You’re never going to have app a 100% spam free, or even ad free, but I think they’ve done a great job so far. At this time you can only really post 4 times a day within a 24 hour time period. Of course as the number of users increases to the millions it’s going to get harder to manage, but I think everything will be a lot better than IG’s current state.

The app should block accounts that repeatedly comment the same phrase or phrases (within a threshold)
