    I hear ppl saying "I'm getting X followers after each photo shared". My question is: WHY?
    I'm not talking about hashtags here. How can sharing pics to increase your followers number? Is not logic for me...I mean, the pics are only showed to your followers (and no, they dont mention nobody on these pictures), so, from where are getting those new followers?
    Thanks

    Well, then there has to be more than a reason for the increasing followers. More and better content will definitely help you in increasing your followers but with the right hashtags and interesting captions. Or by tagging the right people in the pictures. Or by mentioning them in the comments.

    It could also be such that other people are reposting their pictures and sending the followers.

    I guess you share the picture and then your followers retweet it and then their followers see it and follow you.

    People want to see more of whatever you posted so they follow you. Am I missing something obvious here? All those fitness girls get thousands of followers that way. 90% wankers who want to see their next picture, and 10% other girls who want to do the same.

    Hm...I think yes.
    Share a photo = get more followers (w/o captions,hashtags,mentions)
    How they know/see you posted something now, if they aren't your followers??? It doesn't appear on their news feed...

    Unless somebody had a unique niche "They" are not gaining followers by just sharing pictures and nothing else. "They" are probably sharing high quality pictures and doing other actions such as liking or following people in a similar niche. Its not all about captions,hashtags or mentions. Your overthinking it and not factoring all the doesn't variables. Some ppl have strong Twitter accounts and send users to instagram this way too

    In the Activity tab under Following it will show what the people you are following are liking or commenting on. That is a way to reach non followers simply by a follower liking your picture
