    Hi guys,
    I have been speaking to a few others in the same niche (travel) and we have all noticed that we are receiving a higher proportion of our likes within the first 1-3 hours than before and then we are experiencing a significant decrease in likes from then on.

    This has meant that I am actually receiving about 15% fewer likes than previously. Has anyone else noticed this or could this be something else?

    Are you a business account? If so, I heard that IG is lowering the engagement on Biz accounts so the Biz account will buy ADS through IG

    I'm using business profiles for most of my accounts, I could only say in the last couple weeks I've only seen an increase of engagement with my accounts so not sure what's going on!

    If you can, try to take one of your accounts off of the business profile. Test it for a few weeks and then compare. I've seen the opposite for the accounts that I handle that are in the Travel niche. They are getting more likes in the first 2 hours, and from then, stay at the top of the hashtags and get even more engagement. All in all, are receiving about 20-40% more engagement within 24 hours. What I have stopped is engagement rounds since about 2 weeks ago. We will see if this keeps going on for the next few weeks.

    Yep it's been going on for a while now.

    Prepare to pay for reach.

    I've had similar results as well. Ever since I stopped those EG groups, my oragnic engagement came back and even increased.
