    I have 18K followers and my posts are struggling to get over 1k likes, whereas when I had 11K followers a month or two ago I was comfortably getting 1.1K likes per photo, more for some.

    Anyone else?

    :(

    We already discussed this topic here in this section, if you search for it, you'll surely find it.

    to answer your question: yes, some users have been noticing engagement drops, which might have to do with your image being displayed less on the explore tab, 'cause you might have been receiving lots of likes from non-followers which might have dropped now. Could be because of their new ad-system.

    How annoying. Might be time to find the next best social media then.

    Pinterest? :')

    I've never used Pinterest but Instagram is still good, if you focus on quality content I'm pre sure that you'll be constantly growing.

    I agree. My engagement varies on the content I post so you have to make sure you are posting at times the most people are on and such and be consistent via posting daily and such...

    Same here, all my engagement has decreased but whatever, i'll just keep growing it.

    Haha, pinterest will never be better than instagram.
    Simple statistics show it.

    I've started Pinterest last week just to see how it goes.
    Right now i have around 300 followers but barely any of them visit my website.

    Still, just about 5-10 minutes a day and i've been only doing it for a week so i'll keep going for a while more.

    i think it's partially ghosted by IG.
    my likes dropped by 60% 1 day after i was unable to follow.

    i was unable to follow once before when i got a warning. this time around, i did not even get a warning. i just couldnt follow. i have been consistently follow and unfollow about 800 everyday.

    i hope the account still can recover.

    I'm having a similar problem. My account seems to be partially ghosted on IG. My pictures only show for some of my followers (I have proof of this). Anyone know how to overcome this?

    This could've been because Instagram had been deleting accounts. On days that Instagram is deleting, my likes tend to lower as well.

    Yeah, we have seen huge drops in the last month. Someone here said that Instagram sometimes delete/ban sprees...

    This has happened a few times in the past year. Instagram is very secretive with how they do things. Everything seems to be going towards Ads!
