Facebook and Instagram have filed a lawsuit against New Zealand-based company, on the grounds of misappropriate use of the latter’s app. According to lawsuit, the defendant was accused of using Instagram to provide fake likes, views, and followers to a list other Instagram users.
Specifically, the social network alleges that the company and its three employees had created multiple accounts to market their services and to create fake engagement services to unsuspecting users of the app. And in doing so, profiting from the act unscrupulously.
It’s pretty clear that Facebook has been on something of a warpath against its users’ inappropriate uses of its main platform and Instagram. Earlier this month, the social media platform began a culling exercise on the latter; it started demoting posts that it deemed to be either inappropriate or sexually explicit.
