    I heard that IG throttles your reach in order to sell their ad thingy...the statistics/analytics are really tempting though. Can you Un-Business your account?

    I think it's just a myth, 80% of my pages are on businesses profiles and are doing just fine!

    Yes you can swap your account back to a personal

    Good to know. I'm making my first business account specifically for the analytics and ad possibilities.

    Going to piggyback on this thread:

    Can you still bot the business accounts the same way? The stats look really useful and I've managed a business account before but I'm unsure if the same sort of botting settings would get me banned.

    Thanks
