    The last 5 days i am receiving about 100 likes within the first hour instead of 600+ per hour. I have no idea why. Im posting at the same time and using the same hashtags.
    Has anyone else had this problem with the drop in engagement?

    A lot of accounts were suspended recently.

    Many of them may auto-like certain hashtags that were in your niche.

    Same issue, the number of likes has probably dropped by 50%. The problem with mine is it doesn't really matter if I used hashtags or not, I always had around 1.5k likes per picture (weird thing is I was consistently getting 2k per picture before-last night...). Now it's around 700 to 1k. I noticed this last night, maybe it's just the timing. i'll keep testing

    Hash tags don't work for some people. Maybe you are silently flagged like me for using some app that is not approved by Instagram.

    have the same problem in the last two weeks. never used any app's, bots, etc. don't know why... i thought this maybe happens cause i never posted own content. i just repost or post pictures that are already on instagram!?!
