    Guys,

    Did you notice a low performance on your acc Activity?

    I have 25% likes from non-followers. This is crap. I got a 45K ACC with High unique quality pics (fashion) with 690likes/pic :-( I should have as compared to similar accounts 1,5K minimum.

    I think IG has scored my acc with their "Quality Score" low... and now I don't show on pop/recommend page

    For those using bot, did you guys noticed a lower rate from non-followers too??

    Thanks for sharing!

    I used to get 200 followers a day and now I'm only receiving 50-100 a day. I think Instagram's security system definitely caught on and like you, I've been getting less activity on my pictures.

    What are you using to get these metrics?

    Mate, I've seen you posting this since a month ago, and keep repeating it :)

    I think that Instagram did some changes in their algorithms, even I don't get the amount of likes I used to get before, but I'm still close to it, so I definitely think something's wrong on your end if you only get 600 likes out of 45K followers account.

    Maybe most of the followers are no longer using their accounts, maybe the content you post is not interesting, maybe too many shoutouts, maybe you changed your niche, I don't know. But I'm certain Instagram did some changes, but I doubt it affects pages that much as yours, you're getting lower reach that you would get on Facebook, lol.

    Probably using iconosquare :)

    Also on this note.. according to iconosquare I'm only getting 1% engagement from non-followers (spread rate). I didn't realise that is bad, should I be worried?

    I'm still noticing the same thing as the OP.

    Knowing that IG is owned by facebook, its no surprise that they would start bringing a quality score of some sort into the equation. My next step is to stop the bot for an hour while I post to see if it affects my like totals.

    I've looked around IG and from what I can tell in my limited research, a lot of accounts are seeing less likes per photo over the last 2-3 weeks. This is also not the first time I have noticed this.

    They change the algorithm on the back-end all the time. When I stared, I could like 350 photos/hour every hour and it reset to the minute. I've been liking manually for 2 years with phonegram before FL. It's all the way down to 130/hour before the warning comes up on phonegram. The reach, thus far has been random. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Keep posting and working to improve your content. The photos that get more likes...post more of those. Mix it up...Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook Gary Vaynerchuk

    The quality score and paid advertisements are coming (my guess). They are probably waiting for the community to grow to a certain threshold before fully releasing paid adverts. Milk it while you can!

    Is this a manual process?

    That's my thoughts as well. They're making room for advertisers to get into the action.

    Honestly, I can't wait when they do open the doors to everyone on their ad platform.

    Why's that? I'd love to get your insight on this.

    This sounds a lot like vague guessing...

    I'm sure I've seen this thread about 4 times now....

    Maybe it is your page that is the problem? Not trying to attack you or anything but I've been botting and on a 4k account I get 500-600 likes per pic.

    You are saying that with the usage of bots and services like FollowLiker, Instagram is decreasing your score?
    Would this potentially not even make FollowLiker a viable resource anymore?

    mm Not guessing at all, When you do the same thing month over month and your avrg/ engament trend is positive then it tells you are doing good.

    But when suddenly the trend turns into decreasing, something outside my hands has changed, isn't?

    I've been doing only likes with BOT 1500-2000 a day to followers of same target content than mine.

    But yes... I have probably done something wrong.

    Thanks a lot for your comments guys, just wanted to share with you my experience in case is usefull for you.

    Regards

    My content is high quality (unique content), But if your average likes/pic isn't growing... we are out of the game in long run dude :_(

    I did adquire fans by only doing likes to followers or relevant accounts of mine...

    I'm just trying to share my experience... Watch out for your Non-Followers likes percentage over time... If you only rely on bot and your followers likes you are out...
