Who desires to deal with malicious spammers on social media?

Are you tired of dealing with spam on social media?
I am.
Unfortunately, it has become a rampant issue taking over our feeds. Spammers are taking advantage of the creative space that social media platforms provide. Let me tell you a story that illustrates how big of a problem this has become.
Spammers plague NFT platforms, both the creative and unimaginative kind. How do social media and other social platforms react to prevent these spammers from overwhelming the platform and tarnishing the experience for legitimate users? They don’t. I often send messages to Instagram, Linkedin, and Facebook about a fake account, and nothing happens. Facebook’s reaction is always the same: ‘Nothing suspicious about this account’. A spammer wanting to buy your art, sending fake links to their PayPal account, NFT’s spammers to ask you to add your art to spamming or fake platforms or to send your ID for your funds.
I am even getting people who send me their addresses to ship my art. Do they think that an artist will send their work before receiving payment?

Here are some questions, and I would like to know the answers.

1. What specific measures can social media/ NFT platforms take to combat spamming without infringing on users’ privacy?
2. How do spammers bypass the security and verification protocols of LinkedIn and NFT platforms?
3. What impact does spamming have on the overall user experience and reputation of NFT platforms in the long run?
4. What are some common characteristics of creative spammers on social media and NFT platforms, and how can they be identified and prevented?
5. Are there any successful case studies of social media and NFT platforms that have effectively tackled spamming? If so, what can be learned from them?
