    This morning I switched one of my accounts over to a business account, and noticed a drop in engagement on my latest post. I thought it might be the content, until I started reading other threads online. Many people have said that Instagram Business accounts purposely lower your engagement to encourage you to promote your posts.

    Most of these threads are from 2016, does anyone have any info on this in 2017? I've since switched my account back to a personal account, hopefully can bring my engagement back up.

    I have heard about that rumor, too. But when I switched to business account it didn't affect my engagement at least not that I could tell. Shadowbanning seems to be a big thing now too that can reduce engagement.
