Seriously, wtf guys. We've all been having engagement issues because of some alleged "drop off" that nobody knows about and can't quite put their finger on. I was in denial for a long time and was convinced things were going to change as the account grew. But i am now at my wits end and am certain, without a doubt..... I have been losing engagement steadily every since I had 10k followers. At 10k I was getting many posts go over 1k likes. I now have 41k and am lucky to get 500. It has been gradual ever since 10k. This is a serious mind fuck. If you think about it and do the math..... The drop off is HUMONGOUS. Like way huge. Big red flag. 10k followers = 1000 likes 41k followers = MAYBE 500 likes????? They can't have an algorithm, can they? It's a feed... Users either see it or they don't. Is instagram fucking hiding pictures from users as you gain more followers? I am an authority figure in this niche and each post gets between 5-100 comments.
