Like Twitter, users crave to increase their followers on their Instagram accounts. By increasing followers, you can get more likes and views on the posts. However, if you are using an open account on Instagram, you might get random followers. Therefore, you must always check your Instagram account and see randomly someone who followed you recently to avoid scams and other issues.
