This program, that counts followers, works bad. It looks like they are trying to estimate quality of followers by their supposed activity, not by their real data (because they just don't have real data). But real people also act differently on SNS.

Just try it for your own instagram.

I tried and they said that i have fake followers. Now I think who is it from my 5 real family members and friends are "fakes"?

I found that article - it's here on Hypebeast - and it says "IG Audit" has been used for determining those percentages. Feeding that tool with other currently popular K-Pop group (!) accounts is quite interesting:

- nct (nct; 48%)

- EXO (weareone.exo; 46%)

- TWICE (twicetagram; 46%)

- Super Junior (superjunior; 44%)

- Seventeen (saythename_17; 42%)

- LOONA (loonatheworld; 42%)

- BLACKPINK (blackpinkofficial; 41%)

- SF9 (sf9official; 38%)

- ITZY (itzy.all.in.us; 35%)

(These numbers can change and might be outdated, despite being calculated yesterday)
