    So there was this account I didn't really use much. But kept posting every day and didn't do much for followers.

    So it had like 4k followers, 5.5k followings and each post got almost like 400-500+ likes easily and 0 to 10 comments in 2 days.

    After I decided to use it more, I mass unfollowed the users and gained like 4-4.5k more followers. During that time the likes that posts get dropped drastically. 200-350 likes in 2-3 days and most posts didn't even get more than 300 likes.

    Then I thought to myself "maybe it's about the algorithm" so I mass followed people, again.

    Right now I have 9k followers, 5k followings. The quality of the posts, posting hours, hashtags used etc. are the same. But still I don't get as many like before. 200-350 likes in 2-3 days.

    Any idea why?
