    Hey folks,

    I have a 3 week old IG account with 2k followers. I started using instagress a week ago to help my account grow. I decided not to use FL as I am somewhat casual and wanted ease of use.

    Anyway.... I was getting 60 likes consistently with my original text joke niche posts. Since Tuesday, I have hit a brick wall and am struggling to even hit 20 likes.

    My follower growth rate is ok in my mind (~100 followers a day). I just want to get my engagement back.

    In addition, I have been consistently posting 4 times a day in the same spread out slots.

    Any ideas of what is going on here?

    Your answer is in the thread. The moment you started botting your engagement dropped, go figure...

    Many non-botting people are facing engagement decreases at the moment, so what are you trying to say?

    I don't think that's necessarily true. I've been botting for a while & my engagement has dropped off quite a bit this week. I think it's just due to the time of the year - summer / 4th of July holiday.

    OP - keep doing what you're doing. You're not the only one.

    And don't forget that more and more people are getting the non-chronological feed. IG might be shitranking you for whatever reason.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I was thinking that IG might be penalizing me and tanking my visibility as well.
