Problem – More people are being radicalized through Instagram than ever. Many of the radicalizing profiles do not technically violate Instagram’s rules and are therefore not shut down.
Insight – Instagram’s algorithm is designed to shadowban accounts with fake followers and ultimately shut them down.
Solution – Follow Their Leader is a platform where radicalizing profiles are put up for sale in order to crowdsource the purchase of fake followers to shut the radicalizing profiles down.
