    I had a unique look at 5 thousand different IG accounts and their 500M+ followers in the past 3 months. Here is what I think:

    If you and your "friends" like/comment/tag/mention on each others pictures, the only people that will see those pictures on explore is your "friends" and their fake IG followers. Good luck with that. It makes it that much easier for IG to identify a group of fake pages and bomb them all together.

    You can't "game" IG algorithm. It changes more frequently than ever before, and fight against spam is real. You might slip under ban hammer this week, but next week you will get shut down.

    If you're trying to build your page based on "engagement groups", "power likes" or comments, or whatever other BS your friends will come up with next week, you will fail. sooner or later, you will fail. It doesn't last.

    Post good content
    Interact with YOUR followers
    Don't game the system

    Follow those 3 rules if you want to succeed in IG business today.

    OP has made a good point. However my question below.

    1) What is consider as a great content on IG? I see people taking selfie and gather tons of like while another person take selfie but there is less than 10 likes?
    2) How do you promote these so call great contents and get in front of eye balls?

    Eye balls do not magically appear just because you are posting great contents right?

    Nice try.

    U mad bro?

    Try to grow 100k without help or automation. You will fail miserably, no matter what your content is. It will take you a loooong time to get there and then what? Still earning peanuts with 100k. Ain't got time for that, while I can grow 6-numbered accounts in just a few months.

    And why do you assume my partners have fake followers? Prove it with facts before you open your mouth with horsecrap. You are insulting my partners who worked hard and our network is superstrong, as we check eachother, 1 strike out. You better STFU and crawl back to that shitty site of yours.

    I can't stand guys like you. Because you can't grow, others can't grow or they are fake.

    That's all nice and sweet, but can you do the holier than thou, self righteous act, AFTER you send the money you owe to people on time and try not to scam them by marking it as paid when it isn't? Everybody side-eyed the sudden raise in fees, but we let it pass, it's your site, your rules after all, but to not do your part of the job is not gonna pass buddy, do better, and then comeback to lecture people on how to act properly, and on what's right and wrong.

    And how are engagement groups more "gaming the system" than buying shout outs? Many accounts on your website have fake followers too, so everything you've said in your OP could apply to buying shoutouts as well. Give me a break.

    I'm getting a vibe that you're mad. I doubt you even had close to 500M followers, probably a few hundred thousand. I've never been banned from IG, multiple 300k+ accounts and my personal is approaching 10K. Get a brain, then find a way to use it.

    The only people that will take serious the BS that you just wrote are the same people that use shoutouts platforms to get ripped off by 30% every time they make a sale.
