    Hi! I started my instagram around 5 weeks ago, and i would get an average of 100-150 followers a day. I Follow, like and comment. I have noticed the past two days, my followers per day numbers have dropped dramatically. I also notice a lot less likes on my photos, very random. Here is photo of what has happened. Account has 3.4k followers..

    Any Thoughts? Untitled.jpg

    Thanks

    Same goes for me, daily average was around +120-150 followers (not using any bots).

    But for the last 2-3 days I've got only +30-40 followers.

    And I'm probably the first result for the main keyword in my niche.

    I also had that happen.....I have around 7k followers I use to get 400 likes...now I struggle to get 200...

    I think it's because the more you get....it gets harder to attend to everyone

    I am now looking for something like social autobots...but I haven't made up my mind

    Could be because a lot of accounts got banned or something like that

    that can be a reason, yes

    that chart in OP's post shows the daily cumulative balances of followers and unfollowers - at least it's labelled with absolute increase or decrease -, so it can be that a more than avg amount of users unfollowed OP for some reason (OP made a dumb post etc) or what you said, that some followers of OP's got banned, the dip on the graph doesn't automatically mean a net follower drop

    if OP closed all of these possibilities out, then he can safely say that something else happened, but until then the above should be considered as possible causes

    I'd say...this needs so much more analysis that its almost a waste of time type down a response.
    this thread needs more data ;-P
    a lot more

    I don't get what you mean, this isn't my followers amount, this is how many i get a day. my likes/follows have been down since 3 days ago, and nothing has changed. I've had this happen while botting before, hopefully it just blows over...

    You're either botting to obvious or your content is shitty. It can also be as honeybird says, Instagram might be cleaning up spam accounts.

    Well, I've seen my likes on my big pages drop in likes. My pictures used to get 4k-7k likes as an example on my 70k account, now it's more like 2.5k-5k.
