What Is an Instagram Creator Account?

Instagram advertises creator accounts as it provides more insights and information about the growth and decline of audience. This account type is solely meant to know the influencers and brands more details related to how and why their audience has shifted. As of now, brands can only view them by and large weekly growth.

2) Instagram Creator Accounts Connects to a Filtered Inbox for Direct Messages
