    Hey I really want some advice from you guys.

    I have a meme account with 14.8k followers. Earlier I was easily getting around 800-1000 likes per post.

    But during the month of November I stopped posting due to certain reasons. Now I'm back and my engagement rate has dropped to barely 250 likes per post !

    Considering the content, I have basically tried to keep it the same (and added a few videos here and there)

    Is there a problem with my account. Is there any solution.

    Thanks in advance.

    Keep posting. Sometimes Instagram changes it's algorithm.

    this has been a recurring theme with a lot of people just recently, apparently instagram changed their algo and is making it a "safe space"

    Your posts are not popping on your followers feeds anymore due to them not engaging with your account lately. I track my followers behaviour and saw that it takes around 7 days for your posts not to appear anymore if they don't engage with you during this time.
    Best solution I could think of is start liking / commenting on your followers content to let them know that you are back.

    Like at least 1-3 posts on your followers posts for 4 days, do minimum follow/unfollows. Post high quality content, and put something like "tag a friend" in the description. With 3.4k followers my meme account often get up to 500 likes. Post 3-4 times a day, keep up the likes, follows, and unfollows and you'll be back on top of your followers feed in no time.
