    Hey Everyone,

    Did anyone else saw this once you got into your instagram account? I did not accepted the 'request' but it's available now on my settings to switch any time I want. According to Instagram, there're some benefits in case I decide to do that.

    I am very skeptical at this moment because I know what happened to fan pages on FB and today you can barely reach 5% of your followers. I am afraid Instagram is going on the same road and switching to a business account today will mean that tomorrow you will reach less than 5% of your followers.

    What do you guys think about that?

    It's already been in the works. Without switching to a business account, your posts no longer show to 100% of your followings as it's no longer in chronological order. It's more detailed into analytics and big data now. Switching to a business account just allows you to add email, phone, and business address - but more importantly, allows you to sponsor your posts much easier. Similar to Facebook "boost".

    People have been making millions advertising through instagram while IG made nothing. Tables about to reverse.

    Shoutouts will still be out there, but not as much as now companies will be able to promote their own posts much easier. I'm curious to see the cost differences.
