    Anyone else experiencing this?
    From the end of November/beginning of December one of my accounts (the biggest one) started gaining less followers than before, then on one day it just lost almost 300 followers.
    I started panicking and turned on FL again (comments, follow+unfollow).
    After that I gained some new followers but as you can see on the screen shot it didn’t help much.
    I do not have ghost block or something like that because I can see every new follower in my followers list and same applies for followings.
    There have been some problems with engagement which affected pretty much everyone but in general I see increase in engagement on all of my accounts including this one. Also, a lot of my posts make it at the top of different tags in my niche. And that is the exact reason why I don’t understand what the hell is happening.

    UPD: my second account that is only 85k still grows really good no matter if FL turned on or off.

    I also just noticed that not all my posts are showing on specific tag, but everything is fine with another account.

    I notice in my newest account that I'm not showing on the hashtags I use. Other accounts are fine...

    I don't mean to steal your thread, but can you explain more what you are saying that You know you're not being ghost blocked because you can see your new followers?

    My question is, how can someone tell if they're being ghost blocked or not?

    Any ideas guys? What the hell is with this forum? Before people answered any question, now there are only engagement groups and that’s it.

    maybe because no one has a solid answer.

    here are somethings to try:

    -turn off botting for a few days then retry
    -change your targetting and settings
    -go manual and see if there is a change

    Will try to turn the bot off. I actually thought it was paused but apparently it wansn’t.
    Also, if it somehow linked to bot, my other account (85k) still gains lots of followers even though I use bot on it.

    Bro, seriously. Stop that botting on your main. It may make it even worse man.

    The majority is suffering at the moment, you are not the problem. The IG algo is the b*tch at the moment.

    Yea it happens sometimes. It has been with me too. Nothing to worry about. Sometime it takes time to update the count.

    How long did it take your account to get back on track? This is so frustrating, don’t know what to think about it.
    I have at least one viral post a day now and still (!!!!!!!!) I either gain 10-20 followers daily or lose them.

    How come not all accounts are affected? As I wrote already, I have couple of other accounts and they are totally fine, they are gaining followers like nothing ever happened. I just don’t understand how the f*ck this algo works and it’s driving me nuts! Even if I follow people without unfollowing and like posts OR do absolutely nothing - it doesn’t matter people keep unfollowing. WHY? The content didn’t change at all!
    It feels like Instagram f*cks up just one account, mine, because no one else seems to be affected like that.

    Haha man this is what I am talking about. I stuck at 717k for almost 2 WEEKS. And I am almost a week at 717,7XX followers. It keeps getting a little bit less or a little bit more. In the meantime all my competitors are growing just fine.

    thats their goal, if the algo doesnt appear to make any sense then its harder to play the system.

    True that, but it also doesn’t make any fucking sense for normal users who just want their account to grow, not by much, but still. I am pretty sure there are a lot of people who don’t even know what follow liker or massplanner is, and still they are affected by this shitty algo.

    how many photos do you post per day?
    I posted only 3 - 4 photos per day... got stuck for almost two weeks.
    What seemed to work for me was "Spamming" posting every 2 or 3 hrs (6-8 posts per day).
    This got my followers per day up again within two days. Maybe it will help you too

    I post 4 pics + 1 or 2 paid posts per day, but not always.
    Sounds good, I am willing to try every suggestion now. Thanks, I’ll let you know if it helps.

    Same here. I actually hate spamming, but I saw some accounts growing 3k followers a day with posting 10-20 posts per day... So I thought, let's try posting more. Good luck!
