    My account grows average of 150+ followers per day. And then i got an invite from IG to switch to business account ( I just only wanted to see the features). I noticed a big drop on growth so I switch back to personal, but sadly the growth isn't that big as before

    Anyone has the same experience like this?

    Doesnt have to to something with the business profile, tho I dont like it. Did you buy followers in the past?

    I Noticed the exact same thing!!
    Not only did my growth is now smaller but also my engagement. I went from +200/300 likes per photo to 100/150. It's a major drop...
    I think Instagram is slowly starting to become like facebook and eventually organic growth/engagement will become a thing of the past.
    For someone that enter it only some months ago its quite disappointing

    I did not bought any fake followers and my current engagement without hashtag is 1k+ per pic, i believe that the business profile has something to do with this drop since it all started when i switch to it. hope the growth will return again :(

    No doubt. They bypassed the old method where you could get on the explore page by tagging, just a few days ago.

    I still grow 500 followers a day with my other methods, so it's fine for me, but sucks for others.

    I think it even applies to not business. My accounts the past few weeks have been decreasing
