    You guys are so funny. Weeks ago I've already told people that It's just a matter of time till instagram is going to do something against people doing like4like and using engagement groups. Even a week ago I posted a thread to warn people about doing excessive exchange of likes with other people, because at some point I will only do harm and no good. Everybody was laughing at me. :D But guess what? Now I'm the one who's laughing. Look at all those accounts that were able to gain 5k, 10k, 15k a day. They completely died out gaining up to 80% less than weeks before. I could name you 10 accounts, 20 accounts.. all with the same scenario and every single one of them is still doing like4like daily, HOURLY.The account owners are wondering what happened.. "new algorithms" "IG penelizes old accs and benefits new accs"..
    I guess I'm the only one laughing here lol, you guys may still not realize it after this thread.
    Do you REALLY think IG won't give a shit about this? Accounts liking 300 pictures from totally unrelated accounnts in 30 mins every 3 hours, EVERY SINGLE DAY?
    ALL of your accs are going to be marked as bots or spam by instagram and at some point, either your growth will be freezed, or in the worst case, even your account gets banned. And that's TOTALLY understandable. People are smart to be able to grow fast, but not smart enough to realize that they appear like a robot. All you want is growing fast, but all you do is uploading posts with the same caption, liking pictures of the same accounts every day, not answering comments, while gaining 10k a day, for weeks and months. How would IG threat you? I bet they would see you as a honest person, uploading great content every day.

    In conclusion, I just stated facts. I have all the knowledge and proofs that this is true, believe me or not. (almost) Everybody from the big engagment and like4like groups slowed down in growth, this happened at the excact same time. I'm able to grow as fast as before without those useless and time-consuming groups, my growth hasn't been limited, which just prooves that my theory is true.

    This post won't even affect this many people here, because 80% of bhw are growing 100 followers a day, but for all the others, don’t waste your time with engagement groups, like4like or even comments (lol). Trust me, there are better ways.
    Good luck :)

    I don't see any facts lol & the only evidence you could have provided you left out.. this seems like more of a hissy fit or temper tantrum because nobody seems to believe you.

    Out of curiosity when do you think this change occurred? Reason I ask is I follow 2 major accounts in my niche on SocialBlade along with my own accounts, and one friends account who is also in my niche. I noticed towards the end of January and into February the major accounts that I follow dropped off HARD on daily followers....I'm talking 1300+ daily to under 500 daily. My account and my friends account on the other hand have sky rocketed. For example I was gaining under 100 a day and my daily follower increase is has gone to 700+ daily since that time.

    Now before I give the IG algorythm ALL the credit, I did increase my number of daily posts by double as well as started creating my own unique content during that same time frame which I know helped a lot on my account. The major account though has been doing the same thing forever so something triggered a penalty.

    I don't use engagement groups...could never find one in my niche so I never get wasted my time.

    The two images are screenshots from my SB account...one is the large authority account in my niche and the other is mine.

    Most people who use engagement groups here probably never got any type of results in the first place. Shame.

    OP you hit the nail on the head. Instagram will catch accounts that are doing the same thing every single days for weeks on end.

    Now, that could be follow/unfollow, commenting, or doing massive likes, or like rounds. With that said, if you skip a round here and there and just barely make some small changes, IG should ignore your account.

    As for me, I run many accounts and apart from getting hit by the IG algorithm that started messing around in September 2016 until now, all the accounts are almost back to normal gains (followers/likes/comments).

    If you see big accounts getting hit, it could be the algorithm is getting to them now, instead of the past few months; or IG is temp banning them for something else (rounds???).

    I've seen many accounts doing rounds that are gaining massive followings and organic likes. I'm not one of the latter ones, as I run other's personal accounts, and it's not as easy to grow a personal account as it is to grow one where we just "borrow" other's viral content.

    If anyone has direct links as to accounts getting hit only because they use rounds, please point them out. Otherwise, it could be just the algorithm, or because the accounts are just botting along without any changes for weeks on end.

    Nah, this is just how the game works, nobody constantly has insane engagement forever, even if you do it legit, there's a certain period of time your account's posts go viral a lot easier, and then it slowly dies down.
    It isn't because using EG or anything, its just how instagram works lol, but nice try trying to prove "youre the IG god" :)

    Yeah it was a matter of time...

    But its also a matter of time before Instagram dies out completely (will be years but eventually it will).

    IM is about going hard and then adapting to the changing nature of the internet.

    Somebody sounds unhappy because they cant make squat $ on Instagram.
