    Not sure if this is Instagram's latest changes or not but I've notice people I follow who have 13K - 18K followers engagement and likes really drop the last few days compared to historic pictures. They're still posting the same type of images and their following is increasing with real followers.

    I have around 5K (I'm doing it manually as it's my main account, I know they're botting as they like pics 24/7 yet are never banned) and I'm getting roughly triple their likes and engagement.

    Anyone have ideas. Will it mean once I hit 10K the same will happen to me or not?

    It is Instagram's Algorithm changes or other changes they've made. This is only recently I've noticed it happen to them.

    well if they are botting engagement is bound the be lower because they will have tons of crap followers. Unlike you, following quality users manually (that's a presumption). But since instagram is rolling out server changes, they might have changed something with the discovery tab...no idea tho

    Yeah sure. Define quality users lol.

    My botted followers would be nearly (if not all) the same as I would follow manually. You think I'm botting/scraping fashion accounts when I have a car niche?

    Your engagement will get raped regardless. E.g my 278K account avg 4.5K likes in 24hrs yet my 45K account has 2K likes avg...sounds promising? So did the first account until jewstagram fucked with its settings.

    If you check your feed, you can unquestionably observe that it's still chronological.

    Quit making such a fuss out of it. They said the change will be occurring in the forthcoming months; I doubt anything has changed as of now.
