    I'm wondering if anyone else experienced this. The past week engagement hasn't dropped as much but slowed down. I noticed a 4% drop, which is a normal fluctuation between 26% - 30% engagement. But I noticed my photos take more time to get its usual likes or comments.

    History: Girl page, ran the account for 4 weeks now, reaching 600 followers, averaging 124 likes and 20 comments. Top post 175 likes 67 comments. Have my time frames down and my hashtags are;

    #dreambae #bae #wce #goals #fitgirl #selfie #fit #fitness #fitnessmotivation #health #fitnessmodel #gym #squats #bikini #girl #model #sexy #followme #followforfollow #likeforlike

    My account has active fans but again I want to see if maybe anyone else is experiencing a slow down this week

    I noticed there was an update a few days ago for live videos. The update may have messed with the post algorithm. I speculate this because this is when it happened and my personal account is experiencing this as well

    I'm experiencing the same thing... some posts have simply less engagement, others have less engagement per hour however it lasts over a bigger period of time.

    Something has definitely changed with the algorithm. I'm posting at times of high traffic, and my demographic is within time-zone but as said, the likes a rolling in slow. I'm going to re-engage my follower by liking some of their posts. This should coax some of them to see my account and like a few photos I've posted, and have my account be seen again on their story. My theory is that the update may have lowered my priority on stories, and people are seeing my posts later. I have to work back my engagement
