I was curious with all the changes to the instagram algorithm, which kind of instalikes matter the most to get the maximum reach (or explore)? For example, does a like from a follower matter more to get more reach amongst followers? Do non-follower likes get you closer to explore more than from followers? Does an account with more followers/engagement have more power in maximizing your reach (top tags, explore)? (addon question thanks to @chad2320 for making me think of it) Does the engagement rate matter for maximizing reach/ explore? (For example, does an account with 250 followers but with 100 likes/photo get to explore before an account with 500 followers with 100 likes/photo?) I feel that its been discussed on this forum in parts of posts but I don't think the topic has been centralized. (if there has been another post about this discussion, feel free to link it/them so we don't discredit others contribution to the discussion. I've looked to see if there were other posts intended to be like this but have lucked out so its possible I didn't look hard enough. But this is a good backup incase I was right) All this info matters I think for how one chooses to grow their account/maximize the reach of their accounts. So all input is well appreciated for myself and the other users seeking to grow their accounts.
