    Do any of you guys know if it's possible, or if its already happening, that instagram can block your content from reaching some of your followers? I figured this would be a good question to ask considering that facebook owns instagram and facebook has done that to many (if not all) the facebook pages.

    If not does instagram flag accounts that have been following or using third party applications and reduces engagement?​

    (If my hypothesis is correct) I figured this could serve as a explanation to the whole, "I have 15K organinc followers and my engagement has been the same" problem.

    Apparently, Instagram isn't doing this quite yet. It still seems that everything you post appears in your feed, as this feed is based on time (it's chronological), unlike FB's feed which is not. Plus, all accounts are accounts. There is no differentiation between pages and personal accs, like FB.

    Could someone test this out?

    maybe someone with a ton of accounts (100-500) could follow their main and check to see if the post has reached, their audience (the 100-500 extra accounts). I know this is super tedious so there has to be a way that a bot could test this? Im super curious now.

    You have 10k accounts? :O wow how much does it cost to run all of those? Do you earn enough to make them fully sustainable?

    Damn thats insane, so that means that Instagram could be definitely blocking content, or there could be something wrong with how your bot or script works but I doubt thats the problem. Any other way we can conduct a valid accurate test?

    It's true that they have limited the expose and this is nothing new here. It took place at least 2 months ago, if not more.

    But you can still grow your engagement easily if you know what you're doing.

    yep someone already tested this out and confirmed it. It not only affects your engagement but your organic growth as well
