tried a post with 1k+ likes plus comments, and it does not even show up in recent posts...
what? i don't get what you mean.
it's a tag play.
i think my account is flagged because i added likes to a 3-day old post.
a 3-day old post is not supposed to get fast likes.
another possible reason is my bought followers dropped 50% in one day (from 1300 to 700)?
do all new posts show up in Most Recent?
or is there some kind of criteria such as # of posts? # of followers or following?
my account is 3 months old, i deleted an old post, so i only have 2 posts now.
Are you sure it's not in popular posts instead of recent posts?
Since you added a bunch of likes, it should be one of the top posts for that certain hashtag.
Also, make sure account isn't on private.
if it's in top posts, it will be in most recent. my post is nowhere to be found, for ALL tags (20-30).
no, account is not private, because i can repost it from another account.
i thought i have done everything right:
i added the likes in 30-40 minutes, the comments within an hour.
i know it's possible that i dont show up in top posts because i only have 700+ (fake) followers, which might be a factor for top posts.
however, if its not in most recent, there is something wrong - either i am ghosted, or not every post from anybody shows in Most recent.
try using a hashtag not many have used before and see if your posts appears there. If you add hashtags some time after the post has been posted, they are not shown under recent posts, I don't know if you know that but IG changed it. What's important now is the time the image was posted, so be sure to add your tags either in the caption or in the comments asap after posting.
and if it happened, well, I guess that's a really good idea of IG, giving people who invest a lot in engagement to get their recognition rather than giving people who add fake likes and followers their presence in the top posts, tbh.
try it with a strange hashtag only a few people have used and see if you appear there.
yes, i know about the time factor. i think within 30 minutes, the post can still show in top posts.
with 30 tags, i do have some that have relatively low competition.
well, I would not say it's the hashtag factor since I've seen quite a few accounts being shown at the top posts using (about) 30 hashtags.
3 hours later now, even a never-been-used tag shows nothing.
ok, i tested with a 3w post, and the tag DOES show my post.
so my account is ghosted?
Just wanted to tell you: I've seen that my post also does not appear under "Most Recent" although I posted a tagging comment within a second after the media was submitted. Only after 15 minutes I found my post under tags I mentioned. I am sure it wasn't there before. But 15 minutes was obviously too late, because you needed to scroll down many pages.
I did not buy likes or followers. So I am sure IG is somehow ranks which posts should appear under "Most Recent" and which should not.
so the tag eventually showed your post?
according to my tests, a 3-week-old posts from another account shows under a newly-added jibberish tag. the new account never shows under a jibberish tag.
so we still dont know if all posts from 'normal' accounts show in Most recent.
Yes, the tags did show off, but approx 10-15 minutes later and 20-30 pages of scrolling. So it was too late.
have you used more than 30 hashtags and/or users? then it will not show up @ recent posts....
can you explain what you want to ask?
you made me count it - exactly 30 tags!
i repost it through a bigger account, 1/3 in top posts. the did show in recent posts.
bluestacks wouldnt post caption the first time, possibly because it was more than 30 tags?
i just realized that there is a 30-tag limit on instagram.
bruh, are you serious?
u did not know that?
yeah but thats instatrivia. if you can tell me why i cannot sell a shirt, youd be my hero.
