Anyone else's photo/comment tags not appearing in the "recent tags" section?

    I messed around with Instagram about a year ago with 4 accounts that were botted on. Lost interest in them and stopped using them. Today I opened up 1 account and started posting photos with 4-7 tags and did that for 1 photo per hour. The account has 6 photos up and not a single like. I remember back when I first started I was able to rack up at least 10 likes on a photo on the first day for each of the 4 accounts. Was there some kind of major change in the search algo or am I experiencing a bug (which I read has happened to people about 4 months ago)?

    P.S. The accounts that were botted on were done with the lowest/safest settings and were up for a couple of months before I manually retired them. Never had any issues with those accounts.

    P.S.S. Here's a link to a reddit thread where people were having similar issues a month ago with aged and new accounts and posting frequency was not an issue:

    And another thread of people posting about the problem today:
