    Ok, I wanted to post a photo the other day and see if "imGrej" method is working. I've carefully chosen 15 not saturated tags (less than 1mil posts) that relate to the picture. Also I added two 4mil, one 6mil and one 25mil tags. Posted a pic and a comment with tags a second later. And what?

    The picture never appeared in any of these tags. WTF?

    Then I found a #horizon where pics appear every minute, but the total number of medias is at 210k. So I queried my database for how many medias was there before:

    Code:
    horizon   "2015-12-13 22:05:02.599558"   3341373
    horizon   "2015-12-27 22:05:02.886809"   3370446
    horizon   "2016-01-10 22:05:10.827807"    199846
    horizon   "2016-01-24 22:06:01.720086"    202751
    Obviously something is not working at Instagram's premises or tag exposure was deliberately limited.

    same thing happened to #gift #bestgift #birthdaygift etc.
    they used to show a lot of pics but not anymore.
    they are obviously fighting tag spamming.

    I checked top posts in the tags I used. Some of them posted "tagging" also as an additional comment, some had 25-30 tags. So I have no idea what is happening.
