On the Amazon Web Services platform, an open database was found with data from more than 49 million Instagram users, including celebrities, influenza accounts and brands.
The data in the database included not only publicly available information from the social network profile, but also an email address, telephone number and data on the cost of advertising in the account, writes TechCrunch.
This figure is the ratio of the number of subscribers to likes, the coverage of posts and the involvement of subscribers (followers).
Each record in the database contained an estimate of the cost of each account, calculated on the basis of the number of followers, involvement and audience coverage, the number of likes and how many times the followers shared the post.
Indian researcher Anurag Sen, who discovered this database on the network, turned to TechCrunch journalists, who were able to link the find with Chtrbox based in Mumbai. She is engaged in marketing in social networks.
