    So yeah.... Ive been using Instagram with Instagress about 8 months now and I usually receive about 1k likes average a post, but since that day where ig had issues and no one could log in, my likes have dropped (a lot). Usually within an hour I hit 600,but now it's like 12 likes within 24 hours. I've even tried different days of the week at different times with the same result. At first, I thought my post weren't appearing on my followers feeds, so I made a new account, followed my main, and I was able to see my new post...so now I have no clue what's going on. Anyone have an idea?

    If you make a research you'll see that a LOT of people here are experimenting this problem. I think the best solution is to grow with shoutouts of instagram ads if you are serious about it. That's what I plan to do

    Because of their recent updates i think posts are not being visible to larger audience or they might have done some changes in their algorithm..

    I thought about that, but friends I know of with around the same engagement I used to have weren't affected. Could I possibly be flagged or banned In some way from using a bot

    I dropped a ton. 10 likes the entire day. Usually I would hit 700 at the least.

    It's basically because your post isn't showing up in the "explore" tab so you get less audience.
    Same happened to me, can't do anything about it, just keep working on it

    Youll be surprised how many come from the explore tab.

    its because you are botting, instagram is punishing your account. My accounts that are not botting are doing better than ever!
