing service made good on its promise to start deleting millions of fake accounts, has been dubbed the “Instagram Rapture” after the follower counts of apparently popular Instagrammers were savaged.
Rapper Tyga saw his followers drop from 5.5 million to 2.2 million, and Ma$e felt so distraught after freefalling from 1.6 million followers to around 100,000, that he deleted his entire account!
Ma$e wasn’t the only one hit though… check out a list of the top 100 hardest hit Instagram accounts below: Continue Reading…

K. Whasserface, who happens to be a member of Delta Sigma Theta… and also happens to have contributed to one of the most ratchet reality series ever aired, fixed her lips to call the show “inappropriate”.
I’m real… it’s not appropriate. Like.. I love Mona. I love Vh1 to death, they are all my family but I’m not a fake person in my beliefs.
That should have never been touched. Some things are sacred for us. Everything doesn’t need to be exposed when it comes to that.
To Whasserface’s credit, she goes on to explain herself but the overall consensus is that she’s not the right person to deliver this message.
