Instagram is apparently looking to strengthen its relationship with meme accounts. The photo- and video-sharing site posted a job description last week for a strategic partner manager who will work with "emerging digital media publishers." The listing comes after Instagram reportedly suspended dozens of meme accounts last month for violating its terms of service.
As part of the role, the strategic partner manager will find and plan initiatives with up-and-coming media publishers such as meme accounts, according to the job posting. They'll also strengthen relationships with publishers and help them be successful on the platform.
Instagram has faced backlash for purging meme accounts. After permanently suspending accounts in July, users started petitions to have their accounts reinstated. Instagram also shut down several accounts in December.
