    For all the supposed experts in this forum who believe that Instagram is alerting their feed. This was posted today on Australia's leading news website. Screenshot_2015-11-14-06-33-55.jpg

    That should clear the doubts of a lot of members who were facing drops in the number of likes on their posts and thought it was due to this new Instagram advertising update.

    They limit the explore tab not the feed

    But we're not arguing it doesn't show up to the people that follow us, obviously they could never stop that, but in the explore section I think they are limiting reach.

    That's not exactly 'proof'. It is from news.com.au after all, probably Australia's worst news vendor.

    so people are claiming we can hide users we don't want to see in our feeds? but why not just unfollow them?

    Personally, I've only noticed an engagement drop on one account, and I think my targeting is to blame.

    Here we go.. the perfect example of another person in denial. #1 its fucking news.com.au Australia's largest news website..I should know I'm in Australia. #2 they are reporting on an event where a real person interviewed another real person then quoted that real person.

    Do you believe that September 11 was staged aswell?

    The engagement drop comes from the explore page limitations

    Thank you for posting this Mate. I was really sad because i just entered Instagram two months ago and was making very good progress and then i was hearing all this engagement drop bollocks.

    People probably rather browse profiles than their feed after the advertising update.

    You might be Australian, but you're also stupid. Every Australian knows that news.com.au is a piece of News Limited bullshit. Everything they produce is rubbish.

    I'd know, I'm Australian.
