    Hi friends,
    For last few days I'm getting severely low impression and reach on my posts on Instagram.
    They are much lower than the usual I get. Hence the engagement has dropped down too.

    I never used any bot before. It's a hand-grown account.

    Anyone else facing the same issue for last few days ?

    sometimes just happens, I talked about it with a bunch of people. Just be patient, if you didn't nothing strange you shouldn't be worried! (or yes, haha, it's Instagram...)

    Exact same thing happening to me since Friday. My posts usually get 800 to 900 likes within the first day. On Friday, my post was trending to get about 400 likes and on Monday what I personally believe to be one of the best photos I've posted gained 600. I've never used any bots, just a lot of manual liking of accounts in my niches.

    Mine seems to have gone back up, but there now seems to be more variation in how photos are performing. I used to get consistently around 750-950 likes in the first 24 hours, with the first 250 likes coming within 1 hour form posting. Since Friday a few have tanked pretty badly, gaining under 100 likes in the first hour. My posting schedule has remained unchanged, and I don't believe that photos that tanked were any different from the rest quality-wise.

    I did write to Instagram to complain about my posts being trottled, and interestingly enough shortly after I reported the issue, my latest photo started gaining likes like crazy. Could be a coincidence of course, but none of my other photos that I posted in the lat 4 months seen jump in engagement at the 5th hour of being posted; it usually starts dying out at that point.

    There are occasions that people do nasty stuff on your posts.
    Bots come and follow your page.
    Comment things that are not good at instagrams eye.
    Try banning and deleting if you find any dodgy stuff you may find.
    Hope it helps

    Try and check a little your followers, see if they are regular people or bots. If you have a lot of bot followers their engaement might have dropped for some reason and that affects your account without even knowing it.

    there are probably bots that can do it, but before you go there do a manual check, nothing can beat that and you can spot fake accounts faster

    Yes, it happened to me too. I suppose it's because other pages are a lot of posts with power likes and these overwhelm posts with normal likes
