    Hey guys!

    I was just wondering if many of you delete pics which have a somewhat bad engagement compared to other uploads.

    Example:
    Usual likes received 300-400, ~10+ comments
    "Bad engagement pic/vid" - 150-200 likes, 2-5 comments

    Delete or keep?

    I wouldn't delete those, maybe if they get significantly less engagement, like 10 likes.
    If you take a look at other accs, like fluctuation is pretty common, you won't get the same high amount of likes to all your pics, it's natural.

    A difference in 100 likes is nothing. The bigger your account the bigger fluctuation you'll see, simply as a result from when most people are online. Keep them.

    I'd keep them. If they are not significantly lower than average, then they are boosting your content to a degree.

    I do delete them actually , because in my opinion it's a direct correlation between what your followers likes and don't.
    Maybe I'm wrong?

    No, it is a direct correlation to when most of your followers are online. I've tested this, uploading a relevant but not great photo in my followers prime time and the like are still ticking in better than a great photo on a less active day.
