Instagram to fight off spam and fake naked ladies

big-spam.jpgIf you’re a big fan of Instagram you’ll know it’s full of awesome photos, retro filters, all of your friends’ snaps and tonnes of spam links to Justin Bieber sites, bargain blogs and people pretending to be hot MILFs.

Of course the last three are really irritating and not what the Instagram team really had in mind when they were building the popular photo app, which is why Facebook has decided to wade in too and start fighting off all of the nasty spam like some really lame super hero team.

According to a comment under a recent photo from the official Instagram account, a group of engineers has already been tasked with tackling the big, fat, juicy spam problem:

“There’s no quick fix, but we have a team of engineers working every day to tackle the issue and we hope you’ll notice their improvements.”

You can do your bit too by weeding out the spammers and reporting them, which should make you feel warm, fuzzy and like you’re doing your bit to fight off fake naked ladies.
