    I notice my engagement is down. Almost all my likes are from my actual followers. Almost none from accounts that dont follow me. I check the hashtags with an account that is not following my main account, and I show up on them.

    Am I shadowbanned?

    I read your thread. If I am shadowbanned how come I still see my posts under the hashtags when I log into accounts that are not following my main account?

    I have 10k followers. Yesterday's post got 1000 likes. My posts average around 600-700 likes and my lows are around 400 likes.

    Just trying to figure out how my engagement is and if I'm shadowbanned.

    If you're shadowbanned you won't show up in hashtags. There are lots of sites where you can check for a shadowban.

    I noticed what seems to be a drop in in engagement on my 50k real followers IG page over the last week. It seems like the engagement is slow at the beginning of the post but that it steadily increases as the post ages, maybe they tweaked something.

    new to forum. can we DM here? I just made this post on another thread... if anyone can restore my account I will pay you!

    VERY similar situation here! (in fitness, just over 100k followers)
    I was getting min. 4k organic followers a month and up to 6k. i started using a social media expansion service (follow/unfollow and like boost) I discontinued with them in february and turned off robolike then too because I had the feeling I was being throttled. it's now may and my following it 600 per month... it's been like this since jan/feb now. I get a lot of people watching my story (2-3k) but engagement on posts is at 0.7 - 1% . I don't even care about growing anymore, I just want my acount to be functioning normally...

    (interesting side note, when carousel was launched, i didn't have it for two weeks until I wrote IG about it and then I had it within 24 hours...)

    *edit I am going back now 27 weeks and deleting every post I did hashtags in first comment
