    Our Engagement, followers and Interests have decreased massively in the last week. We are a restaurant with a 20k+ following but our likes and followings are getting worse each week. We used to have between 1500 & 2000 new followers a week, now its less than 100.. We post upto 4 posts a day, run comps + giveaways, changed our photos and layout, tried everything and only the giveaways are attracting customers (because who doesnt like free shit)

    I've checked to see if Insta has changed their algorithm but nothing that i can see since June 2016.

    Anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to get our followings back up?

    Have you switched by any chance to a business profile from the IG settings ?

    It's happening to a lot of accounts. It's Instagram's algorithm. Nothing we can do.

    Yes, but when IG first launched it.

    you can try switching back to a non business account, but you wont get your engagement back up to where it was.
    its IG algorithm thats changed and its affected pretty much everyone.

    Was there a recent change in the algorithm? I am only getting half the likes, and a fraction of the comments I used to? But I did not change anything? I am posting one pic per day and haven't used any links whatsoever in my bio, as it is my personal account that I am growing.

    Correct. Many forums reporting this. I've also experienced it on accounts that I handle (not own), in different niches. No change in posting times, no change in photo quality, zilch. IG algorithm is going berserk.
