    I have a few accounts that I've spent awhile building, and I'm considering switching them to business accounts in order to gain analytics access.

    My fear however is that Instagram will end up decreasing business accounts reach in order to force them to use paid ads......just like Facebook did.

    Who has made the switch to a business account and what is your experience thus far? Has anyone changed over a 100k or more account?

    Interested to discuss...

    My screen print business page has 20K followers, switched it over and didn't notice any difference. But I'm sure they will limit your reach down the road.

    I was thinking the same thing - sooner or later the "business" accounts will get some kind of limitations. Just what FB did with the pages ....
