    have been reading other posts about followers is it even worth buying 10k followers on a 13k acc?
    back story on this acc it has amazing engagement like everything I post hits explore but my engagement and my followers don't add up at all, I'm getting average of 20-70k views on all of my videos which is all I post and I only have 13k is it even worth adding on 10k likes to make it look better.

    No, because sooner or later you'll get flagged.

    IG algo is getting more and more advanced, they are onto you.

    Your reach can/will be limited and get stuck.

    Organic is all the way for long term. Just accept the ups and downs. :)

    I have one word for you OP: Mase.

    http://www.complex.com/music/2014/12/mase-instagram-the-humbling

    When Instagram did that sweep in 2014, all of his followers disappeared and he was the laughing stock. You don't want that to be you.

    It's better to gain 1 legit follower a day, than 10k fake ones. People will know they are fake anyway. Because like you said, your views, engagement, and follow count will not add up.

    thanks for the advice, but that's not what I'm saying what I mean is that i have 13k on this account but am getting engagement as if I had around 50-60k followers so I just wanted to boost it up a bit.

    you buy 10k followers from the start?
    won't that just kill your engagement?

    Don't do it. Fake anything could kill all of your efforts thus far.

    Ok but have seen some drop in engagement do to the algo so I know it's not just me.
    Seems IG is fucking the users very hard as there are no accounts winning in this update just people taking a huge L.

    That is what's happening. When they changed the feed from chronological to showing you the things you "like" the most, my theory was that they did that to purposely drop engagement so they could start charging to reach those same people. Like they did to FB fan pages.

    I follow people on Instagram, but I rarely ever engage or "like" anything. So my feed was all out of whack when they made the feed change. I can't find any of the people I enjoy in the feed section. I have to go to their actual profile page if I want to see their photos. That is too much work, so I started following my favorites on Snapchat and left Instagram behind.

    That could be another reason your engagement has dropped. Your followers may have just jumped ship from Instagram altogether because they can no longer find you.

    I predicted this a long time ago that snapchat will be very big I mean bigger than it already is.
    So if IG is fucking everyone I'm not down to pay money for promotion fuck that.

    I'm not willing to pay for Instagram's shenanigans either.

    You can probably create a Snapchat and post your videos there as well. You can place your Snap name in your Instagram bio, and tell people in your Instagram caption to follow you on Snap. You can also put your Snap name on your website, and you can also post your videos on YouTube.

    That way, when Instagram starts to REALLY screw people over, all of your followers will already be safe and sound on other platforms.

    I doubt you'll get flagged or anything for buying fake followers, or elseyou could just buy fake followers for your competition to get rid of them lol.

    You won't get flagged but at the end of the day everyone is now wise to the interaction on accounts and if it doesn't look right you'll spend more time defending your page. With the right content you'll grow quickly. People tend to neglect the content and focus on promotion of poor accounts.

    When you look at the grow you can achieve organically if done every day it's really worth just putting in the work manually. Everyone is using Instagram for various schemes right now and you have to get personal with it.
