    I posted a photo today and it has got an extraordinary amount of likes, but no followers from anyone liking it? I did make the top posts in some hashtags with around 400k hashtags, but I'm not getting any followers from it, just a ton of likes. Is this normal?

    I'm pretty sure you're just getting likes from bots monitoring those hashtags.

    Update: I now have over 2300 likes on this photo, which is more likes than I have followers. Is this all just from being the top post in a couple hashtags? I got a couple followers but not many.

    Either bots or your profile needs to look prettier.

    Before people follow from Hashtags they have to see you as a popular figure... Make sure to increase growth like a brand.

    Interesting, seems odd that we get so many likes but not really any followers from it.

    have you tried checking a few profiles of the ones that liked the photo? If not, then go check them out.
    If they look real, follow them. Chances are, they will follow back.

    Stop triple-posting and stop saying the same shit over and over.
    10 users already replied to you and all 10 said the same.

    Not sure why so many are mentioning bots. This happens all the time when a photo gets featured for a certain hashtag. Happens from time to time if your picture gets a very high percentage of likes based on the impressions (how many people see it) - sometimes it gets featured.
