    Nope, but I do everything manually. It does make a difference in engagement compared to botting.

    I noticed it since instagram introduced instagram stories to compete with snapchat, users are visiting the instagram stories more gradually so a decrease in engagement on pages.

    can you elaborate more on this? i thought stories was just an additional feature of pages.. like how u can upload images/videos on your page, you can now also do "stories"

    Exactly, most people just scroll through the stories, and the effect is less engagement on photos and videos, to get a clearer picture read this http://blog.iconosquare.com/stories-killing-engagement/

    Same here... - 50%

    Its because my posts dont show up in the hasjtags. Doesn't matter if i use 1 hasjtag, 5 or 10 hasjtags ( spintex ).
    My account doesnt show up in search.
    By example : Blackhatworld
    Normally when i typ blackh i see my username.
    Now i typ my whole username and i must scroll down the search field.

    Only if i login on my phone and post something then i see it under that hasjtag.....

    Hashtags brings relatively no traffic, so either you normally get less than 100 likes or your problem is something else.

    I'm usually seeing a +/- ~10% difference from my average on posts, so from one day to the next it is not unusual for me to see a 20-25% difference. But I'm not seeing a constant drop in engagement from my previous average (last one months posts).

    Are you guys doing follow/unfollow?

    I've been unfollowing for all my accounts and engagement is improving

    I can suspect where the problem is. We have the engagement groups loosing the purpose they were meant for. That is why I was posting saying that we need to always have some rules that govern the groups. That will for sure bring some order in this whole thing and your likes will even increase over time. Give it a try today and the results will be seen easily.

    I have an account which has NEVER been botted, NEVER used hashtags, NEVER done follow/unfollow.

    It's all organic and manual and my engagement has still dropped from 700 to 200 in two weeks...
