    Hello,

    Probably about a month ago I noticed my instagram engagement literally MELTDOWN. I used to get 4,000 - 5,000 likes on every photo even if it's not an interesting photo or a photo of top quality, If i put some time into finding quality phots i could easily get 8 - 9k likes naturally - no groups no nothing. Now I struggle to get 3,000 like on my photos and I couldn't figure out the reason for it. I switched to a business account probably 2 months ago just for like a few hours, but then I stopped it when i read the bad reviews for it. Today i was casually scrolling through Instagram and I noticed that on all my posts and on my profile i could click "Insights" , which is something i am 100% sure is only for BUSINESS accounts. I went to check on my 50k fashion page and I don't have these insights. I checked on my account and it says that it is personal, but I have no explanation for this... I really need help, because now i barely gain 100 - 200 followers a day, but before i could easily go up to 1k daily. I would really appreciate any help, thanks!

    Well I contacted their support, but let's hope they don't reply after 3 months... I am 90% sure that this is the reason that my engagement dropped so much. If those Insights are there, but my account says it's not business ... I have no explanation for this.

    If you can, switch back to a personal account. Many here on BHW have been reporting that when you switch to a business account, engagement drops.

    I think it makes sense. Instagram wants to make money. One way of doing that is to make you think that you need to spend money on posts, so that your "engagement" grows. Typical bait and switch tactic.

    Lol, what did i say mate - "I switched to a business account probably 2 months ago just for like a few hours, but then I stopped it when i read the bad reviews for it. "

    Currently I'm using a personal from what I see, but it still gives me insights, so i guess it is a bug
