We know how much you love MassPlanner and we appreciate your support all this time. Unfortunately, we have some sad news for you today. Due to a request from Instagram, we were forced to shut down our services. Your product will still work until your license expires, after which the Facebook and Instagram platforms will be removed.
We will still offer our full support through these troubled times, we are here if you have any questions.
Thank you for understanding, The MassPlanner team

For those unaware, Massplanner was an SMO(Social Media Marketing Tool) which allowed the little guy, you and me to compete in the build leagues alongside million dollar a year marketing budgets without a hitch. Massplanner did not just blow the doors off of every other service available but it blew the doors off them in every way possible way --- to the point that if you didn't know what you were doing it could do as much harm as good for your marketing efforts.
A Company, with a marketing budget of 1000$ a year could provide themselves with a full setup. In which conmen and scammers, with whom want you to pay your entire operating budget into (no matter if this means you have no business at all) --- will tell you is an impossible feet in which no company ever could provide.
From hootsuite to buffer and every Social Media Management system in-between they are all suffer from the same complex of overly high pricing, while offering little to nothing in the way of innovation, while at the same time piling on "Bogus" useless extras they try and claim you now receive free. Its an old trick of upselling, but all the same if you meant business and you don't go to hootsuite or buffer you go to massplanner and no one else could stand in the same ring.
Sorry, our service is discontinued
We are sorry, but at the request of Instagram we have been forced to close our service. We will provide more information as soon as we can.
If one was to go look at one of the many Cartel options of the social media marketing world, you would not be hardpressed to find the "True" Scammers of this world already jumping up to push this and that in the favor of their sale.
Just previously to massplanner coming under attack, another well now SMO tool instagress was also shut down but for completely unrelated events.
Instagress was violating copyright by naming itself "Insta"gress and in doing so set itself up to feel the greed of the Cuckerberg Wealth Extraction Team. This lead to troves of their users quickly fleeing to Massplanner (Which is why i assume they came under attack next). However the instagress shutdown was due to copyright infringement and copyright infringement alone where is another well known SMO service AgoraPulse is propagandising the story to their clients claiming it was do to violations of integration policy with instagram.
Now in the long run it may be that it is the cause for them becoming a target but that is not why they shut down.
Nor can these services be shut down completely if they are anything like massplanner and here's why.
The massplanner service works not via a premade API code from the social networks but directly through the accounts, in doing so bypassing any and all ability for instagram or facebook to even know an account is using the service. This comes as an extremely high benefit, as "ALL" SMO tools which use the PREMADE API CODES, have their posts automatically downgraded in feeds and search results by the social networks.
This is the short of system in which the vast majority of services operate; VIA a pre made code which allows the social network to censor your marketing efforts; the companies of which who operate like this are all the same. Here is why.
They want you to pay an extravagant amount of money for a service, that be its very default and nature will not produce the results you are looking for, that this is the game. It's called planned obsolescence. More expensive products at an every diminishing value, while all who step outside the cartels wealth extraction scheme are shut down, bankrupted, sued into the shadows, while "You" the little guy are the one who it hurts the most.

Planned Obsolescence is a decades old practice within monopolised industries of the major players within the industry, acting in collusion to stifle, stop and impede the ability of capitalism to bring new innovation to the marketplace. This is most well known and covered in the documentary "The Light bulb Conspiracy" where one may surprise to find out the light bulbs we have today are intentionally made to a lower standard than 100 years ago to increase profit margins.
Methods used include by are not exclusive to false lawsuits, government intervention, barrier building to enter industry and oh yes, even murder.
For the common passerby or small business owner they have no understanding of any of this, nor can the knowledge of it help them in any little bit. That however does not mean every Scammer Cartel member who was around yesterday, won't be lieing their mouth off today in an effort to sell you, on why their piece of crap is the best you can get.
I have personally offered any help to the team at massplanner in which they may request at any point, in the case in which they may try to fight or circumvent the legal actions taken against them, but for now it looks as the doors are closed. While in the back of my mind I hope the team finds a way around, over, under or inbetween cause to me I just want my innovation, my capitalism. Something that FakeBook and InstaCrap seem dead set on ensuring are never going to be things the public gets.
In my personal opinion this is a cash grab by the social networks to drive away cheaper marketing options forcing those who cannot afford their overpriced Ads, out in the dark. Instagrams/Facebooks have recently put themselves in a investor war with snapchat, leaving Cuckerberg gouging any place he can in the hopes to drive his Monopolization of the social media spectrum even further. Something that should be a much greater concern to the average day user as the more control 1 company exerts the less value you will receive.
Note: Massplanner was not listed on our affiliates section as the service was deemed too good to throw in the face of competition, knowing it would only quicken the bringing actions such as this. If we find something in the future, that can compare to the service which was offered by massplanner, we will be sure to set up a link.
Note From Writer
If you want to take away the control from these corporations it starts with you getting the everyday normies to switch to something new.
Minds, Streamit and many more can all receive the traffic flow.
Once the troves of normies start moving the marketers, promoters, advertisers then all the money Fakebook depends on, will go too.
So if you're a Truth seller or Fact Pusher (Etc), I don't suggest yourself dump it just yet, only to keep sending the normies elsewhere and elsewhere is where we will all end up too.
