    My acc has 50K followers and now it only has 0.7% - 1.1% likes. That's really a disaster!! One month before, I had 2%-3% likes rate.. Anyone has similar sharply change?

    I manually did follow 700-750/day and 1200 likes before.. Now I use Instagress and it does 450 follow and 700likes/day... Is it because of this? or IG changed something?

    I'm having the same problem, MAJOR drop in engagement almost overnight. I was using instagress as well but stopped. My engagement has not recovered. Do you have a source or remember where you heard that? I'm really curious if it takes a certain amount of time to recover or if it is not possible to recover. I don't think my images are being shown to all of my followers. I think I'm somehow being throttled but can't find anyone else with the same problem.

    I don't think stopping your botting activities will improve your engagement. It will most likely drop or stay in place. Unless you're a big account and growing independently of botting. However, you could improve your engagement by improving the way you use your bots. Re-think your strategy and settings and see what you can improve that would increase your engagement.

    I saw an acc over 100K follower's engagement sharply decreased too. We are all based in New York. Maybe IG is doing some new algorithm starting from specific areas or accs...
