BNK48 is a Thai idol group and the third international sister group of the Japanese idol group AKB48, based in Bangkok, Thailand. Their main language is Thai, some contents are in Japanese or English.
Due to the group is an AKB48 sister group, and some fans' loyalty to a member or the group (ones may request the deletion by do a copyright report, he may thinking that the deletion of the copies is/means protecting the member and not care about preserving the videos), the group's non-music contents are also can be blatantly copyrighted contents.
Members that have "graduated"
iAM ("Independent Artist Management", the company that owned BNK48, previously known as "BNK48 Office") creates all BNK48 members' official Facebook and Instagram accounts for each member to use. Some members has her non-BNK48 personal accounts too (revealed by accidentally, unmasked by hater, or in some cases she allowed her fans to know it). Like its sister group, the resignation from the group of a member is known as "graduation". When she "graduated", her BNK48-Official accounts are disabled or deleted (or renamed, to keep the followers) and all contents of her (as a BNK48 member) in them are deleted by iAM or by the member herself, as a process of "graduating". Fortunately, some graduatings are announced before the graduate date.

Vital Signs (of the group)
Stable, probably not going anywhere too soon without warning.
The contracts between the same generation members and the iAM company may have the same length (same start date and same expiration date), so the mass "graduation" is possible due to the mass ending of members' contracts, but it doesn't mean the end of the group.
- CGM48, a BKB48's sister group, also assigned official accounts for each member.
