    Okay this is the last straw for me, my latest post got 50 freaking likes. 50. out of 32k followers. how is this even possible??
    I used to average 1000-2000 likes
    After the algorithm change it just slowly went down to 200 now this.
    I am not shadowbanned. I've check location tagging and hashtags on TOR browser and they show.
    I've let it sit for 2 months with no activity, I've gone full manual for 4 months, I've temporarily disabled it. Nothing is bringing it back.
    I'll get 50 new followers a day, but whats the point if they dont see my posts?
    I know I am being throttled because my friends say they never see my account on their feeds.
    Honestly screw instagram! I've researched so much online and no one seems to have a way out.

    Quick update:
    Didn't do Tux's guide because I'm far too lazy, so I just set followliker to like 2 pics from all my followers ( not as efficient I know)
    Anyway engagement is climbing back up. currently at an average of 400 likes per post.
    I think posting everyday has helped too rather than posting twice a week.

    To answer the questions this is a photography account (OC) and my story views get up to 1000 views
    Still think I'm being throttled and will start a new account on a new phone and keep it totally organic.
