    Overall engagement going down since last 2-3 days. Not in just 1-2 accounts but across several accounts. Also ads are rolling out globally. Anyone else noticed anything?

    Just hope its temporary and they don?t cap the reach like on facebook.

    what makes you think that it's only temporary? if it's working on FB and it makes people pay for the ads instead of leveraging their network for free, they would be stupid not to do and keep doing the same what they did on FB

    They decreased organic search but they aren't capping you like facebook did. All your followers will keep seeing all your posts.

    My engagement hasn't dropped... Specially because, I believe, most of them never came from organic search/explore tabs. All your followers still see your posts in their feeds. I don't think they will cut out the reach like Facebook, specially because IG's aims have always been completely different.

    I've noticed quite a few drops on my accounts, one of my accounts up until a week ago was receiving 300 likes on "every single" post.

    Now this same account (Which has gone up around 250 followers in the past week) is receiving around 140 likes on every picture.

    Horrible!

    Hey,

    I don't do coaching. Even if it was allowed, I still wouldn't feel comfortable "coaching" people.

    It took me YEARS to get to this point. My biggest IM earning days was the result of networking with people who are far more successful than me. Even reading their blogs/fb page/twitter was enough to learn from them.

    If you want to take IM to the next level, then don't rely on bhw to get you there. There are other places online that provide tons of value as good as bhw if not BETTER.

    Always stay curious and just because people say to look one specific way on bhw doesn't mean you have to as well.

    But BHW will always be my home. Can never forget the place where it all started.
